Right now the site has 2 servers: main massassi server which runs the site & forums, and a second server running the 3dpreview stuff.
Most of massassi is written in really old PHP but it has been updated and combed through for security issues so it's not horrible. The forums are obviously commercial software and there is an update or two that should be applied. There may be some perl stuff running here and there as well (like maybe levels search and possibly SotD or LotW archives but I can't remember).
I run them off 2 linodes that are probably significantly oversized and cost me $80/month (which includes their automated backups of the main server). I think both are running Debian but the main server is at an older version.
I would like to hand it over to someone that:
- has some web development experience
- has some server maintenance experience
- will be good for the community
- shares the vision that everything here was contributed by community members and should be free & open
If I get no takers my plan is to:
- copy the database, wipe it clean of all personal information (passwords, email addresses & ip addresses)
- export it as a mysql .sql file
- zip everything up and put it somewhere (hopefully permanent??) so interested parties can download it
- close the site down, maybe leave the domain up but have a pointer to the download only
Sorry guys, I just don't have the motivation or energy to spend on the site anymore.
