TRIM

TRIM is an acronym for the Tiki Remote Instance Manager

See also TIM and Tiki Console.

Some of the wishes below will likely be handled by Monitoring and Configuration Management and Systems Orchestration Marc Laporte

Current state

State as of May 2016:
  • After a pretty calm period in 2012-2013-2014, there has been a recent increase in activity in 2015-2016: https://sourceforge.net/p/tikiwiki/code/HEAD/log/?path=/trim
  • Has quite a few features but mostly used for backups
  • Use at your own risk. However, it was demonstrated to work on different hosts, so somewhat usable.
  • It is somewhat usable in "ideal" conditions (ideal PHP configuration, certain tools must be installed on the server), but not yet robust to deal with various server configurations.
  • At least 3 TRIMs are running to manage a total of over 30 Tiki sites
  • It is not yet fully documented. It is a wizard-like app, so if you are familiar with shell scripts and installing/upgrading Tiki, you should be OK. However, it is not robust to user errors. For example, if you mistype your database username, the script could just die instead of giving a second chance.

Who is behind this?

  • Marc Laporte
  • Jonny Bradley
  • Louis-Martin Richard (tester)
  • Philippe Back (plans to add a nicer front-end GUI)
  • amette
  • Rodrigo Primo (added WordPress support)
  • You? (We are looking for Beta-testers!!)

Nice to have

  • If TRIM tries to make an instance where there is a directory "images", it will causes conflicts and create problems.
    • TRIM could check that no conflicting directories exist

Feedback on fresh install of TRIM as of 2016-04-04

  • "make instance": should offer to create a username and db from root access done a long time ago
  • TRIM should warn if not on PHP 5.5 CLI (for Tiki 13.x+)

Feedback on fresh install of TRIM as of 2016-02-12

Improvements

  • make access should cd to the right directory done
  • default web root should be /var/www/virtual/example.org instead of /home/root/public_html done, depending on OS
  • backup format should go from 1_2016-02-12_04-19-40.tar.bz2 to 1_example.org_2016-02-12_04-19-40.tar.bz2 done
  • If TRIM fails (ex: to login, to backup, etc.), an email alert should be sent out.


Alias

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
