Tools in preparation for CMS


  • [INFO] Server was reinstalled with new cookbooks were installed on a new VM
  • [INFO] Database is growing 11Gb
  • [TODO] There are problems with restarts of etherpad-lite occurring every couple of minutes. We're not yet sure, why this is happening. Steffen will check with mysql-tuning-primer and in doubt ask Xaver Maierhofer, who is a bit more into ep.
  • [TODO] Andri wants to have a look at Redis whether it could make sense to be a replacement of MySQL.

Documentation hub

  • [INFO] Cookbook site-builddocstypo3org has been deployed on the new documentation server.
