Server Software

The web sites are currently hosted on a pair of computers. The first provides web services via Apache and PHP and the second handles the databases via Firebird. The second machine is only accessible internally, so all database access is via the web server, and most of the on site services have been moved to the bitweaver content management framework, which provides user authentication and security. Apache has been replaced by Nginx to improve performance so the notes are a little out of cate.

The site is currently running on latest software builds via the SUSE update service. Updates are applied manually once they have been checked on the backup system, so some of the above versions may be out of sync with the setup reported by SUSE 11.3 today.
