Local Development

Add New Site

Clone the repository

The next step is to git clone the repository you want to work with in terminal, cd into the folder you would like to clone the repository into e.g. sites, and type git clone along with the repository.

$ git clone git@gitserver.com:dijon/newsite/dijon_site_newsite.git

Add new site to the server

Open up the config folder in the Dijon projects directory and open up the folder localdev, the file to look for is the nginx.conf file. Once you have found that copy and paste one of the existing servers, change the server name to be the name you want (e.g. newsite.local.dijon.host) and change the root to reflect the name of the corresponding site specific folder that you want to work on (e.g. /var/www/sites/dijon_site_newsite/www_frontend).

server {
    server_name site.local.dijon.host;
    listen 8000;
    root /var/www/sites/dijon_site_dijon_site/www_frontend;
    include /etc/config/nginx_server_common.conf;

server {
    server_name new.local.dijon.host;
    listen 8000;
    root /var/www/sites/dijon_site_newsite/www_frontend;
    include /etc/config/nginx_server_common.conf;

Add the site to the hosts database

In the parent directory of your site type the following command:

$ sudo nano /etc/hosts

Add your local site to the list and type Ctrl-X to exit the nano interface.       localhost       computer       admin.dijon.local       site.local.dijon.host       newsite.local.dijon.host

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

The site should now be viewable in the browser e.g. http://newsite.local.dijon.host

Add the site in the admin interface

Add the site to under Admin > Sites and add access to the site for your user under Admin > Users your users list in the admin interface.
