    58 == BOINC server admin ==
    59 
    60 The BOINC web site (https://boinc.berkeley.edu) is currently hosted
    61 on isaac.ssl.berkeley.edu, which runs Scientific Linux.
    62 It runs a number of software systems:
    63 
    64   * Trac
    65   * Mediawiki
    66   * MySQL
    67   * Apache
    68   * PHP
    69 
    70 These may need to be upgraded periodically.
    71 
    72 TODO: document our configuration for these systems.
    73 
    74 TODO: a plan for migrating the server to a different machine or VM if isaac dies.
    75 
    76 TODO: move as much from BOINC server to github as possible.
    77 E.g. the trac wiki and mediawiki pages.

    9360   You can get a current list from a browser like Chrome.
    94  * Maintain the code-signing key used for Win.  We get this from Comodo, and it's about $100/year.
