This is the list of intended developments which act as markers on the road to a fully interactive site. As with everything in the early stages, dates and details can change without notice.
05FEB19 – Webserver Basic Install
We expect the Web Service to be installed on the primary webserver and any initial hardware issues resolved.
We initially set up on an Ubuntu / Linux server and at the same time configured a Windows 10 Pro server using SSD drive bank. This enabled a from-power startup to running web servers in 3.0 seconds. The Ubuntu server is likely to be configured as a working backup option. A secondary drive was installed (4TB) to host the website data away from the primary drive in case the backup server is required with the drive transferred.
All software installed are the latest, updated versions:
Web system: Windows 10 Pro – Apache 2.4.37 – MySQL 5.7.24 – Php 7.2.14.
Web CMS: WordPress 5.0.3 (latest); PhpBB 3.1
It is intended to install the latest Woocommerce shopping site, using Dropify and/or Shopify both of which we have up to date commercial licences.
13FEB19 – Forum Integration
PhpBB forum installation linking to and from main WordPress website using plugins. This was completed in advance of schedule.
Intended to register next administrator to the website and forum to help observer progress.
