pI'm hosting my sites at omega8 and I've been provisioning them through the regular hostmaster site./p
pI now would like to use a custom website in order to provision and manage my websites (create, edit, delete, flush cache, disable, add/edit/delete aliases etc...)./p
pI've been in touch with omega8 support team and they told me all of what could be told over support mails, I guess now my questions are getting out of the scope of support requests and since I can't find much documentation on precisely what I want to do I'm asking it here: What is the architecture I should put in place/ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/how-have-custom-site-provision-websites target=_blankread more/a/p
pI have installed BOA. It looks very nice. I used Virtualmin before and heard so many great things about BOA I tried it.
My question is that creating virtual servers (domains) in Virtualmin is very easy and one domain can have as many user mailboxes as needed.
How to do the same with BOA? How to connect to the BOA mail server from an external email client? What are the SMTP/POP3/IMAP configuration?
If no similar mail services, what would be the best solution?
Can Virtualmin run alongside BOA?
I installed _EXTRA_LIST with VMN (Webmin)./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/virtual-mailboxes-additional-clients-same-domain-set-boa target=_blankread more/a/p
pWhen I try to clone or migrate my side, there is a warning that the standard profile is missing./p
pStrangely enough, there are two entries in the row - one time it is ticked of and one time it is declared as missing./p
pCloning or migrating still works well and no problems appear afterwards./p

pI know this might be a little off topic. I have installed Aegir on Arch Linux and I had no issues with the installation. Everything works except the tasks are not executed. They refresh every 20Seconds as I have set it up, however they are not executed. I beleive this is because the Hosting queue daemon is not running./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/installing-hosting-queue-daemon-arch-linux target=_blankread more/a/p
pI'm moving my sites to a new server.
- I have a fresh Aegir 2.1 (with nginx)
- I've moved old d7 platform (without sites) from an Aegir 1.9 setup to the 2.1, verified the it and can create new sites on it.
- I've created a backup in aegir on the old server and transferred it across, and I'm using provision deploy to restore the backup to the moved platform. You know the drill.
- Provision save and deploy on a site appear to work without a hitch./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/backup-and-deploy-new-server-creating-default-object-empty-value-warning-cant-verify target=_blankread more/a/p
the idea is to protect access to website with password if visitor is not coming from local IP (192.168.1.xxx).
So I tried on Quickstart (doesn't have Aegir, Drush only) to set following in .htaccess:
div class=codeblockcodeAuthName quot;Username and password requiredquot;br /nbsp; AuthUserFile /home/quickstart/websites/mytestsite/.htpasswdbr /nbsp; AuthType Basicbr /nbsp; Require valid-userbr /nbsp; Order Deny,Allowbr /nbsp; Deny from allbr /nbsp; Allow from 192.168.1.br /nbsp; Satisfy Any/code/div
And this works.
Now I tried to add this in .htaccess in platform root on server where Aegir is installed but it didn't work./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/htaccess-password-and-ip-protection-doesnt-work-aegir target=_blankread more/a/p
pI ran some system updates a while back which took my sites offline. After much effort, I upgraded aegir to 2.1 (as well as a number of other things) and got the sites back online. The web front end was still offline though, but I figured I'd solve that later. Well, later is now, and while trying to figure out why it's offline, I discovered that the aegir database is gone! No wonder the site won't load./p
pNot sure where to start./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/hosting-front-end-offline-after-upgrade-database-gone target=_blankread more/a/p
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
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=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/planning-vm-sizes-terms-gb-harddrive-hub-and-spoke target=_blankread more/a/p
