Abstract

Automation is the name of the game for efficiently maintaining multiple websites and Drupal has the tools to do it! The Ægir hosting system lets you create and manage a site by filling out a form and pressing submit. Is it really this easy? Robin Puga will step through the process of deploying Drupal sites using Ægir as well as review the current state of the project. Robin will also cover some techniques used to deploy complex sites using Install Profiles in Ægir.

This past month, Robin Puga has finished researching and implementing the Ægir hosting system for a project he's been working on through Affinity Bridge. As you may have heard, Ægir (formally known as Hostmaster2) is a set of modules for Drupal which allows you to deploy and maintain other Drupal sites. Yes, that's right Drupal deploying Drupal. Ægir has just had its first major release and big plans for the future. The Ægir hosting system is the work of many developers but particularly Adrian Rossouw now with DevSeed). As Robin likes to put it, "in my recent work I've found the view is pretty amazing standing on the shoulders of giants."

In his presentation, Robin will step through the process of deploying Drupal sites using Ægir as well as review the current state of the project. Robin will also cover some techniques used to deploy complex sites using Install Profiles in Ægir.
