The Aegir Hosting System is a scalable solution for deploying and managing Drupal sites. Aegir automates many common server-side tasks, simplifying install, upgrade, clone, backup and restore operations on Drupal sites and platforms. Sysadmins, developers, and site administrators can all benefit from this.

  • Aegir's components and community
  • Installing, upgrading and debugging Aegir
  • Importing existing sites
  • Building a Drupal platform with Drush Make
  • Customizing and extending Aegir
  • and other advanced topics.

What will you learn?

Participants will learn how to reduce the overhead of maintaining Drupal sites to let developers and sysadmins get on with the business of developing and building great websites.

Using Aegir, time spent administering Drupal sites easily drops by an
order of magnitude. Tasks that would take hours previously, now only
take minutes with the automation that Aegir provides. In addition, the
best-practices that Aegir enforces, along with automatic roll-backs
should any errors be detected, radically improve reliability.
