Actually, I had a GREAT thought this morning (note: I am NOT the one to
do this, as I don't have the expertise)
I use VMWare (alot). On VMWare's website there are hundreds of
"appliances" - basically a down-loadable (free) image of an OS
preconfigured for some particular purpose. Eg: an Ubuntu server w/
apache & postfix already installed and configured (configured as much as
it can be, w/o site specific info).
Thus my idea:
It would be *really nice* to have a VMWare appliance with Ubuntu (or
Fedora or both) with apache, postfix, and PLONE (with apache already
configured to use PLONE).
Question: how hard would this be? Ie. is there so much configuration
that it would be prohibitively difficult to create such an appliance?
PS: having it setup to use https would be REALLY nice, but getting
certificate information might be too much ask in a generic install.
Just thinking outside of the box...
