This installation profile makes it possible to quickly set up a complex site for a specific use in fewer steps than installing and configuring elements individually. It also populates the Drupal database with necessary settings, allowing an administrator to begin harvesting library metadata immediately after installing Drupal.
News: the first 7.x version is released!
The main purpose of this release is to create a first stable release under Drupal 7. It contains some improvements as well, such as solving a memory leak in a long run cron based batch process, and enhancing the indexing speed.
The toolkit has four parts: the row of modules, a specific theme, a custom Apache Solr, and an Drupal distribution, which includes all necessary modules (XC and 3rd party ones), the current Drupal 7 core (7.22, with the necessary patch), and the theme. Previously the installation was quite complex, now we worked hard to make it easier.
The process is built on "drush", the Drupal command line tool. (see more: http://drupal.org/documentation/modules/drush).
The installation has two parts: a Drupal part, and a Solr part.
The Drupal part
If you have Drush:
$ cd /var/www # the Apache httpd server's webroot directory
$ drush dl xc_installation-7.x-1.1 --drupal-project-rename=xc
$ cd xc
