iwlocal event fails - teamsite

Today we had a horrible problem with teamsite. It appeared that no submit deployments were running since the box was rebooted for some patching.

Our submit deployments are configured in [TS_HOME]/local/iwlocal.cfg
where on 'iwatsub' event, a custom script kicks off the deployment.
This custom script logs to a file, and tailing that file showed that the script never ran, ever!

after a bit of digging, i realized that the event subsystem was probably down. This is how you restart it, to fix this problem:

sudo /etc/init.d/iw.local stop
sudo /etc/init.d/iw.local start

after restarting iw.local the submit deployments started running again. It may be the case, that iw.local needs to run after a reboot, and does not do so automatically.

apache vhost maintenance switching

i need to put my site into maintenance mode when some work is being done on the app servers.

add this rewrite to all vhosts that need to be taken down. When the switch needs to happen, create /system/maintenance.html
delete the file, or rename it when the maintenance is finished.

RewriteCond /system/maintenance.html -f
RewriteRule ^.*$ /system/maintenance.html [L]

this solution will cause all your images/js/css files to redirect to the maintenance page. Modify the regex if that is a problem, otherwise, dont use any image/js/css on the maintenance.html page.
