Acquia Dev Cloud Gotchas

The Acuia Dev Cloud is a great service for hosting Drupal sites, giving you Drupal specific management stuff via the GUI and turning many of the standard workflow tasks from CLI to GUI. Unfortunately, the docs and support are a little scant as they are still being developed and can leave you feeling pretty isolated if you get a problem. Being propitiatory, the systems and techniques are not widely known and not much community stuff is out there. Here are a few of the main gotchas that I found moving from a standard Drupal infrastructure (e.g. Dedicated server, VPS or shared server) to the Dev Cloud. They may be obvious to some but maybe will help others.

  1. The Acquia file directory structure is a little different and what would normal be your Dupalroot is now docroot, this all within the sites root along with a couple of other Acquia specific folders.
  2. Your files directory is stored in a different location automagically on Acquias network when you import your site. It is then symlinked to you standard drupal_root/sites/[site]/files directory. To upload new files you must scp or sftp them - uri’s can be found under sites & logs. So if you use git like me, you will find an entry excluding files within .gitignore stopping them being added to your repo.
  3. Only tags & branches show in the code drop down list on the workflow page NOT commits when pushing code to the dev cloud from your local environment. This means that if you want to commit a change to the Dev Cloud and want to see that change by checking out code to your Workflow dev site for example, you need to use 'git tag mytweak' followed by ‘git push –tags’ to get the tag to show in the code drop down.

As I find more things worth noting I’ll post 'em.
