Enabling "Clean URLs" for Drupal on a SuSE 10.0 / Plesk 8 Box

Blog Topics:

Everyone and especially the search engines prefer clean URLs, such as you can see on this site. When you originally install Drupal, it uses URLs with a question mark. In the administrative section there's a test for checking whether your web server can support clean URLs. If it can't, here's what to do:

Open /etc/sysconfig/apache2 in your editor, look for the line starting with APACHE_MODULES=, and add rewrite to the list of Apache modules that your web server loads.

Set Up a Single Drupal Installation for Supporting Multiple Virtual Hosts

Blog Topics:

Rather than installing and maintaining Drupal and its modules separately for each virtual host, it's much better to install it once and link each domain to the shared copy. Of course, we still want to maintain high security. This blog entry will walk you through installing Drupal 5.1 on a SuSE 10.0 box.

Let's get right to it:

groupadd drupal
groupmod drupal -A wwwrun
groupmod drupal -A psaftp
groupmod drupal -A psaadm
