I have a Joomla website with some custom development in PHP that has been easily backed up and restored (using Akeeba) from Hostgator to GoDaddy and back. All elements function fine when I do this restore. I wanted to take the performance leap to a VPS, so I fired up my first droplet and chose Virtualmin as my control panel product for creating my different virtual servers. I followed a guide that Digital Ocean has for setting up Virtualmin on Ubuntu 14.04.
Once set up I was able to restore one of my basic Joomla sites fine, but when I tried to restore my second site (which has some custom PHP development) I found some of the functions and renderings are not working correctly.
My question is what other variables, parameters, or apache modules do I need to install, set, enable for my Virtualmin instance to behave like a GoDaddy or HostGator platform from a functionality perspective?
As an example of the errors I encounter, I am seeing the following error in my Apache error log when I try to run one of the functions. This function has no problems on the two other hosting providers when restored the exact same way.

I am not a Linux noob, but I am not exactly well seasoned either. Any type of feedback on how I can finish building this virtualmin host so it can accept sites that were hosted fine on other providers would be great.
