Mautic for Agencies

Which is the Best Way to Run Mautic for Agencies?

Every so often I get requests to deploy multi-tenant Mautic setups, those requests are usually from a Marketing agency that needs to run multiple Mautic instances for their customers or their internal usage, However, multi-tenancy is very often a misunderstood and misused concept.

Multi-tenancy is an architectural approach enabling a single instance of an application to be used by multiple organizations or users, the tenants. In multi-tenant apps, there is just one code base for everyone and the separation between clients is done in that single codebase and sustained by the database.

On the other hand, Multi-instance, what I call “Replication” provides each organization with its own codebase.

Let’s analyze in detail these 2 options and find out which is the best way to run Mautic for an Agency.

I usually do these tutorials for Ubuntu, however, Debian is having a surge in popularity and for good reasons, in fact, in production, I am switching from Ubuntu to Debian, so I thought it was time to add Debian 12 to the Mautic installation tutorials…

Debian has been flourishing lately, some key changes in their view of the world and changes in what is acceptable in a FOSS OS are bringing, a much needed, breath of fresh air.

So, if you don’t need to support the latest hardware, and you enjoy reliability and stability, give Debian a spin for your next Mautic 5 installation, you won’t regret it!
