Devon noted that the public demo sites aren’t yet back after the OVH incident. I started to reactivate them. En passant I optimized the docs about Set up a public demo server, which required a series of changes in getlino for this use case. Also some changes in Set up a Lino production server.

I had the following idea: We might update the .getlab-ci.yml file of book so that it uses getlino. This would be yet another coverage for getlino, and it would remove quite some duplicate code.

I ran the first getlino startsite without having a –web-server (because the doc page was obsolete), so getlino created everything except the nginx and supervisor config files. After setting –web-server and other options (e.g. –server-domain) I created noi1r by copying (and adapting) the config files. Now for cosi1e, nginx still just returns a plain text message “Internal Server Error”, no entry in error.log, only the following line in access.log: - - [16/Mar/2021:08:32:15 +0000] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 500 32 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:86.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/86.0"

The reason was that I had forgotten to copy the wsgi.py file. TIL: when your supervisor config file says:

command = /usr/bin/uwsgi --ini /path/to/uwsgi.ini --ignore-sigpipe

and the uwsgi.ini file says:

chdir           = /path/to/project
module          = wsgi

then you get this situation of having a plain text error message without a log entry.
