TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Get error 404 - Component not found in Joomla Appliance, with a SAML Plugin

I have installed the Joomla appliance VM and everyhting works well.

However, we need to make Joomla a Service Provider (SP) in a SAML federation so that the SAML Identity Provider (IdP) can authenticate users and re-direct them to Joomla in Single-Sign-On

This scenario has worked well with a regular Ubuntu VM, with a Joomla 1.5 package and the SAML plugin in Joomla.

What is happening in the Joomla appliance, I believe, it's the way Joomla is installed as a Virtual Host. When we install the SAML plugin in Joomla, the metadata created by the SAML plugin in the Joomla appliance is of the form:

http://<domain name>/joomla15/components/.../...

instead of:


http://<domain name>/components/.../...

So it appears as if the Joomla appliance Apache configuration is not resolving the re-directs.
Any suggestions? I have tried to see if in Webmin I could change parameters to the /usr/shr/joomla Virtual Host, but I don't know where to begin
Any hints will be appreciated
