Paste servers are an easy way to share long-form content such as configuration files or log data with others over short-form communication protocols such as IRC. OpenStack runs the “lodgeit” paste software.
At a Glance¶
Puppet configures lodgeit to use MySQL as a database backend, apache as a front-end proxy.
The lodgeit module will automatically create a git repository in
/var/backups/lodgeit_db. Inside this every site will have its own
SQL file, for example “openstack” will have a file called
openstack.sql. Every day a cron job will update the SQL file (one
job per file) and commit it to the git repository.
Ideally the SQL files would have a row on every line to keep the
diffs stored in git small, but
mysqldump does not yet support
