First release of what I hope is a useful little tool for Pre- and Post-
Installation Joomla! v1.0
trouble-shooting. Joomla! Health, Installation and Security Audit (HISA)Overview:
Following the success of WebSmurfs' "Joomla! Diagnostic Tool" it got me thinking and I figured that many of the Forum questions come from basic Web-Serving environment questions and many of the issues come from mis-configured PHP instances, therefore maybe some basic Post- (and Pre-)
Installation tools might help.
Hence, HISA was kind of born (well with my coding capabilities, more like threw itself on the keyboard and committed hari-kari!)
A very simple hack of the Web-Installer (index.php, the nice bits of code are original core team, the nasty bits are mine. Hope you guys don't mind me butchering your code!)
to provide a self-contained, all-in-one tool script providing the following functionality;
* Pre-Installation Environment Audit
* Existing Installation Enviromment Audit
* Minimal Environmental Security Auditing
Normal Web-Installer checks are performed including additional basic Host, Web-Server, PHP, MySQL and Joomla! environmental information is displayed.Messaging Provisions: Warning
: Something needs looking at and resolving. Information
: Needs to be considered, but not essential.
Advisory : Suggestion, recommendation or assistance. Good
: Meets Joomla! Installation criteria.Installation Instructions: Post- Joomla! installation
: Simply FTP to the Top-Level (same) directory of your Joomla! installation and run from a Web-Browser. Pre- Joomla! Installation
: Simply FTP to the Top-Level (same) directory where you intend to install Joomla! and run from a Web-Browser.Notes:Printing page breaks have been included to allow for "neat" printing, so end-users can use this to document much of their installation for later reference or for the more Tech Savvy of clients, for those that are developing onbehalf of others.
