Status: This Page is Glorious History!

The content of this page either is bit-rotted, or has lost its reason to exist due to some new features having been implemented in MusicBrainz, or maybe just described something that never made it in (or made it in a different way), or possibly is meant to store information and memories about our Glorious Past. We still keep this page to honor the brave editors who, during the prehistoric times (prehistoric for you, newcomer!), struggled hard to build a better present and dreamed of an even better future. We also keep it for archival purposes because possibly it still contains crazy thoughts and ideas that may be reused someday. If you're not into looking at either the past or the future, you should just disregard entirely this page content and look for an up to date documentation page elsewhere.

MusicBrainz has a sandbox server, called rika and accessible from subdomains of mbsandbox.org, where MusicBrainz contributors can request an account to show off their work and allow others to test it as part of the code review process.

Status

musicbrainz_db_static
2013-01-12 data dump; connect as user musicbrainz for read/write access (but make your own DB if you're going to do anything dangerous data-wise!)
musicbrainz_db_slave
running as expected; connect as user musicbrainz for read only access
potentially-needed updates
If your server is still running pre-Plack, ping Leftmost to change your config to use FCGI
If you're missing dependencies, run 'carton install --deployment' and it'll likely be fixed

Existing Sandboxes

Sandboxes (potentially) running (these could be running just about anything, though!):

Getting an account

To get a sandbox of your very own, you should contact Leftmost one of these ways:

  • via the MusicBrainz website, editor Leftmost Cat
  • via IRC, Leftmost on FreeNode (come say hi in #musicbrainz or #metabrainz, while you're at it!)
