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.

Can't install Zen theme

I downloaded the Zen theme and FTP'ed it to sites/all/themes.

It appeared in my list of themes, and I clicked on the Default setting. I got this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function render() in /home2/wvwworg/public_html/scholaclasses/forum/sites/all/themes/zen/templates/block.tpl.php on line 12

and now I can't get back to my Administration Themes page to change it back to Garland.

I was hoping it would be a simple matter to change the theme to a mobile-friendly theme, but apparently I got in over my head very quickly.

Can anyone help?

.htaccess file created at root

Drupal ver.: 7.38

OS: QNAP - BusyBox?


Excuse me if this has already been solved but I'm new to Drupal (today!) and while installing I ran into several issues. I wont get into details about all of them but I managed to finally install Drupal and was hoping someone could give me some pointers for next time.

The issue: After what appears to be a successful install, I get a:


You don't have permission to access /drupal/ on this server.

Installing Drupal on my laptop - site fails to install

I was successful in getting the Acquia Dev Desktop installed.

The next step was to "Create a new Drupal site" which takes me to "Select a Drupal distribution to start from". Watching some Youtube videos on installing Drupal I went with the Drupal Core files for 7.38 and that seems to have worked as I now see in the Acquia Dev Desktop my site information.

Installation Error during "Site Information"

I'm on Day #1 of learning Drupal and looking forward to getting into the guts of development. But during the desktop install I get the error "Fatal error: Call to undefined function field_attach_load() in C:\Users\JCross\Sites\devdesktop\drupal-7.38\includes\entity.inc on line 354" during the SITE INFORMATION page.

Any ideas??


NOTE: I'm starting from scratch on the install and getting new problems - no need to answer this question for now.

Installation - HTTP 500 Internal server error


I have a problem with the Drupal 6 installation.

Version Apache : Apache/2.2.22
Version MySQL : mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.28
Version PHP 5.2.17

I try to install Drupal as usual (copy default.settings.php -> settings.php...).
Then I go to "http://localhost" with my browser to set up the installation.
But at the database configuration, when I confirm my settings, I have the HTTP 500 Internal server error.
