Installing Drupal on Ubuntu 22.04

Drupal is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) that allows you to easily build and manage dynamic websites. It provides a powerful platform for creating and organizing content, managing users and permissions, and extending functionality through modules and themes.

To install Drupal on Ubuntu 22.04, follow these steps:

Step 1: Install LAMP stack

The first step is to install the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack on your Ubuntu 22.04 server. This provides the necessary components for Drupal to run.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install lamp-server^

During the installation, you will be prompted to set a password for the MySQL root user. Make sure to remember this password as you will need it later.

Step 2: Create a MySQL database and user for Drupal

Next, you need to create a MySQL database and user for Drupal to use. You can do this with the following commands:

sudo mysql -u root -p
CREATE USER 'drupaluser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
GRANT ALL ON drupal.* TO 'drupaluser'@'localhost';

Replace 'password' with a strong password of your choice.

Step 3: Download and extract Drupal

Now, you can download the latest version of Drupal from the official website or using the following command:

cd /var/www/html
sudo wget https://www.drupal.org/download-latest/tar.gz
sudo tar -zxvf tar.gz
sudo mv drupal-* drupal

Step 4: Configure Drupal

Next, you need to create a settings file and set the correct permissions for Drupal to work properly.

cd /var/www/html/drupal/sites/default
sudo cp default.settings.php settings.php
sudo chown www-data:www-data settings.php
sudo chmod 664 settings.php

Step 5: Complete the installation via web browser

Finally, you can finish the installation by accessing your server's domain or IP address using a web browser. You will be prompted to select a language and set up the site details.

Make sure to choose the "Standard" installation profile, enter the database name, username, and password from Step 2, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Drupal on Ubuntu 22.04.

Remember to remove the installation files after completing the installation:

sudo rm /var/www/html/drupal/core/install.sh
sudo rm /var/www/html/drupal/core/authorize.php

You should also secure your Drupal installation by configuring HTTPS, enabling necessary security modules, and keeping your Drupal core and modules up to date.

That's it! You can now start building your website using Drupal's powerful features and functionalities.
