drupal, ubuntu

installing drupal 7 in ubuntu 12.10

while installing drupal in my machine i faced some unexpected permission problem something like below:

Web server Apache/2.4.3 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1c PHP/5.4.7
PHP 5.4.7
PHP register globals Disabled
PHP extensions Enabled
Database support Enabled
PHP memory limit 128M
File system
The directory sites/default/files is not writable. An automated attempt to create this directory failed, possibly due to a permissions problem. To proceed with the installation, either create the directory and modify its permissions manually or ensure that the installer has the permissions to create it automatically. For more information, see INSTALL.txt or the online handbook.
Unicode library PHP Mbstring Extension
Settings file The ./sites/default/settings.php file exists.
Settings file The settings file is not writable.
The Drupal installer requires write permissions to ./sites/default/settings.php during the installation process. If you are unsure how to grant file permissions, consult the online handbook.

Check the error messages and proceed with the installation.

so don’t worry, its just simple permission issue all we need to do is give sufficient permission to drupal
  1. create a folder named “files” in /opt/lampp/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/
  2. enter this command in the terminal sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/lampp/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/files
  3. rename the default.settings.php to settings.php inside /opt/lampp/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/default.settings.php
  4. sudo chmod 777 -R /opt/lampp/htdocs/drupal/sites/default/settings.php

you are now all ready to go now.

  1. So not just do vaccines clog the child with toxins.
    It doesn’t have that chalky disgusting aftertaste that nearly
    every dust does, rendering it delicious for smoothies, and certainly will work very
    well as a dinner complement if you don’t have time
    to eat breakfast before function or simply too tired to cook.

    Glutathione battles hard to keep the pure beauty of our skin by perverting the effect of these toxins on our skin.
