Nginx is more performant than Apache, if you are interested in setting Aegir up using nginx Brian Gilbert from Realityloop has created a script to install everything that you need on a clean Mac (not already running anything on port 80), see OSX Aegir Installer on github.

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
