Hello there,

i just stumpled upon turnkey and i am thrilled. Very easy flawless installation even for a newbie like me.

i do have a some questions:

1. is it possibly to switch an appliances, specifically joomla, to ssl?

2. Is the appliance safe to use without any knowledge of server maintenance/security?

Moreover i would suggest to make an appliance out of opengoo or something similar...

All webapp type appliances...

All webapp type appliances (e.g., Joomla) support SSL out of the box. Just browse to https://appliance_ip
Further more, Joomla has the configuration option to force SSL for the entire site, or only for the administration console
Joomla Administration -> Global configuration -> Server -> Force SSL
Server maintenance
Well, that is quiet an open-ended question. Essentially, all servers need some form of maintenance now and then. We have tried to minimize overhead by configuring all TurnKey appliance to auto-update daily with the latest security patches.

I was unaware of OpenGoo, but it looks interesting and we will definately take a look, thanks!
