MichaelDaumGood morning guys. DNS for foswiki.org still is not fixed. I informed the hoster about it and just received the following message "we have problems with the registrar. working on it. will come back to you when this is fixed." However no progress so far.
Foswiki.org is still up and running. Its IP address is 2.56.98.129. In case you'd like to add it manually to your DNS config...

MichaelDaumThe current status of DNS propagation can be monitored here: https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/foswiki.org [07:28]

TiagoBugarinHi! I am Tiago. A few years back I joined a Hackerclub in my area and started helping with some server issues. Now I am facing a major trouble: an ancient Foswiki installation on an ancient Debian installation and both were very badly maintained over the years.
Would anyone be kind to help me with a way to upgrade the Foswiki installation (1.9, as far as I know) and maybe containerize the thing so I can move it to a newer server
The actual server runs Debian Wheezy 7.11
Another possibility would be to "export" the entire Wiki to raw HTML.

MichaelDaumHi TiagoBugarin
Basically, you'd need to set up a new vm and move over the content, right?
[13:23]
TiagoBugarinIt looks like so [13:25]
MichaelDaumWhich virtualization environment are you using / would like to be using? libvirt/kmu? [13:25]
TiagoBugarinThe Foswiki installation is hosted at DigitalOcean. I thought about using libvirt to prepare the whole thing in my computer (so not to disturb the site in production) and then upload the finished image from my computer to a new DO Droplet [13:28]
MichaelDaumI've recently created a vagrant to do so: https://github.com/MichaelDaum/vagrant-foswiki
missing lotsa docu of course but maybe you get the gist
it lets you set up a libvirt image quickly with shell access. Next step would be to cp in your old data.
with some bits spared that are part of the newly created vm

TiagoBugarinnever used vagrant... will give it a try
thanks
[13:32]
In a thought here I remembered I tryed a guide a sometime ago to upgrade the 1.9 installation to a Docker container. The migration from the 1.9 to 2.X failed for some reason I cant remember now. I think it was a file missing, maybe something called LocalSites or something like it [13:37]
MichaelDaumThere is a docker script as well, yes.
see https://github.com/timlegge/docker-foswiki
I've added a few rough steps how to get started with vagrant-foswiki.

MichaelDaumyes ... for 4 days in a row

please use the ip addr 2.56.98.129 for now
[13:49]
TiagoBugarinOhhh so this is why I was not able to reach the site today!! I used Tor Browser to access it thinking it was an issue with my ISP [13:57]
