These are the installation instructions that are recommended on Debian. Aegir dependencies (Apache, MySQL, PHP…) are also automatically installed. If you are managing the installation from a remote Windows computer, well-known open source tools for this task are for example PuTTY (a SSH client for command line), and WinSCP (a SFTP client with easy text file editing).
If you wish to install Debian packages over an existing manual install, it's possible. See the Debian upgrade procedures.
Debian packages are uploaded to http://debian.aegirproject.org/ shortly after a release. We eventually want to upload those packages to the official archives, but this will take some adaptation and time to sponsor the packages in.
1. Adding the project repositories
Use this command to add the Aegir package "Software Source" repository to your system:
echo "deb http://debian.aegirproject.org stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aegir-stable.list
To install other versions, see the developer instructions for the debian package.
2. Adding the archive key to your keyring
This repository self-signs packages uploaded to it (and packages uploaded are verified against a whitelist of trusted uploaders) using OpenPGP (GnuPG, to be more precise).
Use these commands to download and add the repository's PGP key, then update the package list on your system:
wget -q http://debian.aegirproject.org/key.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add - Continue reading “apt-get drush install on Debian” »
