We will explain you everything regarding the installation as well. Once you are familiar with the basic things, it will be really beneficial to you as the new modules and themes uses the same process so you can repeat it as needed. Drupal is a very powerful and flexible open source 'Content Management System'.

We have large range of developers used Drupal an open-source software. It is user friendly CMS for website development. Drupal is an open-source platform thats why many IN-Built modules are available. We can also install and develop costume modules to provide functionality which your organization needs. We will also provide you some simple guidelines. These guidelines are just hints on things that need to be considered while managing a website.

A Drupal installation by EOT Infotech ensures that your website will run safely and smoothly, without any glitches.

Drupal provides developers with a database-driven CMS that comes "out-of-the-box" with many often-requested features. The community provides thousands of modules, which can be installed to provide additional functionality, along with thousands of free themes to make your site stand out. Third party paid themes are also available, as well as custom themes designed specifically for your site. With all this in mind, I decided to use Drupal for a site I am building for one of my clients. This article will walk you through the installation process and showcase some of the out-of-the-box features that make Drupal so popular.

Using your control panel from your web host you will first need to create a MySQL database for your installation. There are four pieces of information required to start the installation.

Database User Name : .....................
Database Password : .......................
Database Name : .............................
Database Host Name : ....................

If you have selected a virtual or dedicated hosting solution, your database may reside on your localhost (same server as your web host). However, if you have a shared hosting setup, your database is likely to be hosted elsewhere. You will need this information. Write this down on a piece of paper (or you can print this sheet) before you proceed.

To follow along with this tutorial you need Drupal with many modules. I have grouped these modules for simplicity into one simple download. You can download this entire package from the "Resources" link section. Once you have download this file to your desktop, you will need to unzip this file using your built in Win Unzip tool (Right click unzip, similar to unzipping this video eBook). It has features like the ability to create polls, surveys, blogs, sitemaps, web forms, image galleries, e-commerce and much more. You can decide which of these functionality you would like to have. Additionally, in this package you will find over 30 themes to choose for your site. As an owner of this video eBook you will have access to the latest updates, modules and information to keep your Drupal CMS up to date.

The installation process described here is a bit time consuming, i.e. – you will be waiting on a file transfer process for anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on your connection speed. The alternate way is to transfer the zip file directly to the server and unzip it on the server. However, this method is a bit more complex. I have made every effort possible to keep the entire installation process simple. If you are aware of the quicker methods, you are welcome to do it that way.

Unzip the files and copy all the source files from your local computer folder to the root folder of your web host. This is important, otherwise your installation may appear in a directory like www.youdomainname.com/directory_name.
Once the installation is complete, create your first account immediately. It is a super privileged account. Be sure to use an accessible email account for your first account (like Gmail). If you use your own corporate email, ensure that your email service is functional first. If you forget your password a new password is emailed to this account.
