I recently purchased the book "Beginning Drupal" by Jacob Redding. Following the book's installation instructions, specifically Acquia's Stack Installer, got it up and running quickly. But it turns out that the Drupal instructions in the book don't match the UI that was actually installed. It takes a lot of digging through the menus of the installed Drupal to find things named differently in the book. E.g. the top admin menu shown in the book has "Content, Structure, Appearance, People, ..." and the actually running version has "Content Management, Site Building, Site Configuration, User Management, ...)

I'm guessing that maybe the book instructions are for Drupal 7, but Drupal 6 was installed, Drupal 7 isn't even released yet. Does that sound like the problem? Any suggestions for how to fix this dilemma?

You are right Stillhope. The book is written for Drupal Version 7, which is officially still in Beta. My solution was to download it anyway to use with the book. 90% of what the book covers can be applied to this beta version. The rest you figure out intuitively. Hope you enjoy reading the book as I am

obyno,
thanks for confirming my suspicions. I considered installing Drupal 7 beta, but I've spent lots of time over the last few decades troubleshooting beta software, and that's not really what I'd like to be facing when I'm trying to learn something new. Besides, the book doesn't have instructions for installing a beta Drupal on top of the XAMPP/MAMP or Acquia installations it did describe. I also didn't choose that particular book hoping it would be only 90% accurate. On the other hand, using it with Drupal 6 is getting increasingly difficult, not easier as I progress.

Oh, well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you. I guess I'll just write it off and look for a more appropriate book.

Default Beginning Drupal by Redding

I am trying to learn Drupal using "Beginning Drupal" by Jacob Redding. The Drupal 6 vs. Drupal 7 issue seems to have gone away, as Drupal 7 is in general release.

My problem is that Redding continues to refer to addresses ("URL aliases") such as
http://localhost/contact... http://localhost/article... and http://localhost/node...
indicating that when I create contact forms or articles or nodes that I can reference them via these URLs. But that does not work for me, and I do not see a directory called "contact" or "article" or "node" anywhere on my server. So I am just getting more confused. What am I failing to understand?

My OS is RHEL 5.6.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi I am not sure if you still require help on this because the posted date is quite old. Let me know if you have any other problem :)

Default Installing Drupal errors

Hi,
I am just started with the book Beginning Drupal. I folloed the instructions, creating database with phpMyadmin, no problems. But when I start with installing Drupal and filling name datebase, user, password the I get an error, SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'drupal'@'localhost' (using password: YES).. The only way to install Drupal is using the database name that I made in phpmyadmin (drupal ), user has to be "root" ( in PHPmyadmin ( "drupal") and no password.

My question is why? I am doing a local installation?

Thanks,

ronald
