drupal-cookbook Build Status


Installs and configures Drupal; it creates the drupal db user, db password and the database; You will need to manually complete the installation step by visiting http://server_fqdn/install.php



Tested on Ubuntu 10.04, Debian Lenny. As long as the required cookbooks work (apache, php, mysql) it should work just fine on any other distributions.


Opscode cookbooks (

  • mysql
  • php
  • apache2
  • openssl (used to generate the secure random drupal db password)
  • postfix


  • drupal[:version] - version of drupal to download and install (default: 6.19)

  • drupal[:checksum] - sha256sum of the source tarball

  • drupal[:dir] - location to copy the drupal files. (default: /var/www/drupal)

  • drupal[:db][:database] - drupal database (default: drupal)

  • drupal[:db][:user] - drupal db user (default: drupal)

  • drupal[:db][:host] - durpal db host (default: localhost)

  • drupal[:db][:password] - drupal db password (randomly generated if not defined)

  • drupal[:src] - where to place the drupal source tarball (default: Chef::Config[:file_cache_path])

  • drupal[:drush][:version] - version of drush to download (default: 3.3)

  • drupal[:drush][:checksum] - sha256sum of the drush tarball

  • drupal[:drush][:dir] - where to install the drush file. (default: /usr/local/drush)


Include the drupal recipe to install drupal on your system; this will enable also the drupal cron:

include_recipe "drupal"

Include the drush recipe to install drush:

include_recipe "drupal::drush"

If you want to install a different version you just have to customize the version attribute and checksum (sha256 checksum on the source)
