Web Services

Welcome to the home of Panda Web Services. This wiki should

  • list existing tools and services
  • explain them
  • describe their installation and configuration


The services (as of 2014/02) are running on a virtual machine in a GSI network segment.
The VM is equiped with:
1* Intel Xeon E312xx (Sandy Bridge) 4GByte 500GByte via LVM

IP address is
DNS is

The machine can not be accessed directly via ssh from outside the GSI network. You can use pandawww user to hop from the lxi's to lxpndww and use the account's "sudo" rights.
All services are installed in directory /srv/www (/srv is mountpoint for the lvm hd)





The Drupal content management system (CMS) will replace the existing handmade Panda website.
To launch the service the DNS entry for www-panda.gsi just needs to point to the new IP.

Installation + configuration

Installation directory is /srv/www/drupal7/drupal-7.xx $BR$ In PandaApacheConfig the Docroot is "/var/www/current", which is a symlink to /srv/www/drupal7/drupal-7.xx.
So you can install new drupal releases next to each other and switch the symlink when ready.
In order to do that, the "site" subfolder within the drupal-7.xx directories need to be a symlink to "../sites".
In /srv/www/drupal7/sites you can find ALL site specific configs incl. the files directories with uploaded content. So for backups it is sufficient to keep that folder and a db dump.
