This is the problem. There will be a need for multiple web servers & 2
mail servers. Mailing lists + archives will be split into its own VM,
with mail handled for every other domain in another VM supporting
virtual email hosting. This solves many problems with mail that we
currently have as well as facilitating requests from the MW committee
for member benefits. The main one being that it separates email accounts
from system accounts.
The whole idea of having the entire MW space in a VM is to make the life
easier for the coders in that they would have their own system to change
how they see fit and not be held hostage to other requirements for
apache config etc on the system.
At the moment, disk space is the major issue. The system has 2 x 73Gb
U320 SCSI drives - which is not enough to do the split to VMs - however
I'm chasing up a few options which may resolve this (and get better
hardware). It does however mean that I'll be required to purchase some
Right now, I'm making plans to see what I can do. When I see what I can
scrape together, I'll start finalising things.
