Server Team

The TYPO3 Server Administration Team is mostly responsible for management of lower-level services. Besides maintaining the server infrastructure of the TYPO3 project, the team is also in charge of administrating several central services and web sites. We see ourselves as a service provider towards the community and other teams, like the Core Teams or the Documentation Team.

Our tasks

Being a central contact point

The email address admin(at)typo3.org serves as the central point to get in contact with the persons in charge for administration of typo3.org servers and web sites. In case we are not responsible, we will delegate your email to the persons in charge. We make use of OTRS as trouble ticket system for this job.

Server Administration

We use OpenVZ as virtualization infrastructure. In order to keep the servers and their virtual machines up-to-date and their configuration well documented, we make use of Opscode Chef as deployment and configuration management software. If you as a TYPO3 team, or as a single person, want to offer a service to the TYPO3 community, please get in touch with us to offer you some web space or an entire virtual machine.

Email Account Management

While the email infrastructure is sponsored by punkt.de, we are in charge of creating new accounts for members of official TYPO3 teams. Members of such teams have the possibility to get a your.name@typo3.org email address (according to the TYPO3 Association’s rules for email addresses).

Community Sites

While the typo3.org web site itself is maintained by a dedicated team there are a lot of central sites, which are mainly maintained by members of the Server Admin Team.  Please find an incomplete list below.

Sponsors

The official TYPO3 infrastructure relies on volunteer work and also on a sponsored server infrastructure. We would like to thank our graceful sponsors:
