#The Drupal installer requires write permissions to ./sites/default/settings.php during the installation process. If you are unsure how to grant file
#permissions, please consult the on-line handbook.

[ default]$ cp default.settings.php settings.php
mkdir files; chmod 777 files
chmod 777 settings.php

 

Move Drupal Install to Root and not a Subdirectory

  1. Copy the contents of the directory where you installed drupal to the main root of your site eg. /var/www/vhosts/yoursite.com/
  2. Manually copy the .htaccess file from your Drupal install (this is the only real requirement for moving your Drupal installation -or you'll get lots of weird errors/things won't work right).
