MPU web servers with HTTP text entry boxes

As of September 2017 the MPU's affected web servers are in three categories:

ordershost
This will be going away with the old inventory system. The Tartarus equivalent is https only.
The LCFG slaves
There are currently 8 of these. Stephen has been looking at making LCFG work over https:
  • In normal use, switching the client to https just works.
  • Installs don't work, because they use LCFG servers called lcfg and lcfghost, which aren't in the server's certificate. To fix this we need subject alternate name support in lcfg-x509 - see Bug:1010.
  • During the install process some scripts call rdxprof, but rdxprof doesn't have a default URL to fetch. It would be better if, when not given a specific URL to fetch, it was able to fall back to the contents of client.url.
The computing.help hosts
There are currently 5 of these. At present they're designed to be used mainly via http. The problem is the "Search" box. Alastair will look at this problem.
