Foodtruck Permissions Google Doc



  • php 5.6 (minimum, with extensions: php5-mysql, php5-gd, php5-curl, php5-fpm)
  • A MySQL server (MariaDB recommended)
  • Webserver (nginx recommended, apache will probably work too)


First you need to install composer.

Note: The instructions below refer to the global composer installation. You might need to replace composer with php composer.phar (or similar) for your setup.

Initial Setup Steps

  • Clone this repository and delete its drupal-project directory
  • Create a new project directory with the composer create-project command
  • Restore this repository's files with git reset
  • Install this reposirtory's custom project dependencies with composer install, this command will take a while to finish
git clone
cd foodtrucks
rm -rf drupal-project
composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev drupal-project --stability dev --no-interaction
git reset --hard HEAD
cd drupal-project
composer install
  • Configure your server, set the site root to the drupal-project/web/ directory
  • Configure a database and db user in your server. The database name, user credentials, the path to the deploy folder, and a $settings hash need to be entered into the site settings.php file
    (here is an example settings.php snippet to append to the drupal-project/web/sites/default/settings.php file)
$databases['default']['default'] = array (
  'database' => 'DB_NAME',
  'username' => 'DB_USERNAME',
  'password' => 'DB_PASSWORD',
  'prefix' => '',
  'host' => 'localhost',
  'port' => '3306',
  'namespace' => 'Drupal\\Core\\Database\\Driver\\mysql',
  'driver' => 'mysql',
$config_directories['sync'] = '../deploy';
$settings['hash_salt'] = hash('sha256', serialize($databases));

then replace the DB_NAME, DB_USERNAME, and DB_PASSWORD placeholders

Populate the database with a fresh install (either install.php or drush si)

TODO: Update here to use stuff from quickinstall script

(cd /root/foodtrucks/drupal-project/web && drush cedit --file="/root/foodtrucks/drupal-project/deploy/" -y)
(cd /root/foodtrucks/drupal-project/web && drush cedit shortcut.set.default --file="/root/foodtrucks/drupal-project/deploy/shortcut.set.default.yml" -y)
  • from the web directory use drush to install the site
cd drupal-project/web
drush si --account-pass=admin -y

(if you don't have drush 8.x installed I believe you can use the one provided in the vendor/drush directory: ../vendor/drush/drush/drush)

  • with a browser go to

Change Database UUID's to match our configuration UUID's

  • lookup values from deploy folder and then edit the site db-config to replace the uuid with the one from the deploy/ file
  • delete the last 2 lines with the hash from the db-config _core: default_config_hash:
  • repeat for the shortcut if needed
cd drupal-project/web
cat ../deploy/
drush cedit

cat ../deploy/shortcut.set.default.yml
drush cedit shortcut.set.default

Import Configuration

  • finally, import config using drush
cd drupal-project/web
drush cim  

some final notes

  • from web folder, drush cex will export config to the deploy folder
  • from project root folder, composer require drupal/MODULE_NAME:8.x will usually install the latest version of that module or theme in their contrib folder and then update the composer.json and composer.lock files
  • from project root folder, commit and push changes in deploy config, composer.json and composer.lock
cd to your project root, above the drupal root.
cd ../.. from web directory
git add .
git commit -m "YOUR COMMIT MESSAGE"
git push
You can’t perform that action at this time.
