We need a new VM on xen1.lax for archive.wordpress.org, which should have nginx-base but not PHP. A new wporg-archive role should have the bare minimum – just an nginx config that listens on archive.wordpress.org (SSL not needed) and serves up static files in /home/archive/public_html.

The SSH keys for coffee2code, otto42, and myself should be installed for the archive user. Ideally the user should have the ability do to the following:

  • sudo /usr/bin/vim /usr/local/etc/conf.d/archive.wordpress.org.conf
  • sudo /etc/init.d/nginx reload
