Install drupal through command line step by step


Download and extract files

$  wget https://www.drupal.org/files/projects/drupal-x.x.tar.gz
$  tar -zxvf drupal-x.x.tar.gz

Move to root folder

$  mv drupal-x.x /var/www/html

Create the configuration file and grant permissions

In the sites/default directory, copy the default.settings.php file and rename the copied file to settings.php.

$ cp sites/default/default.settings.php sites/default/settings.php

Give the web server write privileges (666 or u=rw,g=rw,o=rw) to the configuration file.

$ chmod a+w sites/default/settings.php

Give the web server write privileges to the sites/default directory.

$ chmod a+w sites/default

Create the Drupal database

To complete the installation, you must create an empty database and a user with full access to the newly created database for Drupal to use. You can do this by command line, or through phpMyAdmin or another database client.

$ mysqladmin -u username -p create databasename

Where ‘username’ is a MySQL user which has the CREATE and GRANT privileges. MySQL will prompt for the ‘username’ database password. Next you must set the access database rights. Log in to MySQL:

$ mysql -u username -p

$ GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES ON databasename.* TO ‘username’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘password’;

Run the installation script
