if you're new to the team and haven't heard about the freebsd server
that we maintain for ~team users.
it's somewhat barebones, but has web- and mailservers that are up and
running, ready to serve php and static files from ~/public_html.
this is the process that i use to migrate user accounts:
~/.ssh/authorized_keys is copied over from tilde.team proper, meaning
you can ssh to bsd.tilde.team with the same keys that you use here.
there's also an inspircd node running there for the tilde.chat network,
so you can connect to localhost/6667 there as well.
i plan on using this list as a place to post updates and other info.
holler here if you need anything or have any package requests etc.
hello tilde friends!
i'm planning another move of the tilde.team vm (again, sorry) to a new
server that i'm renting at OVH. i'm not 100% sure what day i'll be doing
it, but it will need to happen before january 29 when the current
server lease expires.
i'm expecting the migration to go much smoother than before, as
everything now lives inside a vm that can easily be transferred as a
single-file backup archive, but it will still likely take a couple hours
since i'll need to first shut down the vm to ensure backup consistency,
then transfer it over. besides moving the vm itself, the ipv4 addresses
will also need to be transferred over to the new server and i'm not sure
how long that will take.
affected services will include:
- tilde.team shell accounts, email, websites
- tildeverse.org site and services
- tilde.zone (and pleroma)
- these mailing lists
(don't worry, pending mail will get delivered once we're back up)
the earliest i'll be doing this migration is this weekend and i'll send
a follow-up message to this thread and on irc before taking the vm down.
cheers and happy holidays!
