    33If a member wants a dedicated IP on one of our shared servers, these are the steps for setting it up.
     4
     5== Tasks that require administrator rights ==
    46
    57 * Allocated the IP by editing the [wiki:ip_allocation] page, putting the member domain name next to the next available IP address.
     
    3840  * Enter the guest and restart any services needing the IP address

    40 == All hosts ==
     42== Tasks that only require member level permissions ==

    42  * Modify the DNS records via the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp members control panel] )DNS service). For advanced users, you should ask them to make this change. Change the IP address of the A records to the new ip (usually this would just be, in the example above, summup.org and www.summup.org). The SSL certificate will typically only apply to these domains - so you don't want to change the IP address of, for example, summup.mayfirst.org.
    43  * Add an ssl record to the web config via the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp members control panel]. For advanced users, you should ask them to make this change. Under web config, click add new item. Be sure to copy and paste the values from the existing web config rather than taking the default values - you want to be sure to include any extras that you might have added (like the drupal AllowOverride lines). Specify the same login as the owner, make it enabled, specify https, for IP address specify the IP address that has been allocated. Finally, add three new lines (Replace chavez with the name of the server the site is hosted on. NOTE: They will need to change these lines after they have purchased an SSL certificate so that they point to their own ssl certificate. These lines are just starters so that it works without an error.)
