It would be nice to see a dotcms one click installer in my.webfaction.com control panel.

I have 2 clients that would be very interested. One is already using dotCMS and does not like the hosting options currently available and the other is not on dotCMS because affordable hosting is not really available for smaller operations.

It is a very common question on our mailing list and IRC chan. Having another hosting option to send them to would be great not only for you guys but dotCMS as well.

If there is enough demand from our customers for DotCMS, we'll certainly consider adding an installer for it to our control panel.

This is only the third inquiry I've seen for it in as many years, so the demand isn't quite there yet :)

I don't have step-by-step instructions, but if you need to run it now, then you should be able to install it manually as a custom app.

Since dotcms is java based it can use quite a bit of machine memory. This would be one consideration for somebody hosting a dotcms site. I suppose if Webfaction were to create a one click installer, it would have to be configured conservatively.

And being Java based means we'd also have to commit to providing Java on all servers and to providing technical support for Java. Neither of which we do now.

Taking those things into consideration, we'd have to get a lot of demand to warrant us doing this.

Thanks for even considering it. I think webfaction would be the go to host for people wanting a dotcms install if you ever do it.
