I'm looking for someone to take over development of some web hosting
scripts I've got to a usable state, but haven't time to finish.
They're basically auto configure scripts for virtual web hosting accounts,
with web, mail and primary DNS all done on the same box. Your standard
co-located box setup, although it can not do any of these.
The basic idea is to keep all the config for each account (ie domain) in a
single file, but be as flexible as possible. It allows complete custom
configuration in an account, but a basic account is just a four line
definition. So your web config, DNS setup and mail forwarding all goes in
one easy to manage file.
Also does other stuff like log rotation and cron jobs sensibly.
It's not one shot configuration. You can edit these files, and it will make
changes. So it's not a script for creating accounts, it's a system to allow
you to easily create and modify accounts. Just type 'commit' and the
changes are made.
It does need a bit more work on the installation side of things, and could
perhaps do with a few more features, and needs to be packaged neatly. It's
written in perl with a few shell scripts.
Would anyone like to take over development?
