drupal 7 in F14?
 
Hi,

I've been learning about Drupal 7 on a CentOS install and it is more
convenient to use it on my F14 box for learning purposes. The install
was just a yum command, but I'm accustomed to finding and running the
install.php file to configure it. When I start an instance of firefox
as root and browse to that file I don't get the expected install
screen sequence but rather some ascii gibberish. Also the file
location is in /usr/share rather than as I would have expected in a
folder off /var/www/html.

Is there a reference for D7 in Fedora? There's no man page. I have a
couple of D7 books, it's the Fedora-specific bits I'm having trouble
with.

Advice much appreciated.

Dave

This was fun for me to figure out as well. Drupal 6 is what is in the F14 respositories, not Drupal 7 (unless there is a package name extension which differentiates between the two -- "yum install drupal" installs Drupal 6). Here are a few links that may clear things up a bit:
http://zxq9.com/archives/442
http://drupal.org/node/557910
http://drupal.org/node/1056404
Note that these are installations for Drupal 7 from drupal.org, not from the yum repositories for F14, as the repositories do not carry D7. This means you have to pay attention to the report panel inside Drupal and keep up with updates on your own (which is less fun than using yum update, obviously, but not hard).

I would strongly advise installing directly from the Drupal.org site and
not via the Fedora repos. The drupal site will always be more up to
date and will work in a way that matches Drupal's docs.

I have Drupal 7.2, the latest version, working very well in Fedora 14.
May I suggest downloading Drupal 7.2.tar.gz* into /Downloads, extract it into a folder that will have the same name as teh archive, sudo cp that folder to /var/www/html/ -note the following / so it doesn't overwrite anything in /var/www/html

In Firefox do 127.0.0.1/drupal7folder and if you have the database set up it should start the install
