Over the weekend I have been fighting attempted and/or successful attacks on the liquibase.org site. I’m still trying to figure out if the problem is wordpress or dokuwiki or something else.
In the meantime, however, it is probably a good opportunity to re-evaluate how the site hosting works. Currently I have a cheap godaddy shared server for dokuwiki and wordpress, with jira and this forum on SAAS providers. I’m not a huge fan of godaddy, but it has the advantage of being cheap since I am paying for it personally. The best options would be some other SAAS that would host the main site and blog for free like atlassian and zoho does.
We have dokuwiki primarily based on the request a few years ago to have translations of the documentation available. The person who suggested it has been maintaining the Japanese version of the documentation and doing a great job of that, but no other languages have really caught on. I suspect that is because english works well enough for most people and that maintaining a translation is a very difficult burden for anyone to take on for themselves.
That being said, I would definitely not be against going for a different wiki/cms system for the website, but would like to know what everyone wants and does not care about for functionality.
One option I have looked at is pages.github.com. That appears to be static pages, so we would lose the wiki aspect of the site, but I’m not sure if that would be a big loss since most documentation changes end up going through jira bug reports or forum suggestion changes anyway.
Does anyone have suggestions of hosting or apps I should be looking at?
