Drupal 7 Testdrive
This appliance provides a lightweight LAMP stack (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) to perform a headless (no GUI) Drupal test installation, currently based on Drupal 7.0 final. This Drupal instance can only be accessed via the network. If you prefer running the installation from a built-in GUI desktop, take a look at the Drupal 7 Testdrive GUI appliance.
The database backend is MySQL 5.5, with InnoDB and strict mode enabled.
phpMyAdmin has been added to support web-based administration of the MySQL server. You can access it via http://ip-address/phpMyAdmin/
drush , the Drupal command line shell and scripting interface is included, too.
Simply boot the appliance (e.g. in VMware or VirtualBox), choose your keyboard layout and go through the network configuration and Time Zone selection. Once the appliance has booted up and the login: prompt appears, you can point your web browser to the appliance’s IP address to start the Drupal installation/configuration.
MySQL has been pre-configured, there is an empty database named “drupal” and a user “drupal” with the same password to access it. Just enter this information in the Drupal Database configuration dialogue.
The following system/user accounts have been set up – make sure to change the passwords to something less predictable:
- The Linux root user uses “root” as the password. No other user account has been set up.
- The MySQL root account has no password.
USB & disk image
This is an image of your disk, ready to be written to either a USB drive or your hard disk. When written, it will erase all data on a disk. During the first boot, your partition will be automatically resized to fill available space.
Burn this ISO file to a DVD (or CD, if the space allows), and you'll be able to boot directly from the disc.
Open Virtualization Format (OVF)
The OVF format is an open standard for packaging and distributing virtual appliances. It is not tied to any particular hypervisor or system architecture.
VMware / VirtualBox / KVM image
Whether you use VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM, this vmdk is a ready-to-use virtual appliance.
Xen guest image
This Xen guest image is ready to run on a Xen hypervisor host.
