The osgeo6 VM is a Debian virtual machine minimally administered by SAC, hosted on SAC_Service_Status#osgeo6 (see also Hardware plan 2014) at OSU OSL and used for hosting project web sites and some related services.

The VM is reachable by ssh at osgeo6.osgeo.osuosl.org. Anyone in the https://www.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/auth/ldap_shell.py has ssh access, and anyone in this group can add new people via the link. Sudo access can be provided by existing sudoer's by adding folks to the sudoers group in /etc/group, though it is normal practice to try and only extend sudo access to one user per project.

This VM hosts several project critical resources (projects web sites primarily; it is the successor of the ProjectsVM put into service in 2015). It is a shared environment and it is important that folks making changes on the system be aware of the impact they might have on other hosted services. Apache changes should be made carefully and needfully. Think about security!
