I can setup ngnix and php in the poddery server. Should it be just or


Pirate Praveen Sat 26 Oct 2013 9:50AM, as we have been using that domain for some time and if old links can work, it would be a plus.


Manu Krishnan T V Sat 26 Oct 2013 10:57AM

I'll go ahead with that then.

I have recovered all the pages in namespaces except "User".

Remaining tasks
1. Comb through user table. This is cumbersome because first we need to import 17 gb sql dump which alone takes so much time. Then we need to comb through user table to find non-spam ones. I have told before that we need to consider whether to retain users. Hrishi said he can help, but he became busy with resigning from his job at Bangalore and then he went to Trivandrum. So couldn't contact with him properly.

  1. Comb through spam images. This I believe I can do, but only after December 6. I had already done this once, but a sudden computer crash made me format my hard disk and I forgot to take backup of /var/www folder.

Please go through the site I gave and see if it is ok. If so, we can take the wiki up with that and do the two remaining tasks afterwards. However, we need to fix how to prevent this from happening in future. We had all common anti-spam extensions activated, like SpamBlacklist etc. We need to discuss more security measures.

In my opinion, if we want the wiki ASAP, let us take it up with what all we have in hand and fix the issues on the run.

Sorry for the delay. Am having university exams.

I have contacted Anivar for updating the DNS records to point to the poddery server. Once that's done, I can configure the web server part and we could get the Wiki up.

@balasankarchelamat , we can add two factor authentication, at least in the beginning, we could turn it off for short times later to see if it holds. I have found this option in You will get a code and 100 keys matching that code, you'll be asked to enter each code each time you login. You are supposed to take a print out or save the codes. It is a bit too much for a wiki, but if that is a choice between keeping the wiki running or shut, I'd choose to keep it running.

@manukrishnantv there is already one extension we may have to add paper codes option though.

@praveenarimbrathod @balasankarchelamat Anivar has updated the DNS records and so the domain is now pointing to I'll be creating a virtual host and redirecting it to a blank page. Let me know when the wiki data is ready.
