As of 2019-04-24 the ssh of the main host (the physical server) is 2222 and there is only one non-root account on it and can only be accessed via key access. At this time only wildintellect, strk, robe, martin, pramsey and jef have their keys installed

So to SSN - ssh tech_dev@osgeo7.osgeo.osuosl.org -p 2222


 DONE: Installed 18.04.1 on the Samsung 512GB MZVKW512HMJP (whole drive), and only installed OpenSSH (
    • ZFS DONE
      • It's a little complicated to get the root of the OS on ZFS, simplest way seems to be to install to another drive then copy over -WE DECIDED NOT TO DO THIS. OS is not installed on ZFS (on SAMSUNG regular ext4? partition). But created an LXD ZFS pool that takes up the other disks.
    • DONE Note we went with simple single ZFS pool RAID 10 takes up the remaining disks (Non-SAMSUNG). OS and LXD install on SAMSUNG
    • LXC/LXD - storage options we'll go with zfs (need to decide how big of storage),
      • also the fact btrfs allows going back to older snapshot, does zfs have a comparable feature, or might we consider having two storage containers, one zfs and one btrfs)
      • we'll have containers dedicated to databases one for user databases, one for system stuff like ldap, gitea, trac?




LXD based containers:

  • Downloads [IN PROGRESS]
  • Wiki [Still to be done]
  • Webextra (Foss4g Archives)
  • Secure (LDAP) (for starters make LDIF schema backup of existing, add schema for ssh keys, some account to test, leave out personal identifying info for now)
  • NextCloud (for board members) [DONE - now used by more than just board members]
  • Drone [DONE]
  • NGINX [DONE] - used to proxy traffic from drone, nextcloud, and eventually others
