Drupal Workshop: Installing Drupal & Basic Configuration

Sharon Krossa
25 September 2009 - 2:00pm

This is the first in a series of hands-on workshops covering Drupal installation and development at Stanford. Bring a laptop and follow along!

Part 1 - Installing Drupal will go step-by-step through:

  • Installing Drupal using the Stanford Collaboration Tools Installer
  • Enabling included contributed modules
  • Basic configuration

In order to follow along and install your own Drupal installation during the workshop, you will need to be a member of the -admin PTS group for a department or group AFS account.

See for more details about requesting department/group AFS space and/or adding someone to a relevant -admin PTS group. Requesting a new department/group AFS account or that you be added to the -admin PTS group of an existing department/group AFS account takes time, but needs to be completed BEFORE the workshop. 

Note: There will be a very limited number of temporary accounts available for use by attendees who cannot get access to a department/group AFS account. Please use the link at to let us know if you will need access to a temporary account.
