Welcome to Ægir

NOTE: This documentation is specific to Ægir 5.x, hosted and developed at https://gitlab.com/aegir/aegir.

Ægir is a framework for hosting and managing websites and other applications.

Ægir is built as a Drupal distribution, making it both easy to self-host, integrate with other tools and services, and extend with plugins, themes or custom code.

Ægir version 5 documented here is a full re-write using Drupal 8. It is still a prototype, and thus not yet fully functional. Aegir 3.x remains the supported release for the foreseeable future.

Check out http://aegir.hosting/ for more information. Professional support, training, consulting and other services are offered by the Ægir Cooperative.

This documentation is designed primarily for the following audiences:

  • Users: those looking to use Ægir to install and manage a website or other supported application.
  • Administrators: those looking to host Ægir on their own infrastructure.
  • Developers: those looking to add new features, enhance or fix bugs in existing ones or otherwise extend Ægir.
