MidCamp 2017

Greetings Drupalers,

 Once again is has been a while (OUCH! It’s been 7 months) since I last made a post here.  That is because, unfortunately, I have been divorced from Drupal for the last 6 months.  It was not of my doing, but there are those times that the real world steps in and dictates one’s priorities, and taking a contract position to do phone support in the Networking field does pull one away. 

UTF-8 & Drupal 7.50

If you read my previous post I mentioned that Drupal v7.50 has it's apparent difficulties. I spoke of the issue of the consequences of physically uninstalling modules without removing them from the database. Now I will talk some about the other error that surfaces with the upgrade to Drupal 7.50.

Drupal 7.50 - Just When I Thought I Might Be Getting This Stuff

Funny thing happened with Drupal 7.50, errors started appearing that I had no clue about.  It started telling me about modules not being where they were supposed to be and about a utf-8 not being enabled.  

I was immediately frustrated by this.  All I wished to do was a "simple" upgrade and I'm getting hit with problems.  I abandoned what I was doing and went into hiding.  I have been doing drupal for coming on my 3rd year, and it seems like everytime I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of things something happens and it makes me feel like I'm back to being a beginner.  

LNMP stack for Drupal 8

In my previous post i mentioned taking notes on how I'm building my new LNMP stack to support my Drupal 8 sites.  Below are those notes. I noted the commands used as well as a few links to get more info for some of the functionality.  

# After installing Debian 8.3
# Update Repository
apt-get update

# install Nginx & Mariadb
apt-get install nginx mariadb-server mariadb-client

Head is spinning

Yes, I know it's been a while.  I can now say I'm a professional Drupaler now.  I'm working with a guy I met at the Fox Valley Meetup.  I'm doing a lot of PC/Server?Networking for him as well as some Drupal so I am now paid to do Drupal.  He also has several Web Based Services that he offers through his business so I am also dusting off the limited experience I have had with PHP to start cleaning up some of the code he has written in preparation to rewrite some of it.
