Focus on setting up your own Drupal website. starting with an empty linux server focusing on using ssh and the command line to communicate with the server. Students will learn to use the few basic commands required to setup a Drupal site (ssh, wget, tar, cp, mv, cd and rm) without getting to complicated. This session will deviate from the norm and setup Drupal preparing a foundation for websites that may need to scale up. We will also look at some best practices not obvious to beginners such as using the all directory and setting up a multisite installation and of course share a list of favorite plugins for starting out.
