As the title suggests we have Drupal hosted behind a reverse proxy. Usually this doesn't matter a lot, but there are few things like IP-blocking or oauth that need to know some data about original request. Namely that's: The client-IP, whether the request was issued via HTTPS and the server port. Here is how to achieve that.
Here at more onion we're hosting most of our client's sites ourselves. This means we are hosting lots of sites which share most of their modules (ie. our standard Drupal installation). Reproducible setups, fast builds, sharing-module code among many sites -- This is where our new build-tool called dbuild.py comes in.
It started out as yet another wrapper around
drush site-installbut became a fully fledged download-extract-patch-symlink tool in the end.
