This is our first Python push, so we'll need to make sure all our ducks are in a row before we get started, but the major points:

* Outage page. Access during the database conversion will deadlock the process.
* Convert the database to UTF-8 (final steps to do that are coming).
* Update SVN to 1.5.4 tag. (http://svn.mozilla.org/projects/sumo/tags/1.5/1.5.4_r66525_20100428/)
* Run htaccess.sh
* Install hunspell-devel package (hunspell headers, requires hunspell, too, obviously).
* Clone Kitsune from git, to tag 2.0.1 (http://github.com/jsocol/kitsune). Kitsune should be outside the webroot, in a directory called Kitsune.
* |git submodule update --init && git submodule update|
* Configure settings_local.py.
* Set up virtualenvs as on support-stage-new.
* |pip install -r requirements.txt| (on kitsune virtualenv)
* |./manage.py syncdb| ('no' to super-users.)
* |./manage.py compress_assets|
* Set up mod_wsgi, including aliases, as on support-stage-new.
* Update Sphinx configuration to 1.5.4 tag.
* Reindex Sphinx.

I *think* that's everything. We'll keep posting here if we realize we forgot anything.

There are some additional docs here: http://github.com/jsocol/kitsune/tree/master/docs. support-stage-new (on mrapp-stage04) might be more helpful, as it's a working example. If you find anything wrong with the docs, let me know and we'll fix it.

I'm scheduling a meeting for 10am tomorrow (Tuesday) with many of the IT folks CC'd here so we can try to clear up any questions ahead of time.

The directory should be named "kitsune" in lowercase. My mistake.

We (WebQA) can't push AMO (bug 563435) and SUMO at the same time; in agreeing to do both on the same day, we were figuring that SUMO would push around 7, its usual time.

Updated the WSGI script to follow what Jeremy's doing. New tag is 2.0.2.

UTF8 conversion script, tested on database from 05/04/2010

Here's the script to run the UTF8 conversion. James: you may want to run it just to make sure it works.

It adds SELECT "status"; type statements to make Tim happy.

I also truncate tiki_stats in here, so it should run on a fresh copy with no complaints.

Starting the push for this.

Yay, it's working.

The main issue was an i/o starvation during the puppet config. Puppet would deploy the site without the virtualenv and kill its host by dumping cores. Once this was figured it out, it took a long time to fix because even dead apache processes in the middle of dumping a core can eat i/o resources.

I'm seeing a non-zero but extremely low error rate. Nothing that can't wait until morning.

Thanks for putting in a long night, everyone. Especially Trevor.

Verified FIXED.

Vishal ran his .htaccess redirect-testing script, we all ad-hoc tested search (in 3 languages), we verified individual bugs from 1.5.4 and 2.0 resolved/verified (on staging), and we filed bug 564378 and Paul filed bug 564385.

New deploy bug 564920.
Last Resolved: 7 years ago7 years ago
Resolution: --- → FIXED
Verified "FIXED" in the sense that the Kitsune code is alive (and appears to be well), at http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/search?q=deleting+bookmarks, and by the fact that bug 564920 exists to finish the job.
