[GMG-Devel] MG + Rackspace Cloud Files

Hi All,

I know that there are some outstanding enhancement requests to move from
the older / deprecated python-cloudfiles Rackspace setup toward the
pyrax-based setup, but does anyone currently have a Rackspace cloudfiles
back end working with MediaGoblin?  If so, would you be willing to share
your configuration (excluding your API keys, of course)? 

I'm interested in setting it up for one of our instances. I've attempted
to set things up following the notes on the wiki, but have been
unsuccessful.

Thanks,

Jim

As a follow-up, I sorted-out the issue with my installation. I had set
the mediagoblin home directory to /var/lib/mediagoblin, and that's where
the media went when it was uploaded. I needed to adjust my nginx
configuration to point to that location.

As for the permissions issue, my approach was to create a "developer"
group and assign both the mediagoblin user and the www-data user to that
group, and then work through giving file read permissions and directory
execute permissions to that group. At least that's what I think I did. I
had to work through this several times, and even worked with ACLs, so
I'm just trying to work out a consistent, agreed-upon way of doing this.

[GMG-Devel] Problem configuring mediagoblin on a raspberry pi server.

Hello everyone,

Sorry for my english, i'm french (and I know, nobody is perfect).

I'm working on a community server using a raspberry pi computer (to be accurate, several raspberry pi) and offering to community members some services showing the importance using free solutions for private life protection.

As an alternative to youtube we chose, by the way, mediagoblin. SO I started to make it work on one of those servers (wheezy raspbian).

I followed all the steps described in http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/stable/siteadmin/deploying.html and everything worked fine.
I made my db, created an admin user but, when i'm trying to log on, i always have the same message :

403 Forbidden

CSRF cookie not present. This is most likely the result of a cookie blocker or somesuch.<br/>Make sure to permit the settings of cookies for this domain.

So, i tried to use the fix descrided here :

https://issues.mediagoblin.org/attachment/ticket/1006/csrf-path-fix.diff

But when i'm using it, mediagoblin seems to be broken. (it just says it's broken), and i dont know where to find a log file.

I'm quiet sure i did something wrong, but i dont know what. Do any of you awesome people have a clue about that ?

Thank you ^^

Regards

Cyd

[GMG-Devel] Media directory permissions

Hi All,

I seem to have repeated problems with directory permissions that I'd
like to get sorted out. I'm able to get a site instance up, can create
accounts, add media types, upload media, the media processes correctly,
but I am having issues with the media actually displaying. I get the
"blank inaccessible media placeholder", the scourge of media that can't
be loaded.  : /

From what I can tell, the media directory permissions and access are a
mix of configurations in mediagoblin_local.ini, paste_local.ini and my
nginx configuration + directory permissions, but I seem to be stuck -
not able to arrive at a workable solution even after multiple attempts.
I've even dug-in on ACLs.

I'd like to get this sorted out before the release so that we can
provide the proper documentation for new users.

People can help by sharing their example configs from the files listed
above (mg_local.ini, paste_local.ini, nginx configuration), and by
noting anything special that they had to do with regards to user:group
persmissions on the relevant directories and files.  If I've left
anything out that you think is relevant, please feel free to let me
know.

Thanks for your help, everyone!

Jim

[GMG-Devel] Gitorious->Savannah for the main repo

Hey all,

Since as probably everyone knows by now, gitorious.org is going
read-only, so we had to move our code.  We've now moved our git repo to
Savannah:

  https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/mediagoblin

We're only using the git repo there.  You can update your checkout's
origin like so:

  git remote set-url origin git://git.savannah.gnu.org/mediagoblin.git

Did you have commit access in the past?  Please register on savannah and
email me your username.  You can then switch like:

  git remote set-url origin
YOUR-USERNAME-HERE@...:/srv/git/mediagoblin.git 

This may not be permanent, but it's a solution for the meanwhile.  We
are very grateful to the Savannah team for hosting this for us
though... that's very valuable at the moment.

Now to figure out what to do about Trac, amirite? ;P

Thanks!  And thanks to Boris Bobrov for setting us up on Savannah.
 - Chris

[GMG-Devel] problems with pagination links

Hi I've setup a new mg install and I'm having issues with the pagination
links at the foot of the page. The links are missing the base url and
appear like this "http:///?page=2"

The cause of the problem may be that I've experimented a bit and tried
one of the alternative deployment methods suggested in the wiki using
uwsgi. https://wiki.mediagoblin.org/Deployment#uwsgi_with_configs

I am running the master branch of mg.

My new nginx config looks like this:
https://paste.debian.net/hidden/dd3b1471/

And I have setup a runit script that launches the uwsgi process
https://paste.debian.net/hidden/00fe4115/

Additionally I have another runit script that launches the celery process.

And actually all of this seems to be working quite well. I can create
new users, login, and upload media. In fact, the only issue so far seems
to be the pagination links at the foot of the page.

Can anyone offer me any suggestions for debugging this?
