Note 12/14/2014

RT was updated to rt-4.2.9 and is now running on Openstack. https://rt.inspirehep.net/ == https://inspirert.cern.ch/

There is also a QA instance https://inspire-vm13.cern.ch/ for testing, etc.

Info below is outdated and only of historical interest:

About

There are two RT instances now, one for development at http://inspiredev.cern.ch/rt3 and the "production" RT at http://inspirert.cern.ch

INSPIRERT

SLC5 box managed by Quattor/CDB. It runs in the cluster cds/rt. The rt sub-cluster template can be seen at http://tpl-viewer.cern.ch/cdb-tpl-view/tpl_view.php?profile=prod/customization/uds/rt/config.

Will be used for RT production for INSPIRE.

Also known as INSPIRE-SUPPORT.

INSPIREDEV

SLC4 development box

The httpd config file, /etc/httpd/conf.d/rt3.conf is shown below:

Alias /rt3 "/opt/rt3/share/html"
Alias /NoAuth "/opt/rt3/share/html/NoAuth"

PerlRequire /opt/rt3/bin/webmux.pl

<Directory "/opt/rt3/share/html">
  AllowOverride All
  Options ExecCGI FollowSymLinks

  RewriteEngine On
  RedirectMatch permanent (.*)/$ $1/index.html
  AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
  SetHandler perl-script
  PerlHandler RT::Mason


For the mail gateway, changes discussed in http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/ManualEmailConfig were made in /etc/aliases, i.e.

inspire-support:  "|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue General --action correspond --url http://localhost/rt3 --debug"
inspire-comment:  "|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue General --action comment --url http://localhost/rt3"

Mail configuration requires some extra steps, too. Namely:

    • instructing cern that inspirert.cern.ch should receive its own mail

    • opening port 25 in the firewall
