The Projects VM is a Debian virtual machine minimally administered by SAC, hosted on osgeo4 at OSU OSL and used for hosting project web sites and some related services.
The VM is reachable by ssh at projects.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 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.
Place to reach SAC members in case of troubles or quick questions:
- If you don't have an IRC client, you can use the IRC Web browser interface or Freenode's Webchat (if you are behind a restrictive firewall)
- Existing services hosted on the Projects VM
