Check your version
This tutorial covers a topic in Drupal 8 which may or may not be the version you're using. We're keeping this tutorial online as a courtesy to users of Drupal 8, but we consider it archived.
In this first step of the Learn Drupal Ladder we will install Drupal on our computer. This follows the instructions to Install Drupal locally on learndrupal.org. We start by getting and installing the Dev Desktop, which is an all-in-one web server which comes with Drupal 7. We then install our own Drupal 8 site in Dev Desktop.
If you do not wish to use Dev Desktop as your local web server, we have videos for three other web servers, based on operating system:
- Installing WampServer (for Windows)
- Installing MAMP web server (for Mac)
- Installing a web server on Ubuntu
