When you create a new site in Aegir it creates the a directory using the sitename in the corresponding platform. So if the site name is example.com the path for the site will be /var/aegir/platforms/platform_name/sites/example.com/.

Is there a way to create the site in a different directory, like: /var/aegir/platforms/platform_name/sites/my_awsome_path/?

Using a different sitename would be your best option. You could then add an alias for the real sitename.

  • Thanks it works on normal environments (+1 for that). But I tried on my environment and confuses the NLB and the SSL :(

  • Just the occurrence of the site name in a directory path is causing the problem? Then I would expect an alias to work fine for you. Feb 11, 2016 at 19:41
