Admin’s tooling box

In the folder git://utils/ we maintain some tools useful for administrators.

Common commands & environment

Scripts to maintain services often dispose of common commands and environments.

shellcommand

Opens a shell from the service user ${SERVICE_USSR}, very helpful for troubleshooting.

inspect servicecommand

Shows status and log of the service, most often you have a option to enable more verbose debug logs. Very helpful for debugging, but be careful not to enable debugging in a production environment!

FORCE_TIMEOUTenvironment

Sets timeout for interactive prompts. If you want to run a script in batch job, with defaults choices, set FORCE_TIMEOUT=0. By example; to install a reverse proxy for filtron on all containers of the SearXNG suite use

sudo -H ./utils/lxc.sh cmd -- FORCE_TIMEOUT=0 ./utils/filtron.sh apache install

Tooling box setup

The main setup is done in the git://.config.sh (read also Global Settings).

# This file should be edited only ones just before the installation of any
# service is done.  After the installation of the searx service a copy of this
# file is placed into the $SEARX_SRC of the instance, e.g.::
#
#     /usr/local/searx/searx-src/.config.sh
#
# .. hint::
#
#    Before you change a value here, You have to fully uninstall any previous
#    installation of searx, morty and filtron services!

# utils/searx.sh
# --------------

# The setup of the SearXNG instance is done in the settings.yml
# (SEARXNG_SETTINGS_PATH).  Read the remarks in [1] carefully and don't forget to
# rebuild instance's environment (make buildenv) if needed.  The settings.yml
# file of an already installed instance is shown by::
#
#     $ ./utils/searx.sh --help
#     ---- SearXNG instance setup (already installed)
#       SEARXNG_SETTINGS_PATH : /etc/searxng/settings.yml
#       SEARX_SRC             : /usr/local/searx/searx-src
