Vagrant Setup alembic config errors
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Setting up Vagrant via the mediawiki installation guide works fine (, but on trying to set up a wikimetrics instance and running "vagrant reload --provision", I get an "The SSH command responded with a non-zero exit status." error and thus the wikimetrics site isn't available on localhost:5000.

The Vagrant stdout points to a "tablename = db.config['ARCHIVE_TABLENAME']; KeyError: 'ARCHIVE_TABLENAME'".

Log of my Vagrant stdout is here.

I took a look this morning and this worked out of the box for me. The error pasted above basically means the configuration file didn't get written to /etc/wikimetrics/ Could you check that directory for the db_conf.yaml file and see if it has an ARCHIVE_TABLENAME property? If not, could you try setting up vagrant from scratch and seeing if it has problems writing to that file before it errors out here? I know this sucks, but troubleshooting these kinds of issues always seems like a moving target to me.

I remember seeing a db_config.yaml.erb file with the 'ARCHIVE_TABLENAME' property, in the ./puppet/modules/wikimetrics/templates directory. I'm currently afk, but once I get back I'll try to setting up vagrant afresh.

So, I tried reinstalling twice last night, and both times I get an error message on running the wikimetrics vagrant setup. From looking at the stdout error code, a bunch of failed dependencies seems to be at fault.

And this makes sense, since vagrant is using apt-get to download the packages, and apt-get isn't the package manager used for my Mac OS X computer. Is there a way to specify HomeBrew or some other package manager to Vagrant?

Here are the errors thrown to stout

@Memeht, honestly I feel your pain. Every person I know who's tried to work with mediawiki-vagrant runs into some problems like this. I don't see why apt-get would be a problem, because puppet is executing that code inside the guest operating system, which is ubuntu. But clearly there's some kind of problem. I can offer two paths out of this:

  1. If all you're trying to do is run wikimetrics locally, I can help you set it up directly so you don't need mediawiki-vagrant. Just throw a google hangout on my calendar and I'm happy to help.
  1. If you're trying to get mediawiki-vagrant running for other purposes, I have no useful advice other than _completely_ wiping everything and re-installing the latest version of everything, then trying again. And by completely wiping I mean ~/.vagrant.d and ~/VirtualBox VMs and uninstalling vagrant and virtualbox with --purge, --obliterate-into-nothingess or whatever super final options are available in brew. If it helps, last time I had a problem with vagrant, I had to repeat the uninstall / reinstall process for hours until I figured out how to get rid of every last trace and get a fresh working copy. And Marcel went through a similar thing. Since then, I haven't had any problems so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

@Millimetric I'm trying to run wikimetrics locally. I've also created a google hangouts session and invited you to the event via your Phabricator calendar. Let me know if the time works.

@Milimetric So sorry got the times screwed up, are you available later today still?

@Memeht: yes. I can grab some lunch and hang out now if you want.

@Milimetric That would be wonderful! Say, 1p.m PST?

Declining because Wikimetrics is being discontinued. See: T211835.
