[website] server change! (please test!)

Post by abma » 27 Oct 2014, 23:13

to fix some long-standing problems, the springrts.com server and the services assoicated with it (lobby.springrts.com / packages.springrts.com / buildbot.springrts.com / etc.etc.) will move to a new server.

these are some of the problems that will be fixed:
- "random" hangs of server
- directory listing is czech in springrts.com/dl/
- many dead/inactive accounts on the server ( -> improve security!)
- get rid of the private stuff which is running on the old server (-> simplify backup / future migrations / permissions)
- get rid of unused stuff (installed software / data / ...)

the currently planned date to change dns entries is 5.11 - 7.11.2014.

The os will be updated to Ubuntu 14.04. Because of this, it could take a bit until all services are working again.

The new server will have the ip 78.46.100.157.

http://test.springrts.com is already pointing to the new ip! all changes there will be overwritten when the migration is made.

to fully test, atm you have to edit /etc/hosts and add the needed dns entries!

if i missed some users/permissions, please poke me!

(forum of springrts.com & test.springrts.com seems to conflict with cookies, so don't get confused :)

Hint: add a maintenance file on the old server and redirect all traffic to it after DNS change to alert users who have DNS cached.

"enable proxy for http server" :-)

but yes, maybe the hint is better. proxy could lead to some weird problems.
