I would like to use the hosting tool Aegir to install this distribution from a make file directly:


what is the "workaround" to be able to insert the above URL as a string in Aegir platform make file field here:

Create Platform

I have tried a lot of distributions but all failed.

Unfortunately the Drush Make infra does not support this use-case well.

The quickest wordaround is to clone the project Git repository and provide a local path to the makefile in the Aegir UI.

For elmsmedia I guess the best makefile would be http://cgit.drupalcode.org/elmsmedia/tree/local.make.example

OpanAtrium has http://cgit.drupalcode.org/openatrium/tree/build-openatrium.make for this same purpose.

  • thanks, I have tried to use the OpenAtrium make file, maybe it's my outdated version of Aegir, but it didn't work like expected: awesomescreenshot.com/image/221652/…
