How to setup drush aliases for your Drupal 8/9 website

Submitted by abhaisasidharan on Wed, 10/13/2021 - 15:58

Firstly, make sure you have ssh access to the server (dev, test and/or prod). Your ssh command looks something like this: ssh user@your-website.com or ssh user@100.230.222.122. Drush alias works by using this username and domain/ip address combination to login to the server and execute the command and then return back to your command line. In your project root, create a drush folder and inside it, create a sites folder. Now you put your site alias config in that folder.

Why I decided to use Scaleway to host my Drupal website?

This website https://abh.ai has been hosted on almost all of the major players in the cloud hosting business. I started out with Scaleway around 7 years ago when they were providing these small ARM options with 20GB SSD. It was the cheapest solution back then costing less than 5€. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a good solution. It was excellent! It was fast and reliable. But because it was ARM and at the time a 32-bit processor, many things like docker could not be properly installed. This is why I decided to look for alternatives, which eventually brought me back to Scaleway!

An API first distribution and a responsive Angular Single Page App using Angular material. Acephalous provides an Angular front-end and an API first Drupal back-end. Routing has been made simpler here by using the same routes from Drupal rather than re-inventing the wheel. Routing takes place in the Routing component in the Angular Single Page App. The purpose of this distribution is to create a fast, secure and small front end application while keeping all the Drupal 8 goodness like SEO, responsive images, routing, multilingual, easy content authoring, views. Basically Drupal acts like an smart content source and a JavaScript framework renders it.
