We do need to document that. Me being the old fart that I am, I do not remember if I have already told you the process of adding things to the wiki. so I am going to ask if i did that way you won't start throwing crackers at me and call me "Polly". (parrot joke for those of you that do not understand).
The documentation is something that has been lacking and we do know it needs to be improved.
But..... I have a very special project I am working on. And it is an area I have done some work with way back when feet was used as fuel in your car.
We have been forced to move our website (godaddy sucks!) and I have secured a VPS. I have been putting together the process to move the site to said VPS. There are some things I have yet to complete but our timetable has moved doe to some other things that just came about. so the sooner we can move the better. I think that if you are able to help me with this. the process would be a whole lot less painless for me. As much as I would like to learn the bits and pieces I have not yet managed to get to I do not know if there will be ample time to learn it as I go (usually breaks things). I could use the hand if you are willing.
This is what we have.
4 cores at 2.3 ghz (dedicated)
4 gig ram (dedicated)
150 gig SSD (dedicated space allocation on a shared SSD stripe)
1000 mbit connection
10tb of bandwidth
New server update.

OK this is where I am at thus far
need to do during the move process:
Migrate MediaWiki SQL database
Migrate PHPBB (Forum) database
Convert MediaWiki database to support 1.28.2
Convert PHPBB database to support 3.2
Set up test site
set up dial instances of mysql
there are other things as well. but those are the biggies and most of it I have already done. I could use someone that would be able to tweak it and help with the things I do not know how to set up.
I have a lot of it done. and when I mean done I have most of a script written so I can do a clean install of the OS and then run the script.
I made a python script to connect to the old site and recursively download everything including backing up the databases.
If you are willing it would be a HUGE help. send me a PM if you are interested.
