Installing Drupal on Pantheon
Pantheon offers up to two free development environments per user account. The weeklong “Drupal for Digital Humanities Projects” workshop at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) has students use Pantheon to build the example site, as well as their own project. Pantheon’s website has the most up-to-date documentation, and the following list is a round-up of useful pointers to that content:
- Getting started: an overview of how to use Pantheon
- Note: if you want to use Pantheon’s Git-based workflow for managing your code, you’ll need to create and add SSH keys. Drupal for Humanists assumes you’ll be using SFTP mode, which allows you to add modules via the Drupal UI
- A description of the Pantheon workflow
Applying core updates (note: this assumes you are already in Git mode. Be sure to commit your changes in SFTP mode before switching to Git mode.
