a. Drupal: Firstly, we have to download Drupal from the Drupal’s official website. The latest version of Drupal is 8.4.4. We will be downloading the .zip version as it is for Windows.Download URL:https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/releases/8.4.4 b. MAMP server: As we are installing Drupal on our local machine, in that case we will be requiring a server to host our website so for that we will be using MAMP server. You can also use XAMPP to host the website locally.Download URL:https://www.mamp.info/en/downloads/ Steps for installing Drupal :­ Step 1: Now, we will be installing the MAMP server so open the MAMP installer which you have downloaded. Select the language and install it on your local machine by accepting the agreement and clicking next and install.Step 2: Extract the Drupal installation file by right clicking on the file and extract. e
Step 3: Now copy this extracted Drupal file and paste it in to ” C:MAMPhtdocs ” directory. Step 4: Now open the MAMP.exe file from ‘C:MAMPhtdocsdrupal’ directory or you can also open it using the MAMP icon on the desktop. After opening it, it will ask you for permission for running Apache and MYSQL server please allow them otherwise the MAMP server will not work. Now that your server as started so click on “Open start page”. As soon as you do that it will open a page in a browser with the URL: http://localhost/MAMP/ Step 6: Now hover over “Tools” and select phpMyAdmin it will load the following page or you can also paste this URL: http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/?lang=en in your browser. Step 7: Select ‘new’ on sidebar to create a database and give it a name say ‘Drupal’ (make sure that you remember this name as it will be required later). And press on create button. Step 8: Go to new tab on you and type ‘http://localhost/drupal­8.4.4/core/install.php’ and hit enter. Now it will load the page shown below. Here, Select the language which you prefer. I will be choosing English only and click ‘save and continue’ button. Step 9: Now, select the installation profile as ‘Standard’ and click on ‘save and continue’. Step 10: In ‘Verify requirements’ tab it will show you some warnings like ‘PHP Opcode catching’ in amber colour so please ignore it, as we don’t have to do anything here because we are installing Drupal on our local machine we don’t need it. So, just scroll downwards and select ‘continue anyway’. Step 11: Here, you have to enter the Database name as I have previous told you to remember it while creating the database. I will put ‘Drupal’ in place of Database name as I have given the same name while creating the database. By default, the ‘Database username’ and ‘Database password’ both are “root” so I will be entering the ‘root’ as both, my database username as well as my password. You can choose it whatever you want to and click on ‘save and continue’. Step 12: In ‘Configure site’ you have to enter your site name, site email, your email address and region, etc. In place of username and password you can choose whatever you want and click on ‘save and continue ‘. You will be seeing the following page if all the things work’s correctly. This is the main page of your Drupal website. If you want to re­login on to your Drupal website then go to ‘http://localhost/drupal­8.4.4/’on your browser and it will ask you for the username and password, enter the same username and password which you have entered on ‘Configuration site’ tab.
