Notes on the Informatics Ventures Web Sites

Currently just a dumping ground of things

The commercialisation web server (currently dunkvm) responds to a few domains, the main one being informatics-ventures.com, but look in /disk/dunk1/httpd/conf/commweb.conf to see. Most of it is in Drupal, setup by Duncan Davidson who's now left.

A regular event is the EIE event, and each year this is likely to roll over eg eie13.com to eie14.com. eg see RT https://rt4.inf.ed.ac.uk/Ticket/Display.html?id=61653

From that basically the steps to create a new eie14 site.

* create a new mysql eie14 database with:
mysqladmin create eie14

* take a copy of the previous eie13 database with:
mysqldump eie13 | mysql eie14

* create a new user and password for drupal to access that site with:
create user and password
  GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER,
  CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES ON eie14.*
  TO 'eie14'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'passwordxxx';

* copy /disk/dunk1/httpd/html/main/sites/www.eie13.com to the name of the URL
you want, in this case "www.eie14.com"

* edit settings.php in that directory to point at the new eie14 database with
that username and passwd eg
$db_url['default'] =
'mysql://eie14:passwordxxx@%3A%2Fdisk%2Fdunk1%2Fmysql%2Fmysql.sock/eie14';

* edit /disk/dunk1/httpd/conf/commweb.conf appropriately

Obviously I've missed out some details, but that's the basics for now.
