Static and Managed Server

The Static and Managed (S&M) server hosts static content (i.e. HTML pages, images, etc.), a limited selection of common web applications, and a limited number of CGI scripts. It is not set up for direct shell access.

Access

The hostname is snm.lug.org.uk. If your LUG is hosted on S&M, you will be given a personal login ID, rather than sharing a group login as on the old xinit server. This will give you access to your LUG's filespace through scp(1) or sftp(1). You will not be able to get an interactive shell using ssh(1). snm's RSA key fingerprint is d2:ad:3b:3d:2e:49:8b:5b:3a:5b:3a:f6:56:39:c2:cc. You will get access to a private user area in /home/users/USERNAME. Your LUG's area is in /home/groups/LUGNAME.

Additional logins for other admins of your LUG can be created on request – talk to the admins.

Web Applications

DokuWiki

The DokuWiki installation holds its working files in ~/dokuwiki-data. If you wish to configure your DokuWiki install, you can do so with the file ~/dokuwiki.conf. This file is not a standard PHP-based DokuWiki configuration file. Instead, it is a simple key=value format. Comments may be placed in the file on lines starting with #. At present, the following DokuWiki configuration options are supported:

  • title – Wiki title
  • lang – Language setting (en)
  • recent – How many items to show on the recent changes page (10)
  • breadcrumbs – How many recently-visited pages to show (20)
  • youarehere – Boolean: show "you are here" (0)
  • typography – Convert smart quotes: 0=none, 1=double quotes, 2=all quotes (1)
  • dformat – Date format
  • signature – Signature format
  • camelcase – Boolean: accept CamelCase for links? (0)
  • useacl – Boolean: Use ACLs (1)
  • userewrite – Boolean: Use URL rewriting for pretty URLs (1)

Most additional configuration options can be supported with little effort – just ask.

AbUseMod wiki

The AbUseMod installation holds its files in ~/abusemod-data. Configuration is done in ~/abusemod-data/config, and is in the simple key=value style described above. At present, the supported configuration directives are:

  • SiteName – the name of the site.

Most additional configuration options can be supported with little effort – just ask.
