Infrastructure of OSGeo System Administration Committee (SAC)

For emergency plans see: SAC:Admin and Troubleshooting

Servers at OSL

Open Source Labs - 4 physical machines containing x virtual machines.

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.

 ssh your_osgeo_login@vmname.osgeo.osuosl.org

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.

osgeo 7

New server just came in as of June 2018. Intended to replace osgeo3 and whatever left on osgeo4. Configuration Details

Container setup of all the osgeo7 servers is located in https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/sac/osgeo7/wiki/_pages

Running LXD 3 snap based container management -- currently at LXD version 3.12

Services currently on:


secure -- ldap.osgeo.org SAC:LDAP used for ldap service (a rebuild of old secure.osgeo.osuosl.org) now on Debian 9


Nextcloud - Ubuntu 18.04 LXD/nginx/postgresql 11 container for document sharing similar to dropbox/google drive - nextcloud-ubuntu.lxd - https://nextcloud.osgeo.org Nextcloud Setup

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

  • nginx.lxd - proxy that routes all http/https traffick for the other containers (can only be accessed via osgeo7 host)

Dronie Server

  • 1.0 server of drone.io runs in an LXD container details Dronie

Old Projects

  • old-projects -- this is the old projects.osgeo.osuosl.org migrated as a 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


  • 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
  • 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 does have webdav with single local htaccess account geotools for geotools bot use.

Old Projects

  • 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


  • Mail

See Osgeo6 for full details

Backup (osgeo5)

  • 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 tech_dev@osgeo4.osgeo.osuosl.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.

Work is in process to make this a secondary LXD host.

It's makeup is as follows:

Adhoc 2019-05-08 THIS VM has been migrated to osgeo7 as an LXD container old-adhoc

To access via ssh you should go thru download.osgeo.org -> old-adhoc.lxd It is accessible via https://adhoc.osgeo.org and http://adhoc.osgeo.osuosl.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 OSGeo Wiki


  • 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 web18a.osgeo.osuosl.org

See Infrastructure Transition Plan 2010#Final_Plan for full details. * Infrastructure Transition Plan 2010#osgeo3_.26_osgeo4 * Lots of config information in the Migration Documentation.


  • Template VM used when creating new VMs.
  • Not normally running - make a special request to OSL to start it up.


Cloud Hosted Servers and other external under SAC Control
