Manual update of git-deployed Agaric production site

For a project named (and with the repository and server user name) 'example'.

cd example
git pull

For the git pull to work your public key must be in /home/vlad/.ssh/authorized_keys on the test server ( You can get this value from /home/yourusername/.ssh/authorized_keys. (@Stefan can we in some way give people with access to simone access to use it as the vlad user automatically?)

Using PostgreSQL (psql) - getting past the immediate authentication failure

How in the world aren't there very clear instructions for getting started with PostgreSQL after apt-get install postgresql?

UPDATE: Doing this the right way

Read the documentation that Debian (and so Ubuntu) provide, typically in /usr/share/doc/<package-name>

The documentation we need can be read with:
vi /usr/share/doc/postgresql-8.4/README.Debian.gz

2. Get a shell for the database superuser 'postgres'. If your system
has an active root user, use su:

Server blocking someone who should have access? Try etc/hosts.allow

Blocked and receiving an error "ssh: connect to host" "port 22: Connection refused", Stefan added the IP address where this was not working to the hosts allow file, and explained the system.

There's two relevant files: /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny

/etc/hosts.deny is updated by the denyhosts package based on attacks and suspicious behaviour. it can be overridden by /etc/hosts.allow

An entry consists of a service, such as ssh, and a number of IP addresses.

Add a kerberos user to a group

Access to Agaric test sites, issue tracking queues, and other admin tools are handled by kerberos.


Add users to groups here:

sudo vi /etc/apache2/groups

Make sure you refer to the user as the username you provided (should be lowercase) followed by @MAYFIRST.ORG (all of this must be in uppercase, so for project example with username example you would add a line like this:

example: example@MAYFIRST.ORG
