Tutorial In a Nutshell
I'm not going over the details here as we mostly follow the manual instructions on the Aegir website. There're just a few things to keep in mind here.
First of all, make sure your hostname in /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname only has lower case letters (you can check this by running hostname and hostname -f commands in the terminal).
Additionally, if you're installing on the local server (such as using Virtualbox, for example), the IP for your domain name in /etc/hosts should be 127.0.0.1 (it's probably going to be 127.0.1.1 by default).
