Reason I'm asking is that my understanding is you can't really split roles up between servers for the same domain. In other words, it's not really feasible to have one Cloudron server hosting the website for example.com and another Cloudron server hosting the mail for example.com. My understanding is that everything related to the domain needs to be handled on each server.
Out of interest, why would it not be feasible to split domains between hosting and email? We do this without any problems. On the servers hosting the apps either outbound mail is set to relay via the server handling email or, if the app manages its own email settings, these are set to use the SMTP on the server handling email for the domain.
I may have misunderstood but I think this post is why I was under that impression that the Cloudron domains emails should be on the same server as the apps for that same domain.
Yeah, kind of being ignored a little bit. lol
AFAICS, JMAP does not seem to bring such great enhancements such as to shake the email servers industry, yet. That is very likely why there's seems to be not so much enthusiasm about this protocol. IMHO
I'm just thinking digitally here, but most fonts, Wordpress themes and plugins (and other paid themes and plugins), etc. are for one installation/project.
As you mention it, first fonts are not in the same category as Wordpress which carries a General Public License (GPL) which carries the obligation to ALL themes and plugins to be produce and distributed under the exact same condition, meaning they must be GPL as well.
Limiting the number of instance installation in the case of themes or plugins for Wordpress, or any FOSS which comes with such license of freedom, is among the biggest SCAM going on in this sphere right now, as this is a violation of the GPL license which, among other things, stipulate that once you have a copy, you can freely copy and distribute it under the same license's terms. Hence, technically speaking, if a wp theme developer does limits you in the number of instances you can install, then he's breaking the license himself which they still pretend to be GPL which is an absolute non-sense.
Clourdon is NOT GPL, nor even open source if I'm not mistaken, right now, even though most of the software part of the offer are. That's not a problem at all. simply because you do not absolutely need a Cloudron box to run any of the software offer which are coming with GPL. When one pays for either cPanel or Plesk the principle is the same, the prices are always PER INSTANCE, obviously, and that is even though they too offer GPL apps installation via their dashboard via Softaculous and the like.
@girish Correct. In my case they're almost all managed by Cloudron with some exceptions like extra records needed by Mailjet for example, but yeah the vast majority of the DNS records between all the domains I manage are Cloudron-related.
Managing of ssl certificates without intervention and containerization were what got me into it, but great documentation, ease of packaging, support, and a thriving community is what keeps me here. Cloudron rocks.
We haven't worked out the details around subscription for multihost, however you still can just go ahead as you mentioned. Anyways you can migrate apps from one Cloudron to another, mostly this works well as long as the usernames are consistent (we try to setup most apps to use the username as the unique identifier)
