STICKY: Installing Drupal - README

Greetings and welcome to the Installing Drupal forum.

Our community contributed documentation resides in the handbooks which is built with the Book module. These can be reached through the Documentation tab at the top of the page.

Don't forget that the Drupal download comes with an INSTALL.txt.

Migrating a single site to Multisite

Dear All

I have a new multisite install of Drupal which works perfectly with new websites. My aim is to move about 10 sites which are currently configured for a single install over to this new system, I am, however, having a problem with converting the single install's database to work with a multisite system. I'm running the following SQL within the MySQL command line tool but I receive an error telling me that. Table 'sites__db.FILES' doesn't exist.

Installation of Drupal 8.2.6 fails with Postgres

I am setting up Drupal 8.2.6 with postgres and the drupal installer fails with this error. I dont run into this issue when using MySQL though. Can someone help what might cause this to fail for Postgres + Drupal case.

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.
Drupal\Component\Plugin\Exception\PluginNotFoundException: The "field_storage_config" entity type does not exist. in Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityTypeManager->getDefinition() (line 133 of core\lib\Drupal\Core\Entity\EntityTypeManager.php).

[POSSIBLE?] Install multiple Drupal 7 distributions - can they use one Drupal core?

Is it possible to use one (same) Drupal core for multiple distributions in a domain hosting account then place each's distribution's profile files inside of core's 'profile' folder, instead of installing each's full distributions? For example, installing Open Atrium, Drupal Commerce, and others.

The alternative, I would assume, is installing each full distribution into their own sub-directory in the domain account, correct?


Clean URLs Disabled Warning

I'm attempting to (re)install drupal 8.2.6 on Ubuntu Server 16.04.2 LAMP.

On the Drupal requirements review page I'm getting a warning:

Clean URLs Disabled.

Which is strange because I didn't have this problem with my previous installation on same server.

Anyway, I followed the link and essentially went on a wild goose chase of vague unclear documentation trying various suggestions with no success so far.

How can configure the system to remove the Clean URLs Disabled warning?

OPcode caching not recognized during Drupal 8 installation

I am trying to install Drupal 8.2.6 on a shared hosting server.
I am being confronted with the message "PHP OPcode caching: Not enabled" on the requirements review screen.
However, OPcode caching IS enabled - my phpinfo.php file tells me so. Also, files are being cached in the .opcache-folder I created on the webspace. But Drupal fails to recognize this.
Might there be a problem/bug with the installation script in Drupal that just fails to recognize these settings in my environment?
Thanks for any help!
