========================================= DMSAK - Drupal Multi-Site Admin Kit ========================================= Copyright 2009 António Maria Torre do Valle Web: http://www.torvall.net/ Mail: torvall at gmail dot com Released under the GNU General Public Licence (GPL): http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.html What is this: ============= DMSAK is a group of scripts aimed at easing management of secure Drupal multi-site installations. These tools allow you to create and delete webs and update modules and Drupal code bases automatically. Features: * Fully automates Drupal installation and webs creation; * Handles various Drupal code base versions simultaneously at the same server; * Creates backups automatically; * Easy to use command line syntax. How Drupal multi-site installations work: ========================================= In this model, to have a secure, multi-site setup from a single code base, a directory is created for the web site containing some links to core Drupal code base directories (like misc, modules, themes and sites) and wrappers to the main php files. This approach allows running several sites off the same codebase, and to contain sites data in a single directory. There are other different approaches, some of them are simpler, others, not. This one requires you to have a different virtual host for each web. Read more about multi-site installs here: http://drupal.org/node/43816 and here: http://justinhileman.info/blog/2007/06/a-more-secure-drupal-multisite-install Using the kit: ============== To start, copy example-dmsak.cfg to dmsak.cfg and set there the values to match your setup. If you wish to "install" the kit, simply copy the scripts to a directory on your $PATH (ex: /usr/local/bin) and the configuration file (dmsak.cfg) to /etc. The scripts can be run from any directory, and will look for the config in the current working folder (./dmsak.cfg), the current users home (~/dmsak.cfg) or /etc/dmsak.cfg (in that order). Failing all that, it will use default values (you can check the values that will be used by default using the "-h" option). IMPORTANT: In order for these scripts to work, Drupal's code base directory must be named "drupal-X" where X is the version number. If you already have an existing code base installed, you may need to rename it. Website directories must match the website URL (with or without "www"). The upmodule.sh script updates the module either at the code base directory (drupal-X/sites/all/modules), or the web directory (example.com/sites/example.com/modules). The mkweb.sh script appends a rewrite rule directive to .htaccess to map the long "sites/example.com/files" to simply "files". Go to admin/settings/file-system to set the files directory path to point to "files". Notes: ====== This is still an early release and many features are still missing (including BD support). DMSAK is not intended to be a replacement for modules like Drush (http://drupal.org/project/drush). This kit is only aimed at maintaining multi-site setups easily. These scripts were only tested with versions 5 and 6 of Drupal. If you tested other versions, please send me some feedback (versions tested, issues, etc.) More info: ========== To get more information about DMSAK, please go to http://www.torvall.net/ Alternatively, you can contact me by email at torvall at gmail dot com.
