Prep Drupal Files For Installation
Create Files and Directories and Make Them Writable
This bash one-liner will prepare a Drupal source tree for installation. When run from the Drupal root directory this will:
- Create the settings.php file.
- Make the new settings.php file writable to all users.
- Create a files directory in sites/default/
- Make the files directory writable to all uses.
cp ./sites/default/default.settings.php ./sites/default/settings.php \ && chmod 777 ./sites/default/settings.php \ && mkdir ./sites/default/files \ && chmod 777 ./sites/default/files
Securing Drupal Files and Directories Post-install
Once the Drupal installer has finished, you will need to secure the permissions properly. For detailed information on securing Drupal file permissions, see Securing file permissions and ownership
