Description of how to install the software needed for Lobber.

Hosts

Hostname

Use

app-dev.lobber.se

Web application server

db-dev.lobber.se

PgSQL server

tracker-dev.lobber.se

BT Tracker

sn-dev.lobber.se

Storage Node

All hosts are running Ubuntu (9.10 from day 0) with the following extra packages and customizations.

common to all

apt-get install git-core git-doc ssl-cert git-core
apt-get install postfix
# local only configuration!

app-dev.lobber.se

apt-get install python-django apache2 libapache2-mod-shib2 python-libtorrent \
   python-bittorrent python-django-doc python-egenix-mxdatetime python-egenix-mxtools \
   python-psycopg2 python-pycurl python-openssl postgresql-client-8.4 python-twisted \
   python-setuptools python-pysqlite2 libapache2-mod-python python-django-tagging \
   python-werkzeug python-django-extensions python-django-evolution deluge-common

python-setuptools gives us easy-install which we use for installing some stuff not packaged in Debian packages:

# easy_install orbited
# easy_install stompservice

Get a 3.x version of stomp.py from http://code.google.com/p/stomppy/ and install:

Create /etc/orbited.cfg:

[listen]
http://:9001
stomp://:61613

[access]
* -> localhost:61613

[static]

[global]
session.ping_interval = 300
user=www-data

[logging]
debug=STDERR,debug.log
info=STDERR,info.log
access=STDERR,info.log
warn=STDERR,error.log
error=STDERR,error.log

#Don't enable debug by default
enabled.default=info,access,warn,error

och se till att orbited startas: orbited -c /etc/orbited.cfg vid boot (/etc/rc.local till nöds)

and make sure that orbited is started like this automatically at boot: orbited -c /etc/orbited.cfg

Activate some Apache modules:

# a2enmod shib2
# a2enmod headers
# a2enmod rewrite
# a2enmod proxy
# a2enmod proxy_http

Set up cron jobs for expiring old torrents, keys and peers.

# m h dom mon dow command
*/5 * * * * cd /../lobber/src/ && ./dev-django-admin.sh expire_peers 5 /dev/null 2>&1
0 0 * * * cd /../lobber/src/ && ./dev-django-admin.sh expire_torrents >/dev/null 2>&1
5 0 * * * cd /../lobber/src/ && ./dev-django-admin.sh expire_keys >/dev/null 2>&1 

Finally, make sure that Lobber can send email. This is done via STOMP messages to a twisted. Run this (in the src directory):

# env PYTHONPATH=`pwd`:$PYTHONPATH twistd -y sendmail.tac

sn-dev.lobber.se

Note that app-dev is a storage node too nowadays – that's how we do file upload.
