Drupal is an open source CMS created by Dries Buytaert in 2000.
Even if it can be considered as accessible to the most laymen, we recommend it however to those who are already used to using CMS, such as Joomla or Concrete5.
We start with the simplest steps... The more you progress, page after page, the more sophisticated the scripts will be. However, you must pass the cape of 30 to 40 pages per level, before moving on to the next step... FOLLOW THE STEPS AND IMMERSE YOURSELF!
E0001 - Work environment
Don't dance faster than the music...
Drupal is a complex, but powerful and rich platform. Before proceeding with the installation, you need to make sure that you can have a good working environment. We will use the 9th version.
First of all... the server on which you plan to install your E-Commerce. You must have sufficient disk space and memory.
Basic technical specifications:
- Server : VPS 4 CPU/16 GB RAM, 950G of space disk (minimum).
- CloudLinux : 4G memory, unrestricted, 200% of the processor capacity.
- PHP : 7.4 version (minimum), 2048M memory, 512M file upload limit.
Even if you don't know anything about it, you won't be able to go to the next step without first making sure that everything is in accordance with these technical specifications .
If you do not have the necessary qualifications or the access/Rights (on CPanel for example), make sure that your host will properly configure the server for you. A second professional, independent opinion, is always welcome (click here if you have any doubts).
To begin with, if you are not working directly on the server, your office computer must also be up to the task, that means, sufficiently powerful with a good Internet connection. Ultimately, you might install basic softwares which will allow you to work much faster, in order to better manage your products and services catalogs offered on your website.
