hi

i was wondering about how sentora works and what possible upgrade could be made

[hosted sites]
would it be possible to change how sites are currently hosted in what i assume is a jail to containers

a few container options listed here

as i understand it it would add layer of security to each site and even make sites a little more customizable by being able to say change the php version, mysql version,mongodb, etc on the fly

[users(related to the above)]
if sentora moved to a container system then when accounts are created a account on the system could be created thus giving clients access to their container so say they wanted to install git to there container(could also be done on the fly in the above example) but this way they could run say a python program on there site not being able to be accessed by others



what are everyone's thoughts on this is it realistic or would it be a pipe dream would it add to security or lessen it is it even possible

It would be intersting to use for example each user in a docker or LXC environnement. BUT this would require a complicated setup and would mean each customer is almost in a VPS, no more shared hosting.

Also using docker is easy, but ensuring it's secure is a another story.

I've been more thinking about adding SSH access thru a docker container to isolate the environnement from the main setup & allow then users to access their space using SSH/SFTP but didn't test it enough.

For PHP the best & most battle tested solution remain php-fpm.

On this one I could say it's almost better that everyone was a VPS if anything just for Hardware migrations and security

I didn't think about it but adding SSH buy a Docker container or Linux container is an interesting option but one of the things that I I personally find to be a bit of a problem with the current version of sentora is that changing a website's PHP version is quite a hassle and an interesting idea would be to have an official Repository for the versions that anytime you set up a website you can choose the version you want and if each website was essentially its own container then one person PHP version could be 5.4 and the other person can 5.6
