Workflow Best Practice

5 hours 7 min ago
pI am struggling to define a best practice workflow for site development, testing and deployment with Aegir. I have read as much as I could find on the topic, but I don't believe I have found the holy grail. I understand the following to be true:/p plt;/p pulgt; liProduction and development should be on different platforms./li/ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/workflow-best-practice target=_blankread more/a/p

pI am very new to Aegir, trying to import my custom site on Omega8. I am able to verify, but when I try to migrate, I get The external command could not be executed due to an application error.

Minimum version of Drush for Aegir2?

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 18:25
pWhat is the minimum version of Drush required by Aegir 2.x?/p pI found two hints, with contradictions:/p pThe Aegir 2.0 release note (a href=http://community.aegirproject.org/2.0 title=http://community.aegirproject.org/2.0http://community.aegirproject.org/2.0/a) mentions Drush 5.5 as minimum for Aegir 2.x./p pOn the other side, the install manual (a href=http://community.aegirproject.org/installing/debian title=http://community.aegirproject.org/installing/debianhttp://community.aegirproject.org/installing/debian/a) says I can run an automatic install on Wheezy, without any manual step. Hence Debian Wheezy has Drush 5.4 in stable repository, this indicates as Drush 5.4 as minimum for Aegir 2.x./p pWhich doc is the correct one?/ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/minimum-version-drush-aegir2 target=_blankread more/a/p

Best way to handle a domain change for the Aegir box?

Wed, 03/12/2014 - 04:31
pHi all,/p pI looked for relevant issues but it's possible I missed one, so I apologize in advance if so./p pA while ago, I set up an Aegir box for a client, where the base domain was xyz dot com and hostamaster was at host.xyz dot com. The Aegir box has about 30 sites at *.xyz dot com. Recently, the client changed their domain to abc dot com and created an A record pointing to the Aegir box. Needless to say, things aren't working properly, since Aegir has a bunch of site definitions and Apache configurations referencing xyz dot com not abc dot com./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/best-way-handle-domain-change-aegir-box target=_blankread more/a/p

Inconsitency between drushrc and vhost file for database server

Wed, 02/19/2014 - 20:04
pUpon migrating a site to a new platform the migration failed into an unrecoverable via Aegir state. The migration had moved all of the files but did not update the drushrc or vhost file. I was forced to manually delete the site, including the drushrc and vhost file both on server_master and my production server, and then reimport by replacing the exisiting settings.php file with a bare-bones one. The site imported like a champ and it is working fine./p pHowever, the drushrc file states that the database is localhost whereas the vhost file shows it pointing at our production db host./ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/inconsitency-between-drushrc-and-vhost-file-database-server target=_blankread more/a/p

Bug When Make File Is Empty

Tue, 02/04/2014 - 06:41
pI recently tried to create a platform with a .make file that was identified by Aeger as empty. The Platform node was created but the platform was unusable./p pWhen I tried to delete the platform, Aegir refused because the platform directory did not contain a valid Drupal installation. The question then is how to delete this platform?/p

PHP5 Curl Library Required on Aegir Server

Sun, 02/02/2014 - 01:38
pI did a manual Aegir server installation (because the automated install would not work for me). I did not notice that the instructions stated that the server should have the PHP5 Curl library installed. Apparently, that library is necessary for the installation of some modules (e.g., the Amex payment module for Drupal Commerce)./p pPerhaps the installation instructions should be updated./p

What causes Aegir to change a site's database name?

Fri, 01/24/2014 - 21:14
pOften when migrating a site to a new platform I've noticed Aegir will change the name of the database, either to append or remove '_0' to it. What causes this to happen?/p pI'd like to stop it if possible, as there is external software trying to access the databases of certain sites and the database name changes are messing with it./p pAlso, sorry if this has already been answered somewhere else, searching the Interwebs in general, and this site and Drupal.org in particular, didn't lead to any answers./p

Where is aegir mysql password stored?

Tue, 01/14/2014 - 15:25
pHi,/p pI am using aegir 1.x. I can access db via phpmyadmin without any password. This was setup by someone else and he is not here anymore. I need to carry out db import work from command line because the file is too big for web interface. But I cannot find the mysql login details that aegir uses. Unfortunately noone knows the mysql root password either./p pDoes anyone knows where I can find this detail on the server? I can login to both apache server and sql server as root./p pDoes aegir use the mysql root account to handle db?/ppa href=http://community.aegirproject.org/discuss/where-aegir-mysql-password-stored target=_blankread more/a/p
