Which Linux flavour to choose?


Found VPS provider for aegir instalation (up to 15 D6-D7 sites, 1/2 of them corporate brochure type), it will be openVZ with guaranteed 2048Mb RAM, mysql+php+apc+apache+smtp, and other basic services, maybe Apache Solr. Memcahed/Nginx/Varnish is a possibility if performance benefits over simple Boost module+APC are worth pain having another service on same vps.

Which linux to choose from this list:

CentOS 4
CentOS 5
CentOS 6
Debian 4
Debian 5
Debian 6
Fedora 14
Fedora 15
openSUSE 11.3
openSUSE 11.4
Ubuntu 10.04

Clone and verify hang. anyway to debug?

I have created a site based on open atrium.
i can create an openatrium site based on the distribution through aegir
I add and configure modules to the created site.

When I clone the site,
1. backup created
2. vhost file created
3. database is created
4. i can access the site through the url

but the clone task never terminates
I also do not get a site entry in aegir
Is there a way to debug this? I don't get any entries from the backend provision anywhere? Is there a way that error messages can be written to the clone log once the provision-verify script is written?

LINODE + Omega8... seems to have frozen

I installed omega8 aegir on linode about two weeks ago. Installation went great, much better than the other hosting companies I have tried. Great platform. I am able to setup new sites with little trouble.

But I have noticed some issues.
1... Sometimes a "create site" task will not complete and time out. But I resubmit the task and eventually the entire task will finish. I suspect adding extra hosting resources would resolve this issue.

2... This is a big issue. I had tried to add 3 sites, all using subdomains of a primary domain. - OPENPublish

Aegir Alpha15. Create Site: When SSL is selected, all platforms removed

Hello all:

Not sure if this is a bug or a misconfiguration, though it appears to be the first one to me.

I upgraded to Alpha15, which went fantastically well. Felt like a Barracuda experience.

Testing around I noticed the following two-fold issue:

When creating a site (either in local or remote server) and the "SSL" option is selected -Enabled or Required- all the installation profiles and available platforms disappear and get replaced with a "No Valid Choices". Unselecting "SSL" does not revert back and so I must click "Create Site" again.

Aegir cron queue not running. How to fix?


Aegir task cron runs as expected.

But individual site crons are not running.

I looked at my setup under hosting >queues

while my takss queue runs as expected my cron queue has not run for several weeks.
How can I force this to happen?

su - aegir
crontab -e

*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/aegir/drush/drush.php --php=/usr/bin/php '@hostmaster' hosting-dispatch

I tried per troubleshooting instructions to reset cron:

Help with i18n multilingual variables in

Since settings.php gets overwritten during migrations or verifications I want to put the i18n variables into, but only apply them if i18n is enabled.

I've put the following code into

if (module_exists('i18n')) {
    $conf['i18n_variables'] = array(

As soon as I save the change, though, I get this WSOD error on all sites:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function module_exists() in /var/aegir/config/includes/ on line 23

Any idea why that is?

Can't execute certain commands on sites/platforms anymore

Hello all,

I had a hard time to upgrade a site from 5.7 to 5.23 to 6.15 to 6.19 now.
I did this outside of Aegir, but tried it several times, to do it within Aegir.
Now it seems as if I have messed up my Aegir installation somehow :(

I have the site which I don't want to have anymore, so I click on delete and get:
The external command could not be executed due to an application error.

Then I want to disable / delte the platform and get:
The external command could not be executed due to an application error.
