PROJECT: New servers
Several of us met at Computers and Things on March 18 to discuss how to proceed, and to get some work done.
Configured SLUUG.ORG web site on new server.
Copied over all the data.
Configured a redirect back to old systems for user pages for short-term.
Will redirect to users.sluug.org, which can remain in place after the full migration.
This will allow us to move the web site without having to move the users.
Need to determine how to do the mailing list sign-up pages.
Need to determine how to proceed with non-SLUUG sites we host.
Next step is to test the new site, before we point our production DNS
Make sure everything is there and working.
Make sure we copy over any updates from the old web site.
Make sure the redirect to user pages is working.
Make sure the SIG sites/pages work.
Get the mailing list sign-up pages to work.
Craig is working on email infrastructure.
We need some versa-rails to mount the servers.
Craig has a 1U UltraSparc with Solaris 10 to donate and install at Primary.
We could use a rackmount switch.
