Drupal 7 multi site install

Postby DF30000 » Mon Jul 15, 2013 7:37 pm

I have a Drupal 7 multi site install ie Drupal 7 core application in the root directory and sub directories for various domains. I purchased the Pro version for one domain name and one of the sub directories is labelled the domain name. From standard instructions GTranslate should be installed in the root directory. Despite numerous emails from me asking for advice on whether I should install GT root directory or in the sub directory labelled for the designated domain name I have not received an answer. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi,
You should install GTranslate in the root directory of your domain. Dor example if your domain is domain.com
you should upload GTranslate folder to the root directory (domain.com/gtranslate).

Please check the documentation https://gtranslate.io/docs/57-gtranslat ... on#general and let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Yana
I finally managed to get the language module to work however
1. when I enter http://www.xxxxxxx.com/gtranslate/config.php - I see only a white screen
2. the translated page opens in a separate window and language menu shows text in the translated language, I would like to retain the menu text in their own language or at the very least display all text in English

Thanks

I manually amended the config.php file using TextWrangler (mac) and uploaded to the 'gtranslate' directory and although I still get a blank screen, I can at least use the language module and edit the language for the page.

Hi,
1. You should edit config.php with text editor. You need to download it, make changes and upload to the server.
2. You need to disable :open the translated pages in a new window" option

Instructions on installing Drupal on other systems.

Postby markline189 » Thu Jul 18, 2013 4:37 pm

Drupal developers
1. Server Requirements
To run Drupal 7 you need:
1. Apache (version 2.0 or greater)
2. PHP 5 (5.2.0 or greater)
3. MySQL (5.0 or greater) or PostgreSQL (8.3 or greater) or SQLite (3.4.2 or greater)
Read more about system requirements (among which detailed PHP-settings and browser
requirements)
2. Download and extract files
Download Drupal 7 from http://drupal.org/project/drupal and extract the files with a compression tool
(such as tar or 7zip).
wget http://drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-7.x.tar.gz
tar -zxvf drupal-7.x.tar.gz
Move the files into a directory within your web server's document root or your public HTML directory.
On many *nix computers the path from the server's root will be /var/www/
mv drupal-7.x /var/www/
You can install and use Drupal in other languages by downloading translations from http://drupal.org/
project/translation. Extract the files into the Drupal directory (e.g. /var/www/drupal-7.x)

3. Create configuration file and grant permissions
Create a configuration file by copying the example, named default.settings.php in the sites/default
directory. The copied configuration file must be named settings.php
cp sites/default/default.settings.php sites/default/settings.php
Give the web server write privileges (644 or ) to the configuration file.
chmod a+w sites/default/settings.php
So that the files directory can be created automatically, give the web server write privileges to the
sites/default directory.
chmod a+w sites/defaultRead more about downloading and extracting Drupal (among which instructions for FTP, Windows
and Mac).
4. Create the Drupal database
You must create a MySQL database for your Drupal site.
mysqladmin -u username -p create databasename
where 'username' is a MySQL user which has the CREATE and GRANT privileges..
MySQL will prompt for the 'username' database password.
Next you must set the access database rights. Login to MySQL:
mysql -u username -p
At the MySQL prompt, enter:
GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER
ON databasename.*
TO 'username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
Where:
'databasename' is the name of your database
'username'@'localhost' is the username of your MySQL account
'password' is the password required for that username
If successful, MySQL will reply with:
Query OK, 0 rows affected
Read more about creating the database (among which instructions on using phpmyadmin and
postgres and sqlite as database)
5. Run the installation script
To run the installation script point your browser to the base URL of your website (e.g.,
http://www.example.com, http://www.example.com/drupal7 or http://localhost/drupal7).
The installation wizard appears. It guides you through several screens to set up the database, add the
first user account and provide basic web site settings.
Follow the wizard to finalize the installation and start working with your Drupal 7 website.
