3-tier deployment architecture

Postby udecomey » Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:23 am


We have been developing and deploying Joomla in various companies and organization. Recently, we have been asked by a customer :

Can Joomla work in a 3-tier infrastructure with the database (MySQL) in Tier-3.

Would it be possible to deploy Joomla in this configuration where :
tier 1 - web server
tier 2 - application server
tier 3 - database server

Many thanks,

To the best of my knowledge, yes you can.. however dont know answer for "HOW".
Joomla is open source, and really powerful... i wonder if you may change it according yo your needs....

from you illustration:
Regarding the database thing, you may want to try out synchronizing the database under phpMyAdmin....
Basic working of joomla is that it fetches content (like articles. and what hyperlink they are on in a browser.. ) from database. The files of joomla core which are under your web directory are to call these stuff from database, (like your images will be under a directory, not database..)

The upcoming joomla version is Joomla 2.5 which is under heavy development
and you may want to discuss this over there if you deem so..
who knows this request of yours may become integral part of joomla....
