This page is designed to keep track of the current infrastructure running the opensim project. If you have questions or suggestions, please use the Talk page.

Current Infrastructure


The wiki is currently Mediawiki 1.13.3. Mediawiki should be kept up to date, look for security updates once a month or so on this.

Search for Wiki

Search for the wiki is provided by MWSearch, which requires a seperate lucene process running. Lucene is a java program that generates a full text search engine for a set of data. It does this for media wiki by doing db dumps on a periodic basis. MWSearch is flakey, and some times needs to be whacked and restarted.

MWSearch lives in /var/www/lucene-search-2.1. You currently need to run ./build on a regular basis there because OAI extension is not yet correctly configured to do incremental updates.


We are currently running a patched mantis 1.1.1. It has patches added for additional fields for patch flow (the green states), and to write to a named pipe in /var/run/mantis/mantis-notify with bug change information. This named pipe is read by the osmantis bot. Mantis has not been upgraded in a while because 1.2.x looks like it's on the near horizon, and it would be better to update to that if possible.

Mailing Lists

These are on because the current box sits on an ip that is in a lot of spam black lists. For this reason many people don't get mantis emails. Networks that are especially bad about that are and


Our integrated build server


Our source code viewer.

This is a two step process:

  • A nightly cronjob that dumps the mysql databases to /var/dbbackups
  • A backuppc process running at Sean Dague's house that sshes in nightly and backs up
    • /home
    • /etc
    • /var/www
    • /var/svn
    • /var/dbbackups

Backuppc has aged backups, so we've got dailies for a week, weeklies for a month, monthlies for 4 months, and every 4 months for 16 months. After the data losses on the previous box, good backups were a must.


  • Mediawiki Upgrade
  • Find new backup solution
  • Publish osmantis bot to opensim forge
  • Upgrade mantis to latest stable
