Servers at OSL
Open Source Labs - 4 physical machines containing x virtual machines.
Logging into VMS
Note this does not apply to osgeo4 and osgeo7 lxd hosts. Refer to those sections for instructions on logging in. If VM hanging, see OSL for how to open a ticket with OSUOSL's support.
All SAC administrators have LDAP auth to the OSL Virtual Machines.
To ssh into a server using your LDAP account, you can do the following replacing your_osgeo_login with your OSGeo login and vmname with the vm name of the server at OSL.
When prompted for password, use your OSGeo Login password.
SAC:Primary Administrators also have ssh key access in case LDAP is down and that will also apply to the physical machines. Worst case scenario use the information on Open Source Labs to file a ticket (SAC members only). Direct connection to virtual machines is by appending it's vm alias to .osgeo.osuosl.org.
- Live Status via Munin
Server added June 2018. Intended to replace osgeo3 and old osgeo4 (before reformat). Configuration Details
Running LXD 3 snap based container management -- currently at LXD version 3.16
Accessing osgeo7 containers via ssh
Only the download.osgeo.org is directly exposed ssh via port 22. To access the other containers, you can tunnel thru download.osgeo.org -- You will need an ssh key on download already to do so. If you do not already have a key installed, put in a SAC Ticket Request
A convenient block to add to your own `.ssh/config` file follows:
Host osgeo7-* ProxyCommand ssh email@example.com -W $(sed -e "s/^osgeo7-//;s/$/.lxd/" <<< "%h"):%p
With the above in place, you can connect to any container using:
Services currently on:
Container Name: download
This is new home of download.osgeo.org, it's a debian 9 container (now locked down to only allow ssh key access / ldap auth) for ssh. It is running nginx instead of apache that the old ran. It has webdav with single local htaccess account geotools for geotools bot use.
Container Name: wordpress
Moved 2019-09-03 from web18a.osgeo.osuosl.org to osgeo7 wordpress container
Note this is a replica of web18a VM server provided by OSUOSL
Secure (LDAP ) ldap.osgeo.org
This used to be housed on osgeo3, and was moved 2019-09-14 to osgeo7 as old-wiki container.
Container Name: old-wiki
old wiki container -- used for wiki service (it is an lxd2pc created image of wiki.osgeo.osuosl.org VM that was on osgeo3)
See OSGeo Wiki
Container Name: nextcloud-ubuntu, collabora (for document/view/editing)
Collabora - Ubuntu 18.04 LXD container for LibreOffice/MS Office online document editor currently used exclusively by nextcloud.osgeo.org. Setup detailed in Nextcloud setup.
- nginx - proxy that routes all http/https traffick for the other containers (can only be accessed via osgeo7 host)
Container Name: dronie-server
Container Name: old-projects
-- this is the old projects.osgeo.osuosl.org migrated from osgeo4 as an lxd container, so more or less the same as it was before, with the exception that all the websites are now proxied thru the nginx container. Websites like on it are community-review.foss4g.org and spatialreference.org
To access you need to go thru download.osgeo.org -> old-projects
old-adhoc -- this is the old adhoc.osgeo.osuosl.org migrated as an lxd container. Used by osgeo-live for there test docs and by grass for earthquake, and mapserver for demo
Adhoc adhoc.osgeo.org 2019-05-08 THIS VM has been migrated to osgeo7 as an LXD container old-adhoc
- VM used for projects for various adhoc purposes. Risks to system stability that would be unacceptable on the Projects VM may be ok here.
- See AdhocVM for full details, and some notes on services running here.
- eg http://adhoc.osgeo.osuosl.org/livedvd/docs/en/quickstart/
- old-web --- the old web.osgeo.osuosl.org (was on osgeo3) currently only housing https://id.osgeo.org/ for LDAP management. The rest are planned to be moved here
See Osgeo6 for full details
- Backup now runs on dedicated hardware
- Provides Rsync backups of download.osgeo.org
- Provides Bacula backups of various VMs.
- See SAC:Backups for details.
osgeo4 is a real server managed by OSUOSL - can be access via ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -p 2222 (only people with their access keys installed can log in and doesn't allow password access) - password for tech_dev is in the secure container (on osgeo7) / access folder.
In August 2019 the server had new power supply put in and replacement disks. It was reformatted with Ubuntu 18.04.3 to serve as secondary LXD host to osgeo7 zfsutils-linux was installed so lxd can use zfs for storage.
sshing into osgeo4 containers
Note that all the containers are closed off from direct ssh access except for the hop.osgeo4.osgeo.org. To access the other containers, you need to hop through hop. hop container has port 22 open but requires ssh access so users who’ve been granted rights can hop thru it to other containers using hop.osgeo4.osgeo.org as name.
A convenient block to add to your own .ssh/config file follows
Host osgeo4-* ProxyCommand ssh email@example.com -W $(sed -e "s/^osgeo4-//;s/$/.lxd/" <<< "%h"):%p IdentityFile "path/to/your/private/key"
Then to access say the wordpress-dev container, you'd do the below where your_id could be your osgeo id or a local account on that container

Nightly backups of osgeo7 containers (secure, nextcloud) will be here and named <container>-backup and be kept in a stopped state.
Services currently on:
Container Name: hop - this is the only container with direct ssh access via ssh hop.osgeo4.osgeo.org. To get to other containers, you need to hop thru this one. Requires ssh key access
Container Name: osgeo4-nginx ->> all web traffick from other containers on osgeo4 get proxied thru here
Container Name: old-wiki-dev - used primarily for experimenting with changes to wiki.osgeo.org like testing out OS and softwere upgrade etc before appying to wiki.osgeo.org. - https://dev.wiki.osgeo.org
osgeo3 is a real server managed by OSUOSL and running a virtualization solution (ganeti+kvm) to provide Virtual Machines which are the ones SAC can access and manage. SAC can _not_ access osgeo3 directly, but has to contact OSUOSL for that.
Each of the sections below represent a Virtual Machine and describes which services are running on it, and by which name they are reachable.
- See TracsvnVM for full details, and some notes on services running here
* Drupal instances for the main OSGeo web site and projects like MapGuide and FDO are hosted here (??). DEFUNCT- moved to wordpress on osgeo7 wordpress container
- Virtual Hosts (on same server)
- LDAP Python Admin Scripts in /usr/lib/cgi-bin - accessed via https://id.osgeo.org (this current reside on osgeo7 lxd container called old-web)
