a connection comes in for sipb.mit.edu which via a hack in MIT DNS gets directed instead to PENGUIN-LUST.MIT.EDU. If it's on ports 80, (443?), or 444 it gets passed off to scripts (where it's handled by b-m or b-k, whichever).
The DocumentRoot for sipb.mit.edu is
/afs/sipb.mit.edu/project/sipb-www/web_scripts/sipb. This directory contains a
.htaccess file that causes most URIs to be served out of
web_scripts/sipb/_wiki, a symlink to
../../Scripts/wiki. This directory's contents are static files generated by ikiwiki
after each edit.
If you want to just edit contents, use the web interface (edit links at bottom of page) or "git clone git+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/mit/sipb-www/git/wiki", make your edits in the mdwn, etc.
When you commit, ikiwiki should get automatically republished as HTML.
To work on the code surrounding the wiki in addition to the wikitext, clone the superrepo:
$ git clone --recursive ssh://email@example.com/mit/sipb-www/git/sipb-www $ cd sipb-www
You can also clone directly from the filesystem if you have AFS permission. If you want a preview of your pages to be generated locally, you can use the generate-preview.sh script in the superrepo:
$ git clone --recursive /mit/sipb-www/git/sipb-www $ cd sipb-www $ # make changes here $ mkdir /tmp/sipb-out $ ./generate-preview.sh /tmp/sipb-out $ firefox /tmp/sipb-out/index.html
