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.

multisite install on godaddy shared - page cannot be found / 404 errors

I'm a Drupal novice and have recently come back to drupal because 8 seems to be designer friendly. After successfully testing a single site install via Godaddy's Drupal 8beta installer, I decided that multisite is the way I need to go.

I basically followed these instructions:

Database Error

Receiving this error when trying to get in admin panel at www.dollsgen.com:

PDOException: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'dollharg_drpl1'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in lock_may_be_available() (line 165 of /home/dollharg/public_html/includes/lock.inc).

The line(s) in question looks like this:

$expire = (float) $lock['expire'];
$now = microtime(TRUE);

Im using my website name/admin

It would be appreciated if someone can help with this.

Drupion to Localhost - Localhost to Drupion

I just joined Drupion and I'm trying to move the existing Drupal website to localhost MAMP. I downloaded the Drupal folder and the database. Then I created the database on MAMP, imported the database (file.sql) and pasted the folder in my htdocs. When I go to my website, I get the following error message:

Warning: file_get_contents(/etc/varnish/secret): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in include_once() (line 246 of /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/Drupion Test/sites/default/settings.php).

PLEASE validate my install!


I'm very new to drupal although I'm relatively ok with server / db stuff.

I've created the following setup and wanted to ask whether I've left anything out / got anything wrong:
