Infrastructure

From 57North Hacklab
Jump to: navigation, search

The members of 57North Hacklab maintain infrastructure projects that help with the day-to-day running of the space, such as providing network access, telephony and web services.

Some of the things we run are considered to be required for the space to function and are listed under the Core Infrastructure section, others are provided on a best effort basis and we're not going to panic if they break.

"There is only one service provider whose interests are directly aligned with your own, yourself!"

Core Infrastructure

Some things are required for the space to function properly. The things in this section are on that list.

If anything on this list isn't working please let us know (loudly).

Main Website

The public facing site for the space: https://57north.org.uk/

The site is on github: https://github.com/hackerdeen/website

Hosted on garioch, from /srv/vhosts/57north/

SSL cert from letsencrypt - needs renewed (at least) every 90 days. letsencrypt update

Internet connection

Converged Logo

Our Internet connection is provided for us by the good people at Converged (converged.co.uk). Information on the local network in the space can be found on the network page.

Membership system

HackHub records details of members, payments, allows opening the door and setting the space status.

https://hub.57north.org.uk/hub/

Hosted on finzean under the hackhub user. Running in a virtualenv in ~hackhub/.hackhub/. Code is in ~hackhub/hackhub/. Apache config /etc/apache2/sites-available/hub.57north.org.uk-le-ssl.conf.

Mail

Accept mail for 57North domains and the mailing lists.

Runs on garioch

/etc/aliases has things to point contact addresses at addresses for the people handling them. Run newaliases after editing this.

Mailing lists can be managed with the commands in /usr/lib/mailman/bin

Doorbot

Stuff in the space that allows members to unlock the door with commands in hackhub. Currently a PC and an arduino, there are plans to replace this with something that will also allow the use of RFID cards and wont involve a pile of wires and electronics on the floor by the door.

Current version maintained by ormiret

See also Doorbot.

Domains

Main domain is 57north.org.uk We have previously used 57north.co and hackerdeen.org and still have some things using them (mailing lists on 57north.co, possibly some other stuff). At Some Point™ everything should be moved onto 57north.org.uk

Currently all owned by the space account at GANDI (details in the password store).

Servers

Above services are on our two VPSs from BitFolk (garioch and finzean) and a machine at OVH/KimSufi (ks1). Everything has been moved off ks1, it now just has redirects to where things are now.
