Notes for Workshop

  • Platform: Drupal 8.1.x.
  • Free hosting: 24-hour test sites are available at simplytest.me. They will vanish after 24 hours. 30-day trial is also available at webenabled.com
  • You can also set up a local Apache, PHP, and MySQL stack on your laptop: XAMPP (www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html), WAMP (www.wampserver.com/en/), or MAMP (www.mamp.info/en/index.html) to run Drupal on. A few notes:
    • To download XAMPP, scroll down the page to the Downloads section - the "download" buttons at the top are ads!
    • Both MAMP and WAMP need to be started from their control panel after installing (and possibly on each reboot?).
    • If using WAMP, you will need to enable Apache's rewrite module from the control panel.
