Drupal on Ubuntu

with one comment

Drupal is arguably one of the most widely used CMS (Content Management Systems). The community documentation for installing it under Ubuntu is very out of date and grossly overcomplicated (I should find some time to fix that), so here are some instructions on installing Drupal 7 on Ubuntu Server 12.04.

(I am assuming that you already have installed Apache and MySQL. If you need help with that, read this and this. Also, for now I am ignoring the configuration of Postfix, just configure it as a local system)

  1. install Drupal 7: sudo apt-get install drupal7
  2. allow it to configure the database with dbconfig-common
  3. sudo cp /etc/drupal/7/apache2.conf /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/drupal.conf
  4. restart Apache (sudo service apache2 restart)
  5. complete the installation of drupal by visiting http://<yourwebsite>/drupal7/install.php (personally I choose the minimal install)
