security risks... ( a bit OT )

Hi, Steve.

I use a lot of sites, like you: joomla, opencart, etc.
I have 2 security principals:
 - virtualization. I use FreeBSD "light" jails + vnet. Each CMS in own jail, e.g. joomla-jail with all sites written on joomla cms, opencart-jail and so on.
 - php pools. Each site in own pool with right access to sockets.
 One nginx instance per-jail.
