After having bivouacked for five years at Fuga we had to move. The
Openstack region linuxaudio.org
was camping on was being phased out and
even though we were offered a courteous discount to stay on Fuga it was
cheaper to move to a different hosting provider. So here we are at
Hetzner with two small servers, one for mail and one for the websites,
and a storage box for everything we don't use that often anymore.
All in all everything went way more smoothly then back in February 2018.
For some services and users it was a pretty seamless operation. We are
still improving some bits here and there but in general we're in pretty
good shape. Biggest hurdle was migrating from Mailman2 to Mailman3 but
David Runge did a great job there, many thanks David!
The wiki is now running on the latest version of Dokuwiki too and the
underlying OS is recent and up to date again.
It could be of course that things are missing or not working properly
anymore, if so then please let us know! And a big thanks to Fuga for
hosting us at no extra costs for five years. With a bit of a sad heart I
shut down the Openstack instances but it was time to move on.
Hosting does cost a small amount now, approx. €150 a year. We'll
probably put up a page somewhere to facilitate in donating or funding
the hosting of linuxaudio.org
. We'll keep you posted on that.
