Drupal Installation

Follow the instruction in Drupal tutorial:
https://drupal.org/documentation/install/settings-file

However, for the permission setting part, it's not working if I follow the instruction.
During the installation, Drupal may have to do some modifications on the files in sites/default/, they may be modified. So, 'w' is required.

The easiest way to solve the permission issue here is to grant all the permissions and modify them back as soon as the installation is done.

  • chmod 777 settings.php && chmod 777 ../default/
  • process the installation
  • chmod 644 settings.php ^&& chmod 755 ../default/
Done.
