Migration Notes

Steps taken to migrate from luna to apollo (the commands are not the exact commands used or are high level steps):

  1. Change the TTL of the wiki.archlinux.org DNS record to 300 to aid the migration/rollback.
  2. Put the wiki on luna in maintenance mode. We have a template page that is used for that.
  3. Create a database dump using mysqldump archwiki | gzip > dump.sql
  4. Create a tar file containing the cache, sessions and uploads dir: tar zcvf wiki-files.tar.gz cache sessions uploads
  5. Push the mariadb role to apollo (need to restart mysqld)
  6. Restart mysql and take the bugs.archlinux.org out of maintenance mode
  7. Push the php-fom role to apollo (new extensions)
  8. Push the wiki role to apollo
  9. Manually disable the wiki services/timers (there's no DB for them to run)
  10. Change the DNS record to point to apollo (CNAME)
  11. Manually change the nginx config again to put the wiki on maintenance mode on apollo as well
  12. Copy the DB dump and files from luna to apollo and extract them (use checksums)
  13. Run mysqldump db_name < dump.sql (this takes a long time)
  14. Extract the files to their respective directories (the role creates them)
  15. Fix the permissions with chown -R archwiki
  16. Run the wiki role again to take it out of maintenance and also re-enable/restart the services
  17. Copied the missing files under /srv/http/vhosts/wiki.archlinux.org/public/images (they were on .gitignore). Copied them to the respective directory on apollo.
  18. Check if the services are running
  19. Change the TTL of the wiki.archlinux.org DNS record back to the default
