Release 0.5

Buildbot and EC2 Project Page


  • Port Try Server to Seneca's Hera Cluster
  • Setup Seneca's EC2 account for Seneca Try Server
  • Apache User configuration
  • Downloadable Try Builds


This release is all about getting everything to work on Seneca's machines, and getting the configurations all set up.

The temporary Try Server that is set up on my personal server is going to be ported over to Seneca's Hera cluster, and then configured to allow the Try Server to use all of the available machines.

User information will be manually added to an Apache config file, to give users access to the Try Server. This is because you will need to be registered to access the Try Server, and we also want to limit access to who's builds will launch EC2 instances when the cluster is full.

Also going to add a build step to upload the completed build to a downloadable location on the cluster.
