    3 If you already have an existing site setup at May First/People Link, you should [wiki:create_hosting_order create a new hosting order] for your Drupal installation. Then, you can more easily migrate your existing site to your new Drupal site.
    4 
    5 If you are starting from scratch, you can enable Drupal by following these directions:
    6 
    7  * [wiki:secure_shell Secure shell] to your primary server.
    8 
    9  * Run the command:
    10 {{{
    11 mf-drupalize
    12 }}}
    13 
    14 You will be prompted to create a database and database user (be sure to record the names of the database, database user, and database password).
    15 
    16 When you are done you will be prompted to open a web browser to complete the installation.

    18 == How to I remove a Drupal installation? ==
    19 
    20 We do not have an automated way to remove a Drupal installation.
    21 
    22 You can do it manually by following these steps.
    23 
    24  * Change into your web directory
    25  * Remove the following files and directories:
    26 {{{
    27 .htaccess
    28 cron.drupal.php
    29 cron.php

    46         * Please post a ticket to have your database dropped for you.
    47 
    48 == Notes for MFPL administrators ==
    49 
    50 You can no longer run mf-drupalize as the root user.
    51 
    52 Instead, first create the database by running `mf-mysql-create` (as root). Then:
    53 
    54 {{{
    55 su <user-that-owns-web-site-to-be-created> -
    56 mf-drupalize
    57 }}}
    58 
    59 Press n when prompted to create the database.
