The boss just shot you an email. He wants the user’s profile to get updated whenever that user creates a story node. He also wants to automatically post badges to a user’s profile when their story has been viewed a certain number of times. And you can’t use the statistics module, because it killed his family. Can you have it by this afternoon?

No problem. Hook_nodeapi’s got this.

Aegir is wizardry, pure and simple. Once you’ve got it set up and running there’s almost no excuse not to have all of your sites on it.

There are plenty of great tutorials on moving your existing site into Aegir like Dboettger’s tutorial or Aegir’s Community tutorial but they assume that you’re pretty handy with the command line.

If you don’t feel comfortable with the command line or you don’t want to mess with it you can still pull the migration off.
