is currently responsible for several projects across several domains. By September 2006, the projects have turned into a bit of a mess on the server side. After the file system crash in August, 2006, it no longer became tenable to neglect housecleaning. This page is an attempt to straighten out the mess by documenting the situation, and thereby finding ways to iron out the structure.
Technical support are quite helpful, but the server keeps crashing because it runs out of memory. The file system crashed once. The server is also quite slow. It's quite possible we are about to outgrow this provider.

To add a new domain,
- go to http://www.usemod.com/whm
- login as root/<root password> (if that doesn't work, try usemod/<root password>)
- Go to account functions,
- Create a new account.
- Set your email address!
- ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
- vi /var/named/yourdomain.org.db
- Change all the IPs to match usemod.com's IP (should be 2)
- vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
- Change the VirtualHost? IP of domain.org to match usemod.com's IP (probably 188.8.131.52)
- Go to ~newaccount/www
- rm -rf _*
- /etc/init.d/httpd restart
- /etc/init.d/named restart
This is the root domain for the account. CliffordAdams registered it to explore his ViewPoint ideas. The website has nothing of value on it, but it is the primary DomainNameServer? for all the Meatball domains.
This is the main site for historical reasons. Over time, it has acquired a bit pile of crap as project after project has deposited itself on it. Ideally, only UseModWiki and its associated files should run on this machine.

While SunirShah's site is not strictly speaking a Meatball responsibility, Sunir has cached a fair amount of data and scripts on that site that no longer work, such as MetaWiki, and a ton of files that should be moved to http://www.meatballsociety.org/MeatballWiki/*.
