remove install notes, uploaded on the community site

we keep the 2.x hacking notes as they should be edited further in the future
parent ea259219
This document summarizes issues I have found while working offline on
Aegir 2.x on june 2012. It should be posted as a blog or something.
Install notes
Those are notes from a manual install of Aegir 2.x using the Nginx
backend. I have taken those notes instead of filing bugs as this work
was done offline.
use sudo instead of su
use the following instead of su aegir:
sudo -u aegir -H /bin/bash
install drush through PEAR
we should follow Arch linux's lead and install drush through PEAR, as
it is upstream's suggestion.
aegir 2.x modifications
1. install drush 5 instead of drush 4 (should be in the docs)
2. we don't depend on drush make anymore, as it's in drush 5 core!!
make sure we change the hostmaster-install help and process at the
very least (done?)
other issues
* we should not talk about using a makefile if the hostmaster platform
already exists
* the aegir config file generates this nginx error:
nginx on localhost could not be restarted. Changes might not be available until this has been done. [warning]
(error: Reloading nginx configuration: nginx: [emerg] "error_log" directive is duplicate in
* install error:
The hosting_platform_pathauto module is required but was not found. Please move it into the modules [error]
(fixed by removing said module, would need to be merged in)
* the nginx config file is way too big, it sets policy, like hiding
headers, SSL performance, gzip compression, size limits and so
on. those do not belong in an aegir configuration file, and should
at least be optional. the fastcgi_params are also duplicate of a
file in /etc/nginx.conf
(work started in the dev-nginx-cleanup branch)
* out of the box, nginx shows "bad gateway" error when following the
login link - fix:
diff --git a/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf b/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf
index 28a0651..e6d552d 100644

not sure how to fix this
* the nginx includes may fail on remote servers because
/var/aegir/config/includes may not be rsync'd to remote servers
* the nginx advanced and simple configuration are almost exactly the
same minus about 10 lines of diff - they should include each other
instead of duplicating stuff
(fixed in cleanup branch)
things i forgot
* forgot to clone pkg-drush
* forgot to install the nginx-doc package
* forgot to install ab or siege (crap)
offline hacks
I had to go through a few hoops to make this work offline. To install
drush, i worked from a previous clone I had lying around:
sudo aegir -H git clone ~anarcat/src/drush
sudo ln -s /var/aegir/drush/drush /usr/local/bin/drush
And the same for provision:
sudo aegir -H git clone ~anarcat/src/provision .drush/provision --branch 6.x-2.x
Then for the frontend (trickier), I had to fiddle around with also a
previously existing hostmaster platform:
git clone ~anarcat/src/drupal hostmaster-6.x-2.x --branch 6.26
git clone ~anarcat/src/hostmaster hostmaster-6.x-2.x/profiles/hostmaster --branch 6.x-2.x
cd hostmaster-6.x-2.x/profiles/hostmaster
cp -a ~/hostmaster-6.x-1.x/profiles/hostmaster/modules/{admin_menu,install_profile_api,jquery_ui,modalframe,openidadmin} modules
