Guys, who has encountered the Bitrix script? I am interested in how this system works stably, how to install it on your hosting, and which one is better (easier to install) BitrixVM or BitrixEnv?


Which option to choose depends on personal preferences and the specifics of the tasks being solved. So, for quick deployment in the hypervisor, 1C-Bitrix: Virtual Machine will be the most suitable. You only need to change the size of the disk. And for example, for installation on a dedicated server or for fine-tuning Linux OS parameters - 1C-Bitrix: Web environment.


BitrixVM is a ready—made image of the CentOS operating system, in which all the necessary software is installed for the operation of sites on 1C-Bitrix.
This image was prepared by the developers of 1C-Bitrix. The settings of such a server are optimized to work with this CMS.

The software set installed in BitrixVM can be installed on a "clean" server with CentOS 7 manually, using the BitrixEnv script (1C-Bitrix: Web Environment). Bitrix developers recommend this option for users who do not have the opportunity to use a ready-made image or they need fine-tuning of the configuration.
BitrixVM is incompatible with the ISPmanager control panel. Either the BitrixVM environment or the control panel can be installed on the server.

What is the difference between BitrixVM and BitrixEnv.
BitrixVM is a ready—made image for virtualization systems. You just need to deploy it on a Cloud server. BitrixEnv is a shell script that raises a similar environment on an already ordered server. At the same time, the entire installation will have to be done manually. Therefore, we recommend using BitrixVM.
When preparing BitrixVM for work, you may encounter the problem of installing the latest version of PHP on BitrixVM.
