Need some help for installing Drupal 7.7...


Hello:

I am trying to set up Drupal 7.7 on my Slackware 13.37 32-bit Lenovo PC.

I seem to have succeeded in installing Apache & MySql.
I have created a MySql database called test.
I have extracted Drupal 7.7 to the /var/www/htdocs/Drupal-7.7 directory.

At this point, I am stumped.

The 'Drupal 7 Bible' says:
'Point your browser to the directory where you placed your Drupal files to see the Drupal installation wizard appear.'

I do not know how to do this, i.e. I do not know what character string I am suppose to type into the firefox browser.

Any help would be appreciated. Also, if I have made any mistakes up to this point, I would like to know.

Thanks,

When you have started apache and mysql you can locate your Drupal-install at http://localhost/. Also you can use your browser as a file-browser (open file) to point it at the right file (/var/www/htdocs/) where you extracted Drupal (i believe you need the file 'install.php'). But actually it is more a Drupal issue, than a Slackware matter.

Sorry.

I'll mark as SOLVED and go elsewhere.

No apologies needed. I hope you find a solution for your problem, the right answer to your question. I bet you may get more results for instance in the section 'software' at linuxquestions.org. Good luck!
