Server update, 2016-08-01

We have one URL cleanup fix this week for ResidentAdvisor links — thanks to Yvanz for working on that! We’re still working very hard on moving to a more reliable hosting platform, which is why this week’s release is a small one again. Most of our services have been ported to Docker at this point, and we’re planning to start testing the deployment of these soon. We appreciate everyone’s patience!

The git tag is v-2016-08-01.

  1. Any hope, that “most of our services” includes a new working Virtual Machine with working search server and new schema?

  2. From :

    I spent quite a bit of time working on the new MB-VM setup. The latest code-base should produce a working VM on linux or on a Mac. Windows not supported. I’d love to get people to try it and see if it works for them:

    Work is on-going, but we’ve had maybe 1 person test the new WIP VM besides Rob. If you want the VM, please help test it.

  3. I would help, but my platform (Windows) is not supported.

    Or should this:
    1. Clone this repo
    2. Install VirtualBox. If you already have it installed, update to the lastest version!
    3. Install Vagrant. Get the latest version! (1.8.x+)
    4. run
    5. Wait.
    6. Wait some more.
    7. Really, wait more.
    8. You’re thinking about complaining how slowly this is going? You should wait some more.
    9. Better be safe than sorry, wait some more.
    10. With some amount of luck you’ll have a working VM without search indexes at this point.

    work on windows too? Without search indexes?

  4. What I have done:
    a) Startet VMWare Workstation
    b) Installed an new ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    c) Cloned the repo, installed Virtualbox and Vagrant and run
    get this:
    ==> default: Booting VM…
    There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
    for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

    Command: [“startvm”, “5a418828-2c29-47c6-ab33-75e843672ffc”, “–type”, “headless”]

    Stderr: VBoxManage: error: VT-x is not available (VERR_VMX_NO_VMX)
    VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

    creating the VM failed.

  5. OK, found the necessary setting in VMwar Workstation:
    Hardware -> Processor -> Virtualization engine -> CHECK “Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI”

    Now the points 5-9 are running…

  6. 2 hours later:
    After billions of packages and dependencies and gigabytes of downloaded data i finally got a
    “ succeeded”
    But where do I start now? There is no GUI starting on Port 5000

    And what about the search server?
    One of the last lines was “Creating search indexes … (CreateSearchIndexes.sql)”
    Should we have a working search server after all the executed steps or not?

  7. Has anyone tried this guys scripts?
    Could be a good to create a simple VM by installing Ubuntu and running the scripts.
