Mapping of assets
racktables.org domain is currently registered through GoDaddy, which also provides 2 free nameservers.
"racktables.org mail is handled by 10 mx.yandex.ru." Yandex Mail is a free email service, which allows for an own DNS domain. There is a single "devteam" mailbox configured in the domain, which is setup to forward all messages to every development team member.
FreeLists is a great free service without accompanying advertisements. The only drawback about it is that it is non-profit and can go down some day.
Bug tracker, wiki, demo host
Arnaud Launay is the administrator of a server, which currently runs this wiki, Mantis and the RackTables demo. To get SSH access there, be a team member and find someone who already has access.
SF download stats work for the downloads. Google analytics works for the content of racktables.org and demo.racktables.org.
SourceForge. SVN, racktables.org HTTP vhost, downloads and shell service.
Send an empty email with subject "who racktables-users" to email@example.com and you will get a list of all subscribers. Save it to the backup directory as "racktables-users.txt".
- Project page, "Project admin", "Features", "XML export": save the file into backup directory as "racktables_export.xml".
- Backup stuff accessible from SF SSH only:
ssh -t YOUR_SF_USERNAME,firstname.lastname@example.org create adminrepo --checkout svn svnadmin dump /svnroot/racktables | gzip > racktables-svn-dump.bin.gz adminrepo --discard svn tar czf racktables.org.tar.gz /home/project-web/racktables/htdocs/ sf-help | fgrep 'ssh -p' # Note the hostname and the port and copy the files from SF shell to your directory: scp -P 24006 YOUR_SF_USERNAME@shell4.sourceforge.net:~/racktables-svn-dump.bin.gz . scp -P 24006 YOUR_SF_USERNAME@shell4.sourceforge.net:~/racktables.org.tar.gz . # in SF shell again rm racktables-svn-dump.bin.gz racktables.org.tar.gz shutdown
Now the backup directory must have these files:
Wrap this stuff into a single archive file with a meaningful name and save it to a safe place:
tar cf RackTables-project-backup-`date +%Y%m%d`.tar ./racktables*
Bug tracker, wiki data
SSH into the host and create a new backup directory.
mkdir ~/RackTables-apps-backup cd ~/RackTables-apps-backup
Copy the applications into the backup directory. This is important because they contain uploaded files and configuration settings.
cp -r ~/www/bugs . cp -r ~/www/wiki .
Export the database for each application.
mysqldump -u <username> -p <dbname> > bugs.sql mysqldump -u <username> -p <dbname> > wiki.sql
Wrap it all up in a single archive file and save it to a safe place:
cd ~/ tar czf RackTables-apps-backup-`date +%Y%m%d`.tar.gz ./RackTables-apps-backup
