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.
The Tech Group is the group of WMAU members who are resonsible for managing the technical infrastructure, and currently comprises:
- Sam Wilson (Committee member)
- Steven Crossin (Committee member)
- Robert Myers (Committee member)
- Michael Billington (not a Committee member, but used to be)
The group can be reached at techwikimedia.org.au.
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):
- www.wikimedia.org.au → redirects to 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
Email accounts and addresses
- See also Mailing lists.
All of our email is hosted with GSuite, and Committee members are given their own accounts of the form "firstname.lastnamewikimedia.org.au". Since we switched to GSUite for non-profits and these don't cost us anything, people keep these accounts after they leave the Committee.
WMAU members who aren't on the Committee can ask for an email alias to be set up to forward email from firstname.lastnamewikimedia.org.au to their own email address. This is managed via the "Recipient address map" (in Apps > G Suite > Settings for Gmail > Advanced settings). Whenever this address map is modified, the list at comm:Tech is also updated.
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.
Custom PHP config is in
/etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/99-wmau.ini and is currently:
upload_max_filesize = 50M post_max_size = 50M
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/*
Public dumps of this wiki (XML export and uploaded files) are uploaded annually to the Internet Archive:
