This is Wikimedia Australia's page about it's technical infrastructure. It documents our webservers, email systems, and anything else. It's basically our equivalent of the WMF's Wikitech wiki.

We follow a similar documentation process to many projects on Toolforge, in that we put everything we can here on the wiki.

All technical issues are tracked on Wikimedia Phabricator, at phabricator:tag/wikimedia_australia.

Tech Group

The Tech Group is the group of WMAU members who are resonsible for managing the technical infrastructure, and currently comprises:

The group can be reached at tech-at-wikimedia.org.au.

Domain names

We have one domain name, wikimedia.org.au, registered with Domain Central Australia Pty. Ltd. The following subdomains exist (most are no longer in use):

  • comm.wikimedia.org.au
  • www.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to wikimedia.org.au
  • osiris.wikimedia.org.au
  • blog.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to wikimedia.org.au (with some posts redirected to their counterparts here; see phabricator:T185880 for details)
  • civicrm.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to CiviCRM
  • lists.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to wikimedia.org.au
  • mail.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to wikimedia.org.au
  • tech.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to wikimedia.org.au

Wikis

We have four wikis, this public one and one private one for the Committee, and two Noongarpedia wikis. All run on one web server, currently hosted at Linode.

We try to keep templates in sync between the two WMAU wikis, with the public wiki holding the primary versions. Export selected templates for use on another WMAU wiki.

PHP

Custom PHP config is in /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/99-wmau.ini and is currently:

upload_max_filesize = 50M
post_max_size = 50M

Backups

The following things are backed up by the system administrators to their local systems:

/usr/local/bin/wmau-backup.sh
/var/backups/wmau/*
/var/www/images/*
/var/www/mediawiki/LocalSettings*
/etc/apache2/sites-available/*
