The DevShop interface.

Open Source Cloud Hosting for Drupal.

Current Version: 0.3.1

Host all of your Drupal projects, with unlimited environments each, on one or many servers. Use the git host of your choice and follow your own branching strategy. Web UI for Deploying Code from any branch or tag, deploy Data from any environment, Commit Features, Run Tests, and more.

Fully featured cloud hosting environment.

Built in Drupal & Drush.


We are moving to Semantic Versioning, and the project has been reorganized.

Development has moved to GitHub:

All the code in this repo is not drupal, so it makes sense to move it. DevMaster and the various drush and contrib projects will remain on

The drupal install profile has been separated from this project as the DevMaster project.

The only way to install DevShop is with the new standalone script. You can read the script and attempt to do it manually if you wish to learn about DevShop.

The script is designed to work on any Debian or RedHat/CentOS server. Please file issues if you have any problems with it.


  1. Pick a domain and server name to use for DevShop, for example ""
  2. Fire up a linux server somewhere, using that domain name as the server's hostname. (Ubuntu 12 or 14 are most likely to work without issue, however we want to support most Linux OS. If you have problems in other OS please submit an issue.)
  3. Add a DNS record that points your domain name ( to your server's IP address.
  4. Add a second DNS record that points a wildcard subdomain of your domain (* to your server's IP address. This allows you to setup new sites without having to mess with DNS every time.
  5. Login to your server as root, and retrieve and run the install script:
    root@devshop:~# wget
    root@devshop:~# bash

NOTE: You have to switch to root and then run the command. There are issues if you try to `sudo`.

Chasing Head

State of Development

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

To track all open issues see #2218539: [META] DevShop 1.0.0 release.

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.
