Production Setup: Webserver
Webservers are the basic building block of the site. They run most of the interactions of the site and are the majority of the servers that we have.
Emphasis on CPU and RAM. We don't need disk.
Current production setup steps:
- Get slice for new webserver
- SSH in as root with given password, change root's password.
Setup DW account.
adduser dw echo "dw ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL" >> /etc/sudoers
Install base packages, still as root, and do a system update. This will take a little bit to run, so get some coffee real fast.
apt-get update apt-get install vim-perl screen mercurial subversion apt-get dist-upgrade
Now let's get the DW user setup.
su - dw echo -e "\nsource ~/.dwrc" >> .bashrc echo -e 'export LJHOME="/home/dw/current"' > ~/.dwrc exit
Now we log back into the DW user to continue (this sets up $LJHOME).
su - dw mkdir production ln -s production/ current cd $LJHOME wget http://hg.dwscoalition.org/dw-free/raw-file/tip/bin/bootstrap.pl perl bootstrap.pl
This will also run for a while. It should say something about starting at the beginning, and then go bouncing along its merry way as it starts checking things out. Good times will be had by all.
Fix the hg repository, need to figure out why this is necessary.
cd cvs/dw-free hg update -C tip cd $LJHOME bin/cvsreport.pl -s bin/cvsreport.pl -s
Now let's get a list of modules to install, or try:
for i in `bin/checkconfig.pl --only=modules --needed-debs`; \ do sudo apt-get -qq install $i; \ done
Now let's see what modules didn't get installed for some reason:
bin/checkconfig.pl --only=modules --needed-debs
If there are any, those need to be installed manually.
