Optimization advice to reduce memory consumption on a Virtualmin server

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

With Virtualmin installed on your server, running fine and updated regularly it is time to optimise.
It is important to keep your system healthy and efficient it is a good practice to check from time to time what is going on with gauge and graph.
Plus your server run one or several different software (Tiki CMS, Wordpress, Laracast, Prestashop, etc) and you may also use different version of those applications that need different requirement to work. In time you will accumulate several version of PHP and find out that you don’t need some functionality you previously set.

How install Tiki Wiki after PHP8 is installed by Virtualim

Author: Bernard Sfez - Published

PHP8 is coming and developers of major softwares like Tiki started to rewrite and adapt code that will be released in the future stable versions.
It is already included in the last Virtualmin upgrade and will be used by default for the Linux Command Line Interface (CLI). If you install a Tiki 21 or a Tiki 22 this may trick the CLI setup.sh install script.
But as it is documented at the Tiki Dev Composer page it is possible to tell the script which PHP to use. To do so you have to give the path of the CLI you want to use.
It is /usr/bin/phpversion as installed by virtualmin you can check the content of the usr/bin directory to find the right folder name for the version you want to use ls -l /usr/bin/
In my case I have several version installed and using mainly Tiki 22 now I use PHP7.4 so the complete command will be:

sh setup.sh -p /usr/bin/php7.4


Once the install script complete, don't forget to set permission (f) and then you can start to configure your Tiki and set its database.
