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

http://cgit.drupalcode.org/elmsmedia/plain/drupal-org.make

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.

thanks

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  • thanks, I have tried to use the OpenAtrium make file, maybe it's my outdated version of Aegir, but it didn't work like expected: awesomescreenshot.com/image/221652/… – Mauro May 14 '15 at 4:17

    What did you priovide as a makefile path? /tmp/myopenatriumclone/build-openatrium.make – Herman van Rink May 15 '15 at 7:45

  • Which Aegir and Drush versions do you have? – Herman van Rink May 19 '15 at 17:39
  • ah of course!! i have Drush 4.6-dev and Aegir BOA-2.0.8. they must be too outdated, right? – Mauro May 20 '15 at 0:05
