Phone meeting with Trellon 12/10/2008

Date: 
Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Location: 
Conference call
Committee: 
Web Design
Agenda: 
  1. uc_discounts - newer versions since Trellon patched it. Don't have original that they patched so can't tell what they changed. Did not see Trellon issues on Drupal - they were supposed to report the fix so we could eventually accept newer updates.
  2. I have made changes to zen trails, so before they make any changes they should copy what is on the site.
  3. Account panel bug - someone needs to make a patch and submit it
  4. Advice on how to fix logon and register
  5. very slow even on dedicated server http://74.126.24.75/nynjtc.net
  6. access table not working properly (can't replicate)
  7. mkdir error message
  8. remove + from costs of memberships
  9. go over cutover plans to see if Trellon know of any problems that might cause problems
    1. root has both index.html and index.php (and rest of Drupal) Apache currently prefers html before php so the old site should continue to work but the Drupal won't work. There is another copy of Drupal at nynjtc.net which will work. 
    2. shutdown .net version. copy the files directory from .net to .org
    3. change apache preferences to php before html (can no longer get to index.html without typing it explicitly - ok because it will not be maintained and wil quickly be obsolete.)
    4. the new site should be up, but it will have a lot of links to old pages which are still where they were so no need to change any of them.
    5. gradually redo old material in Drupal and set the .html pages to transfer to the new site location.
    6. Drupal version has a nice menu pull out on the left menu that goes to all the old familiar places (except goes to new equivalents when ready).
    7. Very open to other suggestions that allow increment change over.
    8. does the .htaccess file cause any problems with the url rewrites?

Minutes: 
  1. uc_discounts - newer versions since Trellon patched it. Don't have original that they patched so can't tell what they changed. Did not see Trellon issues on Drupal - they were supposed to report the fix so we could eventually accept newer updates. Martin, this is one for you.
  2. I have made changes to zen trails, so before they make any changes they should copy what is on the site.
  3. Account panel bug - someone needs to make a patch and submit it
    Martin again I think.
  4. Advice on how to fix logon and register Trellon will estimate cost
  5. very slow even on dedicated server http://74.126.24.75/nynjtc.net Simon suggests turning on memcache and either aps or xcache. Also recommends separating the groups out to groups.nynjtc.org so main site doesn't see the access checking penalties. Also suggests looking at MySQL slow query logs.
  6. access table not working properly (can't replicate) deferred for more info
  7. mkdir error message check for bad write permissions Fixed 12/11/
  8. remove + from costs of memberships Trellon will estimate cost
  9. go over cutover plans to see if Trellon know of any problems that might cause problems looks ok
    1. root has both index.html and index.php (and rest of Drupal) Apache currently prefers html before php so the old site should continue to work but the Drupal won't work. There is another copy of Drupal at nynjtc.net which will work.
