apply to tags in the sitenotice?

Re: Fwd: Load balancing web servers and multimedia content

Jeremy,

The wiki family files to which you linked are very interesting and if I go
the route of a wiki family, I'd do a very scaled down and simpler version
of that, as I only have five very similar wikis (they're essentially just
different language versions of the same thing, though their content is
managed by different groups of editors, and not by me). I'd seen the files
at https://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/ previously, so I had a rough idea of
that approach.

As for your suggestions about the uploaded files, I should first reiterate
that currently I have a single storage host and that is my primary concern.
Using rsync for backups is fine, but not to keep multiple production
storage hosts synchronized. Based on some more reading today, I think it
would take moving to a clustered filesystem such as GFS2
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GFS2>. I am curious though about the server
architecture and what the MediaWiki configuration would be to use the file
servers and image scalers shown in this diagram
<http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d8/Wikimedia-servers-2010-12-28.svg>
.

Load balancing web servers and multimedia content

Hi all,

Currently I have five wikis with the largest one being about 35k articles
(109k pages) and pretty heavily trafficked. My basic server architecture is
four web servers behind a load balancer and with a single NFS server that
shares out a directory that contains the upload directory content for each
of the five wikis, e.g. /wiki/wiki1, /wiki/wiki2, etc. (There are also
MySQL and Memcached servers but they are not relevant to this discussion.)
Each web server mounts /wiki in one location, say /var/www/images and each
of the five MediaWiki instances on the server has its images subdirectory
as a symlink to its  corresponding subdirectory under the mount, e.g.
/var/www/images/wiki2.

Obviously the NFS server is a single point of failure but I've yet to come
up with a good alternative shared-filesystem architecture that doesn't
require an expensive license like SNFS.

Finally, I'm considering moving the whole shebang to AWS but using S3
directly on the web servers doesn't seem viable in this architecture.

So I'm wondering how others are approaching the design of load balancing
(multiple instances of) MediaWiki across multiple web servers while
maintaining a single source for each wikis upload directory content. I'm
willing to COMPLETELY reevaluate my wiki server architecture as long as
it's fast and highly available, so all suggestions are welcome!

Justin

Off topic: Wiki spammer is using spoofed IP addresses???

I am surprised to see that a spammer is spoofing his IP address.  I got some spam from 200.90.74.226 - "226" is
out of range for IPs and so isn't even a valid IP address.  I confirmed that the number is not a wiki username
and the apache log shows the same IP.  It appears maybe the spammer's script has a bug and not range-checking
the generated numbers which made it obvious that the IP is spoofed; otherwise I would have never noticed.

I thought IP spoofing was a fairly sophisticated tactic and didn't expect to see a common wiki spammer using
it, or am I wrong?  I'm also surprised apache even allowed the connection, much less the Amazon AWS
firewall.  Am I missing something?

I need to automate and centralise all this. The need is for thousands 
of specialized/private wikis. Installation is just a part of a 
comprehensive management.
Thank you.

synchronizing two MW servers

I have 2 application servers behind a load-balancer that both point to
a 3rd server where the database lives.  I'm curious if there are any
best practices around keeping the two MediaWiki servers synchronized?

I found Extension:WikiSync
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiSync) but it doesn't look
like it's still developed.

I assume Wikimedia does this now, anyone know how?

Thanks
Bill

Re: script for SQLite installation

do you have any current test setups running with a mysql or any mysql
derivative? reason im asking is you can easily do then an sql dump of the
database and you have all your queries etc in the dump file. Or even better
use mysql workbench to reverse engineer the db and get it in chart form.

Re: script for SQLite installation

Is there any reason you can't use the pre-existing install methods?
