Aegir Serves 404 error during Migrate task before Varnish is restarted

I migrated a site from one platform to another.  In the process, the site went down with a 404 not found error from Apache.  When the Migrate task completed, Apache (not Drupal) still threw a 404 error.  Post 8080 (Apache, behind Varnish) delivered the page.  So I restarted varnish and the site began responding again on port 80.


Hmmm...  Should Varnish be restarted as part of the Migrate task?  Why have I never experienced this with any other Migrate tasks?

Aegir Changes Passwords on Site Migrations

Site passwords change in Apache config files when Aegir site is migrated between platforms.  Only slightly annoying for drush alias file management.

Notes on Aegir Setup and Drupal Installation Profiles

Having setup my first Aegir server and installation profile, here are a few quick notes/links for future reference:

Looking Forward to Development in Drupal (7 and 8) with Git, Drush, and ...Eclipse?

Beginning my Drupal 7 development today with a git clone of drupal, and setting up my local development environment with MAMP and Drush, I am glad to be started with Drupal 7 and excited to have that 8.x branch enticing me on, too.  I know git will help ease the pain of site and multi-site maintenance against the latest Drupal releases, and Drush (4.x) will help blast through build, deployment, and management chores.
