Web Servers

From ProtoLab Wiki

It is common for IPROs to request a web server for their class. This page documents the standard procedures for creating a virtual machine and adding the necessary server block configurations and DNS records. By using URLs of the ipro.iit.edu or ideashop.iit.edu domains we can avoid the OTS time constant, getting sites online faster.

Creating a VM

Server Blocks

The Idea Shop machine services01 handles all Idea Shop web routing. Anytime a new web server is added a server block must be added to the nginx config on services01.

Updating DNS

The Idea Shop machine services01 handles all external DNS. Anytime a new web server is added a DNS record must be added on services01.

The Idea Shop machine ideashop-winsv1 handles all internal DNS. Anytime a new web server is added a DNS record must be added on ideashop-winsv1.
