I downloaded Drupal 8.x source code from git. To test the code I tried to install it to my localhost. When I run the install page it works fine up to Installation profile. After installing all 40 modules it gives page not found error. To be specific the page "http://localhost/drupal/core/install.php?langcode=en&profile=standard&id=1&op=do_nojs&op=finished". When I reload it goes to "configure site" as expected. Adding all the details required on that page when I click the submit button It again gives a page not found error for the page "http://localhost/drupal/core/install.php?langcode=en&profile=standard". But when I reload the page it goes to "Finished" page. When I click the "visit your new site" url it directs to the log in page(But not logged on as the user I created in the installation). By entering username and password in the relevant text fields and clicking the log in button It again gives a page not available error for the page "http://localhost/drupal/node?destination=node". When I reload it goes again to log in page.
I tried to install this several times, but every time same thing happens. I downloaded Drupal 7.21 (not from the git) and is installed normally.
OS - Windows 7 ultimate
Server - wampserver 2.2
Apache version - 2.2.22
PHP version - 5.3.13
MySQL version - 5.5.24
In this article I might be wrong at any of the parts as Drupal is huge and my knowledge might be not up to date and I might be wrong anyways. These are my thoughts currently that I want to share them with the Drupal Community...
I really think Drupal has a few issues. These are mainly related to previous generations of Drupal. Current Drupal versions come with pretty much relations to previous ones.
I started using Drupal like 2 years ago. Maybe earlier. I really loved its idea however before finding drupal I've started writing my own CMS. When I didn't even know about the expression 'CMS'. This thing doesn't mean much. It only means i really understand the basic reason why it was made.
My belief is that things can be much easier. Here I am about putting some idea together how Drupal can be (and hopefully will be) much better.
- No exceptions: Each and every node type info (publishing options, display settings) should be normal fields. With all the options a field gives: Widgets, Formatters, etc. On Entity Type Properties there are Title, Author, etc now. Great. We need all the rest I believe.
I think a few things can improve user experience and reduce learning curve. These are:
- On Manage Fields tab I'm thinking of a help text st like 'This is a list of fields in Content Type X'. I'm not sure if this list fully defines the content types form and has nothing else to do. If this is the case than mentioned help text would give some help understand what is going on on that tab.
- I'm thinking of an 'Add field' Context Link on top and/or bottom of this list. Also one for Existing fields.
- On manage Display tab / Custom Display Settings: I can Imagine an 'Add Display' link that makes you able to create new displays.
can someone tell me how to change colors for those round black dots for changing slides..i am new to programming
I am running a new VPS-server with cPanel, and use LAMP from it.
Are there someone who want to share their configurations on EasyApache by cPanel control panel, and also what you would suggest me to have checked or leave unchecked?
I have just bought a VPS server, and installed cPanel as control panel.
So I want to build a well server and used cPanel to the Drupal sites/users.
Then I wonder what kind of extensions or applications do Drupal really need to get it works/performance well?
As I know that I have already:
- LAMP by cPanel
- ACP and PECL uploadprogress
- Something I missed?
But I am still getting some errors under Update manager as below:
Error installing / updating
File Transfer failed, reason: Cannot remove directory
