Drupal 7 Testdrive

Published by Lenz Grimmer
Based on openSUSE 11.3 32-bit x86
Homepage at http://drupal.org/

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.

Download

Downloaded 581 times Cloned 90 times

Downloads are no longer available for this appliance, as it is based on an OS version that we no longer support.

You can clone the appliance, then upgrade and build with a current OS version.

Release notes

  • Updated Drupal to 7.0
  • Bumped up appliance version number to 7.0.0, to match the version number of Drupal included
  • Added drush
  • New packages added: yast2-http-server, bind-utils, php5-ctype, patch

Special thanks to Richard Bos for the testing and many suggestions!

Trying to authenticate with phpMyAdmin but root with no password doesn’t allow access. I can however authenticate with drupal and drupal. Suggestions?

Ralph YoungRalph Young,

Fixed by editing /etc/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php

set auth_type=cookie
set AllowNoPassword=true

that’s all! thanks guys

how do i enable flash??

CologneCologne,

For those who want to run it on ESXi4, these are the steps I had to perform on the VMware image. It did not work out of the box and still gives me error messages about not supported guest os IDs. However it seems to work. I used my shell access on the esxi host, if you don’t have that, adapt the steps accordingly
1)via the Vmware client, browse the ESXi server’s datastore, create a directory and upload the tgz.
2) Via shell, cd to the directory, unpack the tgz.
3) Import the Disk with vmkfstools -i Drupal_7_Testdrive.i686-7.0.0.vmdk My_new_name.vmdk
4) In the datastore browser, point to the vmx file and add to inventory
5) in the inventory browser, perform an upgrade of the virtual hardware from 4 to 7
6) Edit the properties of the vm: first, remove the old Hard disk and then add a new one, using the converted disk created in step 3. In my case, I had to remove and re-create the network interface, connecting it to the vmnet of my choice
7) Boot – bingo. ErrorMessages about “suseGuest” not being supported can be ignored.

Regards,
Ulrich B.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

@passerby: thanks for the suggestions about NFS/SMB support. I’ll look into this. Drush is already on my TODO list for the next version (I have been travelling a lot in the past four weeks)

Juan Jesus Saez SotoJuan Jesus Saez Soto,

I’ve tried to download the WMWare virtual appliance with the latest versions of IE and Firefox and the file is always corrupt!!!

passerbypasserby,

will you consider adding NFS, FTP or SMB support in a later update to make it easier to manage it.

and maybe even drush.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Thanks for the suggestion, I will keep adding “patch” in mind for the next update.

Richard BosRichard Bos,

I wanted to use patch today, but it is not on the image, can you add it?

Sentosa DayaSentosa Daya,

I love your site, you give so many great tips especially since I use word press and the plug-in section of your blog is great. Some of the tips I get here I can’t find anywhere else. Thanks

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Lenz thanks, makes testing beta2 very easy :)

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

FWIW, a there is now a GUI-based version of this appliance as well.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Version 0.0.5 of the appliance has now been released, based on Drupal 7.0-beta2 and with phpMyAdmin included. Enjoy!

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Thanks for the suggestion about phpMyAdmin. I will look into this while updating to 7.0-beta2!

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Adding PHPMyAdmin would be nice indeed. It is provided by the server:php:applications repository.

david fathersdavid fathers,

Really useful – I’m looking at the School Administration Module which is only available on Drupal 7. Now all that’s needed is PHPMyAdmin….but many thanks to date.

David Fathers

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

FYI, I just published build 0.0.4 of my appliance, now shipping with Drupal 7.0-beta1. Let me know how you like it!

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Thanks for the feedback, I will add ntp and find-utils for the next release (and update to 7.0-beta1)

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Hi, I had to create the directory /srv/www/htdocs/sites/all/libraries to install an WYSIWYG editor. The one installed is: ckeditor, which is available from http://ckeditor.com
Perhaps you can include this editor as well, as it is not immediately clear how to obtain a WYSIWYG editor? The editor(s) can be configured at Home » Manage » Configure » Content authoring after installing the editor in the libraries directory….

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Hi Lenz, 0.0.3 works fine :) But I’m missing 2 important utilities, being: ntp (ntpdate) and updatedb/locate (find-utils). Can you add these to the image?

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Version 0.0.3 has now been published.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

The directory profiles/standard/translations/ will now be created by the custom script that runs at the end of the build process. It will also fix the ownerships of the entire directory structure (I thought that I had fixed the ownerships in the tarball already). Currently, there aren’t that many translations available for 7.0-alpha7 (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/translations/7.x/drupal/) – maybe I can add some of them at a later point…

Will build 0.3 with these changes and publish them here.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Hi Richard, thanks for your suggestions! I will look into these and publish an updated version soon. I will fix the description right away.

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Hi Lenz,

The group for the drupal files are not correct. At the moment they are owned by mail, while I expect www to be the group owner of the files.

Perhaps you can already create the directory translations, to make it a little easier to install language files:
drupal7:/srv/www/htdocs # ls profiles/standard/translations/
nl.po
See: http://drupalsite.org/tutorial/how-install-drupal-7-language-other-english

BTW: the mysql information is listed twice in your drupal 7 testdrive description:

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 MySQL username for Drupal is “drupal”, password is the same. The MySQL root account has no password.

Perhaps you can remove “The MySQL username for Drupal….”. And move the last sentence “The MySQL root…” a bit up.

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

I’ve now published version 0.0.2 including the missing PHP modules and providing an ISO image as well. Let me know how it works for you!

Lenz GrimmerLenz Grimmer,

Hi Richard, thanks for your feedback! I’ll add the missing modules and add zypper to the image as well. Providing the ISO image will be done, too.

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Hi Lenz, I activated the openid module. After that I visited the reports → status page. This shows:

BC Math library Not installed
OpenID requires the BC Math library for PHP which is missing or outdated. Check the PHP BC Math Library documentation for information on how to correct this.

and

Upload progress Not enabled
Your server is capable of displaying file upload progress, but does not have the required libraries. It is recommended to install the PECL uploadprogress library (preferred) or to install APC.

As zypper is not present on the image, I’m not able to add those libraries easily.

Can you add the php modules and zypper to the image? I assume it is php module php5-bcmath. The other one might be more difficult. It is probably php5-uploadprogress from server:php:extensions. But the version there is outdated 0.9.1 vs 1.0.1 upstream.

Richard BosRichard Bos,

Hi Lenz, I had problems getting to run the vmdk image. To overcome this problem, I cloned your image and created an ISO image. Getting the ISO image to run was a piece of cake → can you provide an ISO version of your image as well?
