Apache Config

All vhost configs are in /etc/httpd/conf.d/<servicename>.soylentnews.org.conf All vhost wwwroots are in /var/www/vhosts/<servicename> --mailman (lists.soylentnews.org) is the exception since that was installed as a system package via yum

Current virtual hosts:

  • lists
  • postfixadmin
  • wiki
  • forums
  • webmail (squirrelmail install)
  • rt (not currently active)
  • 000_default (nothing to see here page if no or unrecognized host header is passed)


Just a basic mysql install.

Current databases:

  • postfix -- handles mail accounts -- all mail services auth against this db
  • wiki
  • forums
  • rt

Mail Config
