I am creating a profile for my site.

So I basically have the following files:


Evertime I run

drush make myproject.make

the drupal files + modules are copied but during install I only see the profiles: standard and minimal.

How to make my profile myproject visible in the list?


I copied my profile inside the profile folder of a Drupal installation. Now my profile is being listed. But I prefer this should be done from a script.

I asume I should edit the make file to copy the new profile inside the profile folder. I am not sure this can be done from within the make file therefore I assume should run a .sh file instead.

I am waiting for some suggestions.

  • Where is myproject.module?

    @Triskelion the .module file is not used when creating installation profiles but the myproject.profile is used instead: see drupal.org/node/1022020 Apr 4, 2013 at 9:15

You need a custom sh file that does the drush make, and moves the profile files for you.
