Continuing the discussion from
Tiki Wiki Module Upgrade:
I have Tikiwiki 12.6LTS installed on a shared webhost and am about to upgrade to V15.0LTS as Softaculous says it is available. Just had to change my php options to allow INTL extensions.
I have been experimenting with Bitnami and 14.x works like a breeze on Windows and Linux Mint 17.3. Very easy to try out the new features. Also easy to run co-installs of MOODLE and TikiWiki on the ruby stack.
I am planning to provide my Academy with a suite including TikiWiki, MOODLE, and openSIS. Things are looking promising and I have to check out the cloudhosting options. The Academy is run by volunteers as a non-profit on a minimal budget so I have to look at keeping hosting costs low.
This is my first post so please advise if I should be posting some of this content elsewhere.
In this case, you can try Google Compute Engine or Amazon Web Services. In the case of Google Compute Engine, you can get an instance with 1.7GB memory and 30GB hard drive for little less than $15, which should be enough.
If you expect a lot of traffic, you can get an instance with 3.75GB memory and the same disk space for little more than $25. You can go and check out the Bitnami Launchpad for Google Cloud Engine, which is free and won't require spending anything more than the cost of the instance usage. Note that if you launch the LAMP stack, you will be able to install modules on top of it with the applications you specified (with the exception of OpenSIS).
Let us know if you have any additional question or concern.
