The fastest way to install DevShop is with the new install.debian.sh script. This script works on debian servers, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS recommended.

To run this script you need:

  1. A server with a hostname that is also a fully-qualified-domain. (ie. devshop.myserver.com)
  2. A DNS record that points your domain name to your server's IP.

Once you have that, login as root, and run the following command:

wget http://getdevshop.com/install.debian
sudo sh install.debian

The only question you will have to answer is the Postfix configuration. The default options are fine: Internet Host for "General server purpose" and devshop.myserver.com for "System mail name", so just hit ENTER when asked.

NOTE: This script was meant to be run on a brand new Ubuntu server. Do not run it on an existing server unless you know what you are doing.


There is now a vagrantfile for DevShop that makes for an easy way to test it out and to contribute to the development of DevShop. See http://github.com/drupaldevshop/devshop_vagrant for more information.


DevShop consists of a number of other projects:

DevShop Core

  • DevShop - Debian install script, drush make file and installation profile for the front-end.
  • DevShop Provision - The backend (drush) tools powering DevShop
  • DevShop Hosting - The front-end interface for DevShop
  • Provision Git - Provides Drush-based git commands.

DevShop Contrib

  • Aegir Drush Aliases - Allows easy downloading of Drush Aliases for the Drupal sites hosted on a DevShop server.
  • Aegir File Manager - Provides a file browser for projects hosted on DevShop.
  • Aegir Logs - Organizes and exposes PHP error logs to developers.
  • Aegir Solr - Allows easy deployment of Solr cores for each site hosted on a DevShop server.
  • Aegir Tasks Extra - Provides common tasks like Cache Clear, Registry Rebuild, Run Updates and Run Cron.

State of Development

DevShop is in rapid development. We are working hard to reach a 1.0 release, however it is a stable system.

DevShop has been used by a large development team with many projects since early 2012. It is currently functional, relatively stable, and very useful.


The supported hostmaster and provision branch is 6.x-1.x.
The installation script inside this project will setup DevShop with the correct Aegir version.

DevShop & Aegir can currently host Drupal 5, 6, and 7 sites. Drupal 8 is coming soon with Aegir & DevShop 2.0.


ThinkDrop Consulting, the creators of DevShop, are available for paid support, installation, or simply questions. Feel free to contact any of the committers in IRC in the #aegir or #devshop chatrooms, or contact us at http://thinkdrop.net/contact.
