The Aegir team is pleased to announce the second preview (alpha) release of the Aegir 2.x branch, after nearly 3 months of development since our first alpha release. We've squashed a number of tenacious bugs, added some nifty features, and made some important improvements to our API. We expect at least one more alpha release before we call a feature-freeze, and begin out stabilizing and cleanup (beta) release cycle.
During this release cycle, we also began work on Aegir 3, a more-or-less straight port of Aegir 2 to Drupal 7.
When trying to run hostmaster-install (v1.9 of aegir) - it fails, complaining about not being able to connect to local mysql socket - even though I have given it a remote mysql server it should install to.
I can verify access is correct, and it did complain when I did not have the correct grant given on the server.
I ran: drush hostmaster-install --aegir_db_host=mysqlserver.example.dk --aegir_db_user=p_aegiruser --verbose --debug
The full output, with --debug and --verbose is here: http://pastie.org/7947477
the only relevant output I can find, is this: SQLSTATE[HY000]  Can
On a fresh Linode slice running Debian 7 I get the following error at the very end.
Setting up aegir-hostmaster (1.9) ...
The drush command '@hostmaster status' could not be found.
I'm attempting to install a site but am receiving the error - DRUPAL_INSTALL_FAILED. Looking at the exceptions object, it seems that the install profile is expecting input. Here is a snippet:

We’re a software company that has a SAAS offering built on top of Drupal. We use (and LOVE) Aegir to manage instance deployments as well as development and deployment workflow. For a while, we’ve had a deployment workflow running smoothly with Aegir, based on the concepts presented by mig5 in his excellent article on the subject http://community.aegirproject.org/article-archive/drupal-deployments-wor...
However, we found that we were spending lots of time manually setting up platforms, waiting for sites to migrate, etc.
While the 'client' feature in Aegir will allow us to limit who can create sites on specific platforms is there a way to limit who can create platforms on specific servers/packs?
I love Aegir. Platforms, install profiles... Pure awesome. We have created a bit of multiplied monster however. With such excitement, we overlooked the email templates. We have about 15 Open Atrium sites created under Aegir using the vanilla install platform/install profile. What we discovered --after the fact-- was that the email notifications emails for node updates did not reflect what we wanted. So, my question is two-fold, how do I change 1. Existing sites email default text for notifications, and 2. Set desired email notification text for new (future sites).
I've been using Aegir for some time, and am quite pleased with it all around. The issue I am trying to deal with is the dreaded email...
I currently host multiple sites on my VPS with aegir, and all the domains point to my VPS. No problems and works great. Thus far, I have avoided doing any type of email setup for these domains, but that needs to change. note: forwarding at the DNS level is not an option for me currently.
Every time I try to migrate a site with the media_youtube or context modules enabled, I get all sorts of funny errors relating to aegirs inability to open the stream. Permissions check out. The eventual trick is to disable, uninstall, clone, enable and reconfigure the modules in question. The aegir logs show the following?
require_once(/var/aegir/platforms/drupal-7.22-prod/sites/myserver.com/modules/media_youtube/includes/MediaYouTubeStreamWrapper.inc): failed to open stream: No such file or directory bootstrap.inc:3080 Drush command terminated abnormally due to an unrecoverable error.
To say short - I have on my local computer: 1. Tar.gz Aegir built-in backup files of sites (folders + sql) 2. Platform files
I created identical platforms by installing new vanilla Drupal and uploaded modules/themes/libraries, verification is ok.
How to restore sites to live Aegir server?
