Drupal Developer

This is an install profile designed to jump-start module development. It rewrites the install forms, providing a default username and password of admin/drupal (this has changed from the old package which was drupal/drupal). It also installs and configures developer modules like devel and coder.

Default username and password: admin/drupal.

WARNING! This profile contains potentially dangerous user settings, permissions, do not use it on a live site.

Installation and update

Either download the large tarball below, or create a small makefile (also packaged with the distribution):

api = 2.x
core = 7.x
projects[] = drupal
projects[drupal_developer][type] = "profile"
projects[drupal_developer][download][type] = "git"
projects[drupal_developer][download][revision] = "7.x-1.x"

Use it with drush make like so: drush make dd.make [mysite], where dd.make contains the text above and [mysite] is the target directory to build the new site in.

Modules within the package

  • devel
  • admin menu
  • coder
  • features
  • grammar_parser
  • schema
  • xhprof

Drupal.org Testing

This profile is out-dated and was only for Drupal 6. For Drupal 7, see https://drupal.org/project/projectinstall

This profile installs a site with the structure, content, permissions, etc of Drupal.org to facilitate the reproduction of bugs and testing of patches for the project modules. See What theme and modules does Drupal.org use? for the complete list.

Getting started

  1. Install Git. [more info]
  2. Install Drush.
    cd ~
    git clone --branch 7.x-4.x http://git.drupal.org/project/drush.git
  3. Install Drush Make:
    mkdir ~/.drush
    cd ~/.drush/
    git clone --branch 6.x-2.x http://git.drupal.org/project/drush_make.git
  4. Enter the following to install the profile at a Drupal root of /var/www/mydrupalorg (this installs a copy of Drupal core and all necessary modules all at once):
    drush make http://bit.ly/gOT8mp --prepare-install --working-copy /var/www/mydrupalorg
    (Note: could take 3 minutes or more before any output appears)
  5. It's possible that apachesolr's SolrPhpClient library may have been put in the wrong location. If it's in /var/www/mydrupalorg/profiles/drupalorg_testing, move it to /var/www/mydrupalorg/profiles/drupalorg_testing/modules/apachesolr
  6. Navigate to http://localhost/mydrupalorg/ and start the installation, choosing the "Drupal.org testing profile" at the beginning.

Social Forum Call for Action

This installation profile is to capture the collective work done to launch and develop the website for the World Social Forum Call for day of action / mobilisation January 26th 2008.

(Although the development snapshot will install, this profile is not meant for general use yet. Do, however, use the issue queue to request features for the profile and report bugs for its implementation on the WSF2008.net development site. If you would like to help, please contact Agaric Design Collective.)

When the site and this installation profile are fully matured (sometime in 2008, the day of action is more like a month or year of action), this will be an installation profile for a multilingual site with map integration and features for proposing actions, communicating and collaborating about actions in onsite with e-mail groups, and listing and finding actions around the world.

DrupalMU was intended as an installation profile that creates a multi-user blogging platform. It is now replaced by hosted solutions like Drupal Gardens and installation profiles like Drupal Commons and Aegir.


Single-User Blog

NB. This is currently being reworked for D6 from the start..

The Single-User Blog install profile's goal is to set up a site with basic blogging features. Instead of forcing the user to accept hardcoded options, the profile offers the user various options to customise their install, such as selecting from a choice of pathauto paths, allowing the user to set up the site information, possibly change the colour of the template etc. Sample content is also added.

The profile doesn't depend on the blog module, instead leveraging views and a basic nodetype.




DrupalBin is a tool to collaborate and debug Drupal code snippets. Its goal is to replicate what is accomplished by various pastebin-like websites.

Indymedia cities list module: http://drupal.org/project/indymedia_cities
Fckeditor: http://drupal.org/project/fckeditor



This is a very simple install profile. You can use it to copy a site from your dev server to your deployment server. It reads the SQL file query by query (split by ";" at the end of lines) so it shouldn't run out of memory, or time-out (like PHPMyAdmin will on big dumps if you upload them)

You need to create a PHPMyAdmin dump (or mysql dump, if you know what you are doing) of your running site.

Here are the settings for PHPMyAdmin :



Projectverse is an installation profile for creating a Drupal-based project management extranet. It currently uses Drupal core, CCK, Views, Organic Groups, Case Tracker and other helper modules to create a groupware environment.

Most of the functionality and design philosophy behind Projectverse is drawn from an existing groupware site (code-named Project Central) that has evolved over time to meet the needs of Drupal services firms and their clients.

packgr preview

packgr is a multistep installer for Drupal 6 that allows the selection and configuration of multiple 'Packages' upon installation of a new Drupal site.

View a screencast of packgr in action.

How it works

It is implemented as an install profile, which a user can choose upon installing a new instance of Drupal. Upon completion of the basic site configuration information, the user is given a change to select multiple 'Packages' which can define multiple tasks, forms, and modules to enable. The installer than walks the user through each step of each package, presenting forms and updating the status of installed packages.

Behind the scenes

Each package consists of a packagename.inc file located in the packgr/packages directory. This file contains two hooks, one to define the info about the package, and another to define default tasks and their callbacks. Please look at the Default package included with packgr for more examples.


Project Managment

Project Management is something which helps all projects run smoothly. I personally resent having to pay good money to companies who host poor solutions. This is what spawned the idea of a Project Management profile for Drupal.

I have currently taken inspiration from a few pages around the web such as:



Deprecation notice: this profile has been removed because Aegir 0.2 will not require any preconfiguration to deploy new platforms.
