I have further tightened Apache with a ruleset to prevent comment spam and XSS attacks.
If your IP is listed on zen.spamhaus.org (http://www.spamhaus.org/zen/), good luck.... You cannot access the site.
Normally, an IP does not get listed there until you are a spambot:-)
Enjoy the site.
The site is now behind a varnish cache. Performance should be better.
The architecture of the server is as follows:
The cache refreshes every 15 minutes.
The site is now running on a premium network and the network and server uptime should be 99.9% from now on.
Let me know if you have any trouble using the site.
Enjoy the site.
Folks, the site is now twitter enabled.
To set up your twitter account,
1. Login to the twin site.
2. Click My Account from the menu on the left.
3. Click Edit and then click Twitter Accounts.
4. Click Add Account. You will be redirected to the Twitter Site.
5. Twitter asks you to allow access to the twin-drupal application. Click Allow.
6. Login to twitter.
7. Twitter authenticates you and you are returned to the TWIN site.
Done. This is a one time process to add your twitter account.
I have noticed people posting jobs anywhere they like - in blogs and forums. This is NOT allowed.
Post JOBS only in the JOBS section. No where else.
Forums are meant for queries. If you have a query on something, post it in the appropriate forum.
Blogs are meant to articulate your thoughts. May be you have a good article related to TW, or may be you have some tips on TW. Post it in your blog. Do NOT post queries in blogs. Anything unrelated to TW goes in the LOUNGE.
Do NOT post resumes anywhere except in the RESUME section.
I have updated the site. Drupal [actually we run on a modified Drupal version called Pressflow] has been updated to the latest version 6.
I have installed a mobile theme. Accessing the site through a mobile phone, should display the site properly.
I have also installed a twitter module. After login, click My Account, click Twitter and set your twitter account details.
Once set, you have the option to announce your post on twitter. Select post to twitter when publishing the post.
Folks, I have added a proper Rapid SSL paid certificate to the site.
This should be compatible on all browsers.
Delete the SSL certificate exceptions for twin-india.org if you have added them to the browser, earlier.
To do this on Mozilla Firefox:
- Click Edit - Preferences
- Click Encryption and then click View Certificates
- Select the Startcom SSL certificates or the older self signed certificates for twin-india.org and www.twin-india.org and click Delete
Enjoy secure browsing.
All software on the server has been upgraded. Files have been backed up and the site is back in operation.
The site is now moved to a faster network and the counter module on the site has been disabled.
That module was practically killing mysql and causing the site to load slow. Examining it, we found that it was counting all the rows in the mysql tables on EACH page load. Bah
After a lot of analysis, we found the module that was the culprit. It has been thrown away.
Enjoy the fast site:-)
I have added an SSL certificate to the site. The site will automatically redirect to the https version.
The SSL certificate is free and is from Startcom.
The site should work on all mainstream browsers, without issue.
Thanks for your patience.
I notice that many of you have created accounts and have NOT logged in at all.
Such accounts will be deleted after a week.
If you have no intention of using the site, then do not create accounts on the site. We are not here for numbers.
