Description of current layout and installed software

Notes from Shawn on our PEER1 system:

  • OS Version: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4)
  • For most elements of system i tried to stay with the default redhat locations and red hat el 4 rpms installed from peer 1's up2date repository. Reasoning, the servers are updated automatically against this repository and supported by PEER1 - reduce sysadmin load on keeping packages updated by using packages not available through PEER1 repository

Installed software using up2date

  • apache - httpd-2.0.52-28.ent.i386
  • postfix - postfix-2.2.10-1.RHEL4.2.i386
  • php - php-4.3.9-3.22PIDH.i386
  • python - python-2.3.4-14.3.i386
  • subversion - subversion-1.1.4-2.ent.i386

IP tables custom

rules must be written here or won't exist when system updated


System login and maintenance procedures

-- Note: if change root password must let PEER1 know the new password for backup/restore and tickets. i would prefer no root ssh login but, PEER1 needs root access.

Subversion maintanence

  • subversion may lock if user ctl-c during checkout or checkout is interupted with an apache restart
  • Need policy on who to contact and who can run 'svnadmin recover' as

priviledged access is needed (may need to stop/start apache to drop requests to repository before recover)

Authorization and authentication for OSGeo services

Backups (offsite, live, and otherwise)

  • PEER1 is doing daily tape backup of entire system

Other backups

  • MySQL being backed up every 2 hours with MySQL-zrm

* rsync backups, to /home/back then rsynced daily to other server ( /etc/ (daily) /var/www/html (daily) /var/lib/mailman (every 3 hours)

         /var/lib/msql-zrm (every 3 hours)
  • subversion backups

-via svnadmin dump to /home/back/svn_dump/ (every 3 hours)

  • trac backups

-via trac-admin hotcopy to /home/back/trac_copy/ (every 3 hours)
