    • Installed from upstream source code (via git/composer) to /var/www/magento

      Security note: Updates to Magento may require supervision so they ARE NOT configured to install automatically. See below for updating Magento.

    • Hourly cron job for maintenance.
  • SSL support out of the box.
  • Adminer administration frontend for MySQL (listening on port 12322 - uses SSL).
  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email from web applications (e.g., password recovery)
  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache2, PHP, MySQL and Postfix.
