Launch a Drupal 8 site Using Dev Desktop

Ready for review -- Last peer review: 12 Sep 2014
Steps: 
  1. Open the Acquia Control Panel application. Your Drupal Stack should start automatically.
  2. Click the "Settings..." button.
    Click Settings button
  3. Click the "Config" tab, and then change the PHP version under "Default PHP version" to 5.3.x. (You must use PHP 5.3 with Drupal 8.)
  4. Click the OK button to save your changes.
  5. Go back to settings by clicking the "Settings..." button. Click the "Sites" tab and then the "Import..." button.
    On the sites tab, click Import button
  6. In the "Codebase" section at the top click the "Browse..." button to select a Site Path.
    Browse button
  7. Navigate to the Drupal 8 directory you created earlier and select it.
    Navigate to site.
  8. Click the "Open" button.
  9. In the Database section, select the "Create new database" option.
    Create New db
  10. In "New DB Name" give this database a name of your choosing. Example: mynewwebsite (no spaces, lowercase).
  11. In the "Domain" section enter a name for your site in the "Subdomain:" field. Typically, this name will match closely with the database name you selected and become part of your localhost URL. Example: mynewwebsite (no spaces, lowercase).
  12. Click the "Import" button. Dev Desktop will import the site and open a web browser with the Drupal installation screen.
    Click Import
  13. On the database configuration page you will need to fill in the following information:
    • Enter the database name you just created in the Dev Desktop settings.
    • Enter the database user as root
    • Leave the database user password blank
    • Click on the Advanced fieldset to expose more options
    • Enter the database host as 127.0.0.1
    • Enter the database port as 33066
  14. Continue the regular Drupal installation.

On a Mac OSX environment database host and database port are preconfigured with the correct host and port information so the last two points can be omitted and accessing the Advanced fieldset is not necessary

Nevertheless, almost all businesses are run only by one or two people and they are very limited budget. They can not reach the marketing consultant. They are more urgent needs and their resources are generally too limited.

On Windows 8, the host and port are preconfigured. No need to expose the advanced options to configure host and port.

One minor issue:

  • This sentence needs some help: In the "Domain" section enter a name for your site in the "Subdomain:" field. Typically, this name will match closely with the database name you selected and become part of your localhost URL. Example: mynewwebsite (no spaces, lowercase). I think it might be missing instructions for subdomains? Or does this mean ignore the entry box for domain and JUST use subdomain? Context is important, especially with us ladder greenhorns. Something like: In the section labelled "Domain" enter a name for your site. In the section labelled Subdomain enter (not sure what would go here.)

Don't want to be a pain or anything; if we're making the effort to write out instructions they should be as clear. In a few instances above, also, during configuration of the install the instructions don't match the specific field names. What goes where is fairly obvious but tweaking could make them match and up the instructions clarity.

This step specifies the wrong version of PHP for Drupal 8:

Click the "Config" tab, and then change the PHP version under "Default PHP version" to 5.3.x. (You must use PHP 5.3 with Drupal 8.)

Should be PHP 5.4.

I agree with the Autolyst, the last two points could be discarded and getting to the advanced field set is not important. Anyway, it provides a great piece of information and thank you very much for posting this! OmniTech Support
