Description: Move files, database, or code from one acquia server to the next and run drush commands. - Yes you can use the gui to do most of these things (not the drush, varnish, memcache stuff) but CLI’s are better! :)
- Task Queue - It will wait until one acquia task process is done before starting another one. This is nice because their might be six or seven acquia tasks that need to be done for any one push and with this deploy tool you only have to initiate the sequence and then “walk away”. If any one of the tasks fail then the queue of tasks is aborted (not rolled back but just halted).
- Command line Automation - While the gui is nice I wanted to be able to execute several tasks at once . This deploy script automates that for you.
Dependencies: - This deploy script depends on valid drush aliases being installed on your acquia server. - You’ll need acquia’s aliases for your sites: https://docs.acquia.com/cloud/drush-aliases - You’ll need acquia’s cloud api for your site: https://insight.acquia.com/cloud/util/download/drush - Only tested with drush 5. - access to acquia network accounts. - ssh keys installed on acquia server and network accounts.
Setup: - Initally you need to setup a deploy process up by saving all the credentials in a configuration file. Then after that you call deploy with the –load parameter and nothing else and it does the rest.
Typical usages after setup:
deploy --load=stage_to_dev_db+files.dep deploy --load=dev_to_stage_code_only.dep deploy --load=dev_to_stage.dep deploy --load=stage_to_prod.dep
Typical setup usage:
Setup for dev_to_stage_db_files.dep deploy --varnish=1 \ --database=1 \ --files=1 \ --memcache=1 \ --drush="vset drupal_stale_file_threshold 1 -y;vset shield_user XXXXXX -y; vset shield_pass XXXXXXX -y; cc all;vset drupal_stale_file_threshold 172800 -y" \ --source=@drush_dev_server_alais \ --dest=@drush_stage_server_alias \ --dest_db=XXXX \ --dest_env=dev \ --dest_host=staging-XXXX.prod.hosting.acquia.com \ --dest_domain=XXXXXdev.prod.acquia-sites.com \ --save=stage_to_dev_db_files.dep
