I went ahead and paid the $250 for the unlimited license - mainly to support what appears to be shaping up as a pretty freat virtual hosting project... I'm pretty excited about it.
A couple of thoughts:
a common thread I am seeing within the forums is that Joe and the other devs, while working hard, are frequently apologizing for lack of communication and/or lack of pointing out certain issues and shortcomings on the main site. Guys, you are running a business now -- and the most important part of a business is to keep your customer informed. The way I see it, while I pay $250 for a good product, support and adequate information is part of that product. While I understand that you are all working tirelessly to make Virtualmin the best it can be, claiming "I was too busy to mention lack of x86_64 support" (as an illustration) doesn't really cut it, especially when you customers have to find that out the hard way. I know you're all busy, so let me suggest a magic word: WIKI!
I assume the current version available is EA2, right? There doesn't seem to be anything clearly identifying it as such. Since there is much talk about EA2, EA3, etc on the forums, it would help being able to identify versions easier.
There are a number of problems in the script installers (for example, the phpBB2.1.6 installer is outdated, points to a download location that 404s, as the application has gone through 2 revisions since EA1; other scripts require 'magic quotes' to be on, but the default appears to be off, so the script won't install... etc)
Is there an API for writing an installation script?
There's more, but I'll save that for a separate post - regardless, Virtualmin shows a tremendous amount of promise, and I want to support its development as much as I can.
