Solution 1. Devel + Drush: You can use devel drush command for module re-installation with all the module dependencies: drush devel-reinstall modulename There is also alias for this command drush dre modulename Solution 2. Drush: This is something that I would typically use drush for drush pm-disable mymodule drush pm-uninstall mymodule drush pm-...

You only need to move your modules to the your new location and rebuild the regisry. When the registry rebuilds the path to the modules will be updated. Check registry_rebuild(). Rescans all code in modules or includes directories, storing the location of each interface or class in the database. Although, I would recommend you to backup you database ...

There's just one step, using module_enable(): $modules = array('module1', 'module2'); // Array of module names $enable_dependencies = TRUE; // Whether or not to enable dependant modules module_enable($modules, $enable_dependencies);

You shouldn't get your install hook to run updates. When a module is installed for the first time no updates should be necessary. Updates are used when the module already is installed (the database or variables have been created). In that case, you don't want to reinstall the module as it will wipe all data, instead you create update_N hooks. Drupal will ...

You shouldn't really delete any files. If you really wanted to, you could delete the install file and various txt files, but that's about it. A better solution if you are afraid of security is to not let the files be accessed through the web server. Drupal only use the index.php file for serving content.

I think you didn't select English in the first step, and probably your Internet connection is behind a proxy and I guess Drupal doesn't support it. You can select English and continue or: Go to Translation server and download the specific language, the Spanish for example Copy the download file in sites/default/files/translations Continue with ...

The purpose of the hooks is different. hook_install() is invoked when a module is installed; it means the module was not previously installed, and therefore, it doesn't need to be updated. hook_update_N() is invoked when a module is already installed, and it needs to be updated. If there are some tasks that needs to be done both when the module is ...

NOTE The issue described in the Question has now be fixed in the latest Drush version. No, Drush does not need to be installed as root. I've submitted Drush pull #2246 to update the current Drush install instructions. This install method fixes the issue as per Drush pull #2246: # Download latest stable release using the code below or browse to github....

Please make sure your webserver (nginx/apache) is using the same PHP version as your cli one. For example, you may encounter this issue if your cli PHP version is PHP 7.1 and your webserver is using PHP 7.0.

Have a look at the Drush make project: http://drupal.org/project/drush_make There is also a companion website at: http://drushmake.me/ This website allows you to select the modules you want to package with Drupal, and produces a Drush-ready makefile. There are other varieties of this functionality out there, so I advise experimenting and testing with ...

The WYSIWYG module is not compatible with CKEditor 4, because CKEditor 4 uses double quotes " around it's version string, where CKEditor 3 used single quotes '. This breaks the version detection regex in the WYSIWYG module. You could use CKEditor 3, like Bruno suggests, or you could patch the WYSIWYG module like described here https://drupal.org/comment/...

The problem is in the data array change name by label: $role = \Drupal\user\Entity\Role::create(array('id' => 'client', 'label' => 'Client')); $role->save(); Or you can use: //your data array $data = array('id' => 'client', 'label' => 'Client'); //creating your role $role = \Drupal\user\Entity\Role::create($data); //saving your role $role-&...

This is an nginx configuration issue and discussed intensely on this page Yet curiously no solid solution could be offered. Some guy on an other page proposed a solution. I applied that proposed solution and can confirm that in works! To apply proposed solution go to your nginx configuration file under /etc/nginx/sites-available/ directory on Ubuntu and ...

Hopefully you're not installing Drupal 8 in the hope of using it as a stable website...it's nowhere near ready yet :) That said, the reason you're getting the error is because the PHP const keyword has only been available for use in the global scope since PHP 5.3. Drupal 8 uses const in the global scope in a lot of places (correctly, as Drupal 8 will ...

You can do this in hook_requirements, from the documentation: During the 'install' phase, modules can for example assert that library or server versions are available or sufficient. Note that the installation of a module can happen during installation of Drupal itself (by install.php) with an installation profile or later by hand. As a consequence,...

Nothing wrong with that. It is recommend to have the config folder outside of the public web folder; Drupal just doesn't have that. To keep the installation simple for non-experienced users, it puts that folder in the files folder, which has to be writable anyway. Just create that folder and give Drupal write permission to it; you'll be fine.

You're missing the length property for the varchar column ('list'). length is required so the CREATE TABLE query will fail. From the Schema API docs: All parameters apart from 'type' are optional except that type 'numeric' columns must specify 'precision' and 'scale', and 'varchar' columns must specify 'length'.

Create the MODULENAME.views_default.inc file (replace MODULENAME with the name of your module), and copy the exported code in the implementation of hook_views_default_views() you write in that file. For example, the Views module implements node_views_default_views() for the Node module. The relevant parts for the front page view are the following ones. $...

I restored a backup from production locally and tried to just move things and hit admin/modules or to run registry_rebuild() but it didn't stop fatal errors from being thrown. This makes sense to me since some modules may use includes or whatever in their hook_init(), or you may have a menu router path set that depends on a module or include that Drupal can'...

The file's called .htaccess and it's in the root of the Drupal installation. A lot of operating systems hide files that start with a ., so that might be way you can't find it. If it's simply missing, just download a fresh copy of Drupal and copy the default .htaccess file from there.

Variables are cached, so deleting manually is fine so long as you invalidate that cache, e.g. db_delete('variable') ->condition('name', 'mymodule_%', 'LIKE') ->execute(); cache_clear_all('variables', 'cache_bootstrap');

Drupal 8 requires PHP 5.5.9 or higher (for short array syntax among other things). You'll need to upgrade your version of PHP. Source: System Requirements

There are a few things you can do to help debug your drush. Here is what you can try: Debug output Use drush cc all -vvv This will provide you with some valuable information in terms of what Drush is doing in the background and maybe show you the actual error message. Check your settings.php Depending on your setup you may be passing in environment ...

You need to have the PDO driver for MySQL installed for Drupal 7. This is indeed different from Drupal 6. Instructions are at http://drupal.org/requirements/pdo. I hope those instructions are sufficient for you.

Try the cool tool from Mark Sonnabaum: Drush Rebuild Project Paths. It automates the process; worked great for me. Uses Drush, of course. I will second the suggestion that you try this on a copy of your site database, though.

This happened to me with a couple of modules last week; the solution was simply to run cron, allowing the fields marked for deletion to actually be deleted. After that I could uninstall the module in question without issue.

To take a different angle: It's very possible to do this, but you shouldn't. Your web server user should not have the capacity to write to the web root (except for designated folders like the public files folder). You should therefore not be able to delete module folders from code. Doing so presents a security risk to your server. This is one of the checks ...

Yes it's safe to remove them. But I would recommend you not doing so. These modules are just tiny modules and it won't give more than 1 MB of space to your system. However, if you are no longer using a module, make sure you have uninstalled that module. If you had search module enabled and if you are no longer using it, disabling it and uninstalling it ...
