Hi Donald,

No, this is not an option! For both maintenance and security reasons,  
we strongly discourage running additional applications on the same  
(virtual) server. Particularly looking at Zikula, which is an  
application development framework, there are additional stability  

The effort in editing and maintaining the configuration files would  
probably outweigh the savings for hardware; a server with nice  
virtualization support is not *that* expensive. Also, even old servers  
run virtualization, just not as nicely.

- Gerd.
