the Learn Drupal project


This is an attempt to document the very basics of installing and setting up Drupal.

It should culminate with a list of best practices, including tools for backup and recovery.  Ideally this could also have a customized installation profile.

Things could be loosely categorized as follows:

  • installation (+ background UNIX stuff)
  • configuration
  • mandatory modules + themes
  • optional modules (+ themes)
  • navigation stuff (modules, themes, tokens + taxonomies)
  • output stuff (themes, PHP, CSS, printing, mobile sites)
  • archive + restore

The site itself should be an example of a finished Drupal mini-site.
