Irregularities in terms of temp folder recognition for new sites from HUB to SPOKE

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 19:00
pI started to try the HUB and SPOKE Model - whereby I would initiate sites on the HUB - to be synced to the SPOKE. Now there is one thing that seems a bit odd: The temp directory is never recognised correctly. So many of the installations do not work correctly./p pEverything is fine after going to file systems page and saving one time. The entry on this page is actually correct./p pAny thoughts? Never had this? on a single server aegis instance./p

Planning of VM Sizes in terms for GB for Harddrive for HUB and Spoke

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 18:56
pDear All,/p pI am currently setting up a network of AEGIR-controlled serves, using a hub and spoke architecture./p pIf I understand it right, everything goes through the HUB, so the HUB has to have the size in GB for the maximum size of backup file I wanted to import to one of the Spokes./p pAfter IMPORT, would the size be deleted from the HUB again? Otherwise importing sites might be prohibitiv./p pIf I work on a site under crush, would I always do so from the HUB? as the sites are there, too?/ppa href= target=_blankread more/a/p

First Site on Platform

Can I Install a Non-Drupal Site on My Aegir Server

Fri, 05/16/2014 - 00:17
pI have an Aegir 2.0 installation that is working well. Currently, I host only drupal sites on the server and all the sites are managed by Aegir./p pI have a need to test something that requires me to install non-drupal software on the server. I would like to install it in /var/www. Can I do so without messing up my Aegir installation? If so, I assume that I must create a vhost entry somewhere to point the test domain to /var/www. Is there documentation on how to do this?/p

Domain Email Server Suggestions

Mon, 05/12/2014 - 05:43
pI am currently using Aegir to run 6 small drupal websites from Linode. Previously, I have used Windows Live Admin center to run my domain email, but that service is being shutdown./p pI do not like the idea of running my own email server, but I also don't like the idea of paying $5/month/user for Google or Office 360. I'm considering purchasing Bluehost hosting again, just so they can handle my webmail, but I would keep my aegir running on Linode./p pDoes anyone have suggestions on how they setup their domain email for the sites they run on Aegir?/p
