Notes on test migration to my Debian development server (practice only, I'm not saying we MUST use Debian. Flame OFF.)

Server was Debian unstable, about 3 weeks out of date as of Feb. 12, 2006.

  1. Add the hostnames to my oddones DNS
  2. Put the twiki2 and html directories in /home/
  3. Merge the httpd.conf VirtualHost sections into my existing httpd.conf (with changes for oddones hostnames and host IP)
  4. Test - missing libraries (perl diff stuff)
  5. apt-get install libalgorithm-diff-perl libtext-diff-perl (the two TWiki dependencies not installed on that system)
  6. Test - viewable but .htaccess for editing broken.
  7. chown -R www-data:www-data /home/
  8. Test - appears to be working, I made one random edit with my username to confirm.

Note: Bruce Dawson commented: I'm a bit concerned... there was some data missing on the WebChanges page. I'm not sure why it would be missing, or how it became missing, but there are a lot of changes missing on the page. We should probably do a more thorough analysis of the site though. Especially with the plug ins (maybe some more perl modules are needed). I just didn't have time.
