  2. 2. What is Aegir S Aegir is a set of Drupal modules that helps you maintain your Drupal sites. S Provides you with a simple Drupal based hosting front end for your entire network of sites S It deployes the new site as a new node. So to create a site you need to create a new site node.
  3. 3. History of Aegir S Aegir was Developed initially by rain city studios and now the development is headed by development seed. It is head by Adrian Rossouw S Adrian is a senior developer at Development Seed. He is the father of Aegir, a set of contributed modules useful for hosting and managing huge numbers of Drupal sites.A Great Contribution to the Community.
  4. 4. Requirement for Aegir S The instructions are mentioned on install.txt file ,we would go into details of Architecture S Your Own Linux server or a VPS ( 512 RAM min) as configuration requires you to have root permissions. S System requirement is same as to use Drupal as it is based completely on Drupal. S Vps Running Apache.We would work here with Apache 2, But the Script is compatible with apache 1.x too.It also works well with Nginx S Php 5.2- As Aegir would use drush, we would require php 5.2 and above S Mysql would be the database server S Would require MTA(mail Transfer agent) like Sendmail,postfix. This is required to send emails when you add new sites. S Other Utilities like : sudo,git and unzip is required because your script would get installed directly from git. As a jquery library is used Unzip is essential to extract
  5. 5. Step-1 S Set up wild card dns for your domain , Enter a new A Record  eg * A S apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-cli php5-mysql mysql- server postfix S apt-get install sudo git-core unzip( to install aegir from git) Install all the packages Required: The Lamp stack
  6. 6. Step-2- Aegir User S The provision framework would require script to be run as non-root user for security and would have all file permissions to be safe, so we need a non root user here S adduser --system --group --home /var/aegir aegir S adduser aegir www-data This ensures that the file permissions on the hosted sites are always safe
  7. 7. Step-3 Apache Config S The Rewrite module should be enabled and apache must be configured to include aegir vhost path to read configurations S a2enmod rewrite S echo "Include /var/aegir/config/vhost.d/" > /etc/apache2/conf.d/aegir
  8. 8. Step 4-Database Configuration S Login to mysql -p S CREATE DATABASE aegir; S GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, S CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES ON aegir.* TO S 'aegir'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY ’testing';
  9. 9. Step 5-Install Script S;a=blob_plain;f=install. sh.txt;hb=hostmaster-0.4-alpha5 ( Change the URL for your domain name ) S su -s /bin/sh aegir –c "sh /var/tmp/" S apt-get install php-pear ( Drush broken error) S pear install Console_Table S cp /usr/share/php/Console/Table.php /var/aegir/drush/includes/ S /etc/init.d/apache2 restart Download from pear is broken; Critical bug has been submitted, Immediate fix Is To install pear console table and copy it into your standard install
