We have two VPS instances and two Toolforge tools (one each for prod and test). The latter exist because wsexport used to be hosted there, and the VPSs still use those tools' databases and email addresses.
=== Creating a new instance ===
Create a new m1.large instance running on Debian Buster (or m1.small for staging instances). Once the instance has been spawned, SSH in and follow these steps:
# Install PHP and Apache, along with some dependencies:<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
sudo apt update && sudo apt -y upgrade
sudo apt -y install php php-common
sudo apt -y install php-cli php-fpm php-json php-xml php-mysql php-sqlite3 php-intl php-zip php-mbstring php-curl php-imagick
sudo apt -y install apache2 libapache2-mod-php zip unzip default-mysql-client libgl1
# Install Calibre by following [ these instructions] (they recommend not to use the packaged version because it can be out of date). Note that Calibre can fail to clean up its temp files in some situations, so we also add the following in <code>/etc/cron.daily/calibre-cleanup</code>:<source lang="bash">
find /tmp -path '*calibre*tmp*' -user www-data -mtime +2 -delete
# Install composer by following [ these instructions], but make sure to install to the <code>/usr/local/bin</code> directory and with the filename <code>composer</code>, e.g.:<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
sudo php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
# Clone the repository, first removing the html directory created by Apache.<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
cd /var/www && sudo rm -rf html
sudo git clone
cd /var/www/tool
# Become the root user with <code>sudo su root</code>
# Run <code>sudo composer install --no-dev</code>
# Edit the <code>config.php</code> file that was created in the previous step. The main things to change are the database credentials and the temporary directory location.
# Make sure that all the files in the repo are owned by www-data.<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data .
# Create the web server configuration file at <code>/etc/apache2/sites-available/wsexport.conf</code> with the following:<syntaxhighlight lang="apacheconf">
