IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! container.host.funtoo.org DNS will be updated after the move.

New ARM Stages

New ARM Stages, built with a new toolchain, are now hitting mirrors. Existing ARM users should re-install using these stages (dated Aug 3, 2015 or later,) rather than upgrade using emerge.

Drupal is a powerful Web-server-stack web application that can be used to craft custom websites, for example: http://www.whitehouse.gov

Install

Note

drupal likes php emerged with the gmp use flag enabled

# emerge drupal

MySQL

Warning

default "changeme" passwords are insecure, change them!

To create a database for drupal to interact with:

# mysql -u root -p
mysql> CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS `drupal` DEFAULT CHARACTER SET `utf8` COLLATE `utf8_unicode_ci`;
mysql> CREATE USER 'drupal'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'changeme';
mysql> GRANT LOCK TABLES, SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER ON `drupal`.* TO 'drupal'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'changeme';
mysql> \q

webapp-config

Note

webapp-config is currently broken for Drupal so you must run it yourself:

To run webapp-config, you must know the version number of the webapp you're installing. To find the version number:

# equery l drupal

then run something similar to this, making sure to replace the version number with your current drupal version.

# webapp-config -I -h localhost -u root -d /drupal drupal 7.31

web install

Start your web server, and database.

nginx

configure your nginx similar to official documentation. http://wiki.nginx.org/Drupal

point your browser @ http://localhost/drupal/install.php

apache

If you are using apache 2.4, or newer run this sed command.

# sed -i 's\Order allow,deny\Require all granted\' /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/.htaccess

point your browser @ http://localhost/drupal/install.php

Permission Adjustments

Enable Theme & Module Uploads

Note
if you're using nginx change to nobody:nogroup
# chown -R apache:apache /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/sites/all/

Adjust for Security

# chmod 640 /var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/settings.php

Post Install

base url

To set your base url:

/var/www/localhost/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/settings.php (php source code) - ip address listening to external requests or domain name
$base_url = 'http://0.0.0.0/drupal';  // NO trailing slash!

Cron

Drupal automates several tasks by cron. see official documentation to setup a cron job. https://www.drupal.org/node/23714

Maintenance Mode Access

If you suddenly find your self locked out of your drupal cms because it is in maintenence mode:

http://localhost/drupal/user

Troubleshooting

If you are having problems logging into the admin console flush your browser cache.
