Upgrade develop.twiki.org Server, 2006

The develop.twiki.org server is on an aging entry level server, hosted by EV1Servers.net for $100/month (PeterThoeny is donating that to the twiki project for three years now)

We got a generous offer from Fastservers.net to host a server for free: JeffLink is offering an AMD Athlon 3000+, 80GB HD, 1GB RAM. Thank you very much for the very generous offer! We will place a "hosted by" logo on develop.twiki.org, and will mention it on the twiki.org home page.

Tasks & Status

Task Who Status
sync develop files SvenDowideit initial sync done, rinse&repeat
sync svn setup SvenDowideit initial sync done, rinse&repeat
apache setup for cgi and mod_svn SvenDowideit started (svn and cgi work, final touches waiting on dns)
dns changes for new server SvenDowideit initial email sent to ByteWorx
configure develop twiki co SvenDowideit  
set up sers for admining SvenDowideit  
linked logo on home page and bugs home SvenDowideit  
setup apache server with module for tracking oops processes (debug/status info on runaway processes) SvenDowideit  


Our infrastructure is as follows:

  • 1. twiki.org: Donated Sun V240, hosted for free by Fastmetrics, 2 SPARC processors, 4GB RAM, 2 mirrored 60 GB drives
  • 2. develop.twiki.org: Aging 1.6 GHz server, 512MB(?) RAM, hosted by EV1Servers.net for $100/month
    • being replaced by this new 3GHz Athlon with 1GB RAM
  • 3. tinderbox.twiki.org (pending) to test the latest TWiki with all Plugins

Our immediate need is new hardware for 2. develop.twiki.org because the current server is painfully slow, and also to ease my bank account. I have a potential sponsor for the tinderbox.

Please bring forward your feedback, needs, and offer to help.

It's hard to offer help without knowing what the plan is, but anything I can do to ease the transition from the current box, give me a shout.

Moved a few items over from EdinburghReleaseMeeting2006x03x20. There were no comments on the need to appoint secondary admins - I s'pose you're able to do with the admin load as is?

A way to improve pod doc quality: If we install the PerlDocPlugin on the new develop server we can test the pod documentation easily: Create a topic for every module that extracts the latest pod from the module. If we name the topics Pod-lib-TWiki-pm, Pod-lib-TWiki-Net-pm, etc it is easy to list the topics in an index page (possibly modify with CALC into a real tree). Hmm, should that go into the TestCases web?
