setup OAI repository on beta
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The OAIRepository need to be setup on beta so lucene can request it updates.

We need an OAI mysql database and create a OAI user there. The wiki documentation should have everything covered : http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OAIRepository#Install_on_Wiki

The OAI password is in a puppet variable: $passwords::lucene::oai_pass which has already been populated.

I have created the 'oai' database on deployment-sql.
A lsearch2 user is setup in the oaiuser table and uses the password from puppet $passwords::lucene::oai_pass.

I cant login with those credentials though but most of the installation is done for now.

Testing on a local apache, the setup seems to be properly working but squid eat the user authentication credentials :/

Test on apache:

curl -x localhost:80 -v -u USERNAME:PASSWORD \
'http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/index.php?title=Special:OAIRepository&verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=mediawiki&from=2001-01-01'

Give me a nice output.

So I need to find out how to have squid pass the user credentials to the backend apaches.

Add to reconfigure squid to pass the WWW-Authentication header to the Apaches server. This is done by adding 'login=PASS' to each cache_peer directive.

Did the test, that works now !
