I've got an out-of-the-box AEgir installation (Apache2, MySQL) running on Debian on a VirtualBox machine. I'd like to move the site data directories off the virtual drive onto my host's drive and use VirtualBox's shared folders to access them.

Which directories do I need to move?

/var/aegir/platforms is already on the host.

/var/lib/mysql holds the sites, so I will move that.

/var/aegir/clients would also need to be moved.

Are there any others?

/var/aegir/config and /var/aegir/backups

Or you could just move the entire /var/aegir/ tree
