If you are a bit familiar with Ansible you could use this role to make a production installation of Diaspora. Parallel multiple pods installation is supported.
Define one on more hosts in your inventory file like this:
[diaspora-pods] targetmachine1.net diaspora_url=pod.ofmine.tld targetmachine2.net diaspora_url=anotherpod.ofmine.tld
It is mandatory to provide valid TLS certs. They must be named like pod's public url setted in diaspora_url for example pod.ofmine.crt and pod.ofmine.tld.key.
Create a file called diaspora.yml containing:
- hosts: diaspora-pods roles: - diaspora
Than to install you pods just issue:
$ ansible-playbook diaspora.yml
That's all! Start Dispora as usual (in screen or tmux):
# sudo -i -u diaspora $ ./diaspora/script/server
