The last 5 weeks we have encountered numerous setbacks as well as many successes in moving forward.
- We have set up a workspace in the Visualization Lab at the College of Charleston Santee Cooper GIS Lab.
- This workstation currently has two machines running with arcgis 10.0 and numerous other programs
- We have three more machines ready to be imaged after the first two to provide extra work stations
- We have set up a development server called gis.cofc.edu with the programs necessary.
To set up our beta server we had to:
- Successfully identify where all of the databases are stored.
- We are in the process of copying the databases to the beta server for testing purposes.
- Find all of the relevant code for the website and then upload to our github repository for versioning
- We have copied the majority of the data from geodata and earth to our new beta server for testing
Problems we have encountered include:
- We attempted to implement arcgis server 10.1 on our beta server with the assistance of a local charleston called ROK Tech.
- After discussing our options we have decided to revert to the stable version of arcgis server 10.0, the newer version has many problems still to be solved and is not suitable at this time for live production hosting.
- We communicated with other members of the proteus team who had done the initial setup of the current alpha version of the website UI. Due to their busy schedules and their not being on location with us it took time to sort out where all of our data was located.
We will continue to work diligently on the beta server migration. Our next step is to setup a live closed beta of the current website UI that will be hosted on gis.cofc.edu. This will allow us to continue on to upgrading the UI, as we will then be starting with the base version that is the current standard.
