OWW BioMicro Server Switch
This page is describes the updates that are taking place to move administration of the wiki from the Endy lab to the BioMicro center.
- Prepare the new machine
- Done. The new server at bmc-5.mit.edu is set up and ready to serve pages. It is running Mediawiki 1.4.10.
- Move openwetware.com to the new address to test the wiki. Change ANAME and CNAME to point to bmc-5.mit.edu
- Done... check out http://openwetware.com
- freeze the current wiki (no write access) and provide appropriate notice on the Main Page.
- copy the wiki and settings to the new machine:
- stop apache to make sure no updates are happening (just to be on the safe side)
- get the snapshot of the wiki folder and database dump:
- $ zip -r /mnt/bionet/homedirs/ilyas/bmc-dropbox/openwetware.zip /var/www/html/openwetware
- $ mysqldump -u wikiuser -p --opt wikidb > /mnt/bionet/homedirs/ilyas/bmc-dropbox/openwetware.sql
- start apache
- unfreeze wiki on the new machine
- move A/CNAMES of openwetware.org and openwetware.mit.edu to the new address
- Recent requests to MIT IS&T have taken several days to process. The yahoo addresses seem to update within minutes.
- clean up model... send link from model to the new site.
