Joomla! Deployment Guide for Sun Storage 7000 Unified Storage Systems"

This guide is for installing and configuring the open source Joomla! Content Management System with Sun's Unified Storage systems. The scenario uses Sun Storage 7110 Unified Storage System (version 2009.Q2). The Sun servers in this setup run the OpenSolaris 2009.06 release and PHP, MySQL, and Apache web server from pkg.opensolaris.org.
