Drupal 7 is provided in Ubuntu 12.04. I’ll show you how to get it up and running!

1. Install the package drupal7:

$ sudo apt-get install drupal7

2. Create the following apache site configuration file:

$ sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/drupal7

Alias /drupal7 "/usr/share/drupal7"
< Directory /usr/share/drupal7 >
  Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
< /Directory >

3. Enable the site:

$ sudo a2ensite drupal7

4. Restart apache:

$ sudo service apache2 reload

5. Go to to complete the installation.


Done! The server alias can of course be changed to anything desired.
