Openacs.org and cvs.openacs.org are moved to the new servers!

Thanks to Carl Blesius, Michael Steigman, Deds Castillo, and Patrick Giagnocavo from zill.net for their work in setting up the new hardware.

Thanks for Furfly for many years of service hosting!

I'm getting an error installing from the repository. Its using the https://openacs.org/repository/5.3/ url which seems to be returning a "not found". Has this been migrated to the new server?

Yes the repository files should have be moved over. Thanks for letting us know, I'll check it out.

There are still a few loose ends that we will be fixing over the next few days. I was just doing some testing and discovered that openacs.de is pointing to the old server. Malte is listed as admin and needs to point it to the new IP: 206.192.23.163 (hope you are reading Malte). Are there any other openacs.xx tlds that need to be updated?

Heads up: I'm going to be taking cvs.openacs.org down briefly at 11 EDT tonight to make a change to the VM config. It should only be down for a few minutes.

Any news on this, it still doesn't appear to be working?

Sorry to be the bearer of more bad tidings but since the change over it appears that the reply-to address on the forum notifications is wrong e.g.

Reply-To: openacs.orgm <ailer mailto:notification-1630948-2960@openacs.org>

This is the Reply-To (with some spam bot protection) that I get from this message:

Reply-To: openacs.org mailer <notification-1631343-2960[at]openacs[dot]org>

What is the problem? Can you clarify?

Apologies Carl

You are correct. When I view the mail source the Reply-To looks correct but my MUA (Evolution) is displaying it in the mangled form I mentioned and only on messages since the server move. When I look at the message source on the mail server itself there is a subtle difference between the messages before and after the move:

Before: Reply-To: "openacs.org mailer" <mailto:notification-1605297-2960@openacs...

After: Reply-To: openacs.org mailer <mailto:notification-1631369-2960@openacs...

Obviously Evolution doesn't like the lack of quotes.

Hi all,

Thanks to everyone for the efforts (and the hosting!).

Here's my experience report:

I can't seem to access the repository (https://openacs.org/repository) or the web cvs browswer (http://cvs.openacs.org/) or cvs via pserver (cvs -z9 -d :pserver:mailto:anonymous@cvs.openacs.org:/cvsroot co openacs-4).

cvs via ssh works a treat though.

And the server is nice and fast!

Cheers,

Mark.

We didn't forget about this!

The cvs browser was not setup due to configuration issues on the cvs server. I am looking into it.

The repository was gone because we forgot to install cvs to use when building the repository nightly.

I am fixing that now also.

Repository is fixed. It should be rebuilt nightly now.

pserver access is still not working. is there currently another way of accessing the cvs repository anonymously?

Wow, much faster! Well done everyone.

Pserver access to cvs is working now.

I added the quotes. I am not sure what happened when we moved the code over. It should be working ok now.

It is indeed.

Thanks Dave & Co for all your effort with this move.

I am happy to hear it is faster despite us taking a hit for running both cvs and www in virtual machines.
