Why Is Drupal 7 driver for SQL Server and SQL Azure Module Installed and Enabled By Default


I downloaded Acquia Dev Desktop and installed Drupal 7 on my Windows PC which installed full DAMP stack. Looking at the modules I discovered that the "Drupal 7 driver for SQL Server and SQL Azure Module" is installed and enabled by default. Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance!

Commerce Search API - not appearing on all pages

Hi all,

Any advice on getting the Commerce Search API box to appear on all pages throughout the site? Currently only sits on the 'Browse Store' page. Want it to appear on all product pages and homepage, but can't find how to adjust it from within the CMS.

Website is www.buymythings.com.au

Thanks in advance!

mysql connection fails but it does as I've tested it

I'm getting the following error installing drupal 7 (latest version from website):

Failed to connect to your database server. The server reports the following message: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2003] Can't connect to MySQL server on 'dbserver' (13).

I am running MySQL on one windows server and httpd on another Linux server. MySQL is running just fine and on the httpd server I can connect just fine to the MySQL, as follows:

mysql -h dbserver -p --port=3001 -u drupal

Similarly I can run mysqli and pdo and it connection just fine too from my httpd server:

Adding Drupal to Yosemite 10.10.3 - Easy

I have just installed Drupal onto my Yosemite box. OS X 10.10.3, and there don't seem to be any particular gotcha's, apart from the old documentation on the Drupal site referring to older versions of the OS X platform. If you are on Yosemite - ignore them if you have your own Apache installation working.
The version of Apache that comes with OSX - Yosemite is more trouble than it's worth, so I installed my own. My own MySQL and PHP as well.

Internal server error and WSOD on install

Hey all,

this is getting irritating and trust me, I've searched and tried everything I have found to solve this problem but no luck so far.

The problem is that when I try to install Drupal 7.37 on a remote server (which I have no control of), I get an internal server error. I have moved Drupal to the server via FTP, like so many times before, but when I go to the url the error comes up.
