Deploying and maintaining multiple websites is a job crying out for automation. For Drupal CMS users there’s an open-source answer, the Aegir hosting system. Get a first hand account of implementing Aegir and using it to manage and deploy websites from a single code base at the next meeting of the Vancouver Drupal User Group.
Automation is the name of the game for efficiently maintaining multiple websites and Drupal has the tools to do it! The Aegir 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 Aegir 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 Aegir.
The meeting is Thursday April 23, 6:30pm at Raincity Studios, 1 Alexander Street, Suite 400 in Gastown. There is no charge to attend and all are welcome. More information available online.
