The Aegir system
================

The Aegir hosting system allows developers and site administrators to
automate many of the common tasks associated with deploying and
managing large websites. Aegir makes it easy to install, upgrade,
deploy, and backup an entire network of Drupal sites.

The most up to date information regarding the project and its goals
can be found on the Aegir website and the community portal:

   http://aegirproject.org
   http://community.aegirproject.org

This is the backend of the Aegir hosting system. The front end
(hostmaster) and the backend (provision) are designed to be run
separately, and each front end is able to drive multiple back
ends. Aegir can install itself with the software you have already
downloaded alongside this readme file.

To install Aegir, you should follow the instructions at:

   http://community.aegirproject.org/installing
   
To upgrade Aegir, follow the instructions at:

   http://community.aegirproject.org/upgrading
