Download the Drupal code and install it to /var/www/drupal
All the prerequisite are the same as for OpenPublish. Please see these before you start, this includes creating a database.
Just a note, once you have the system up and running, you will probably remove the login box, the URL to allow you to logon and administer the site is
The admin page is http://x.x.x.x/drupal/?q=user
Navigate to /var/www/drupal/sites/default
chmod o+rw files
cp default.settings.php settings.php
chmod o+rw default.settings.php
chmod o+rw settings.php
This will start the installation.
Once done you will have an empty web site. One useful tool to have is a Wysywig creator for you content, I am lead to believe that
Download from the respective sites.
Copy or move the
cp -R wysiwyg /var/www/drupal/modules/wysiwyg
Copy or move the tinymce directory into the all/libraries
cp -R tinymce /var/www/drupal/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/
Go into the Drual configuration and enable the wysiwy module
Administer –> Site building –> Modules
Go to the bottom and enable the module.
To check if everything is OK
Administer –> Site Configuration
You should see the Wysiwig menu at the bottom, try logging out of the web site if this does not show.
Choose the Wysiwyg menu as you need to now enable the editors in the site, this area also allows you to download other editors. The choice is entirely yours.
You should be up and running, I now just have to figure out how to use the bloody thing 🙂
