Setting Up Your Drupal Site

Caution: Both OSTraining and tutorials showcase Acquia. Acquia does make installing Drupal easy—but the installed Drupal site will be on your Mac or PC and not accessible on the Internet by others or by me your instructor.

The plan for hosting your Drupal site is not established yet. Here are the possibilities:

This course provides you with a free Internet account for the duration of this semester. The account will be set up using a "reseller" account, which is still being arranged. If that doesn't work out, we'll set up a Drupal site on your instructor's personal ISP account. Your other alternative is to set up a free, trial account at Pantheon.

When you have finished these tasks, send me e-mail at
