1. Make a directory to house the Drupal 8 project and code
a. mkdir [dir project name]
2. Run composer
a. composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev .
3. Run .mkv-host script
a. sudo ./mk-vhost-conf --set-hosts [domain name] --drupal
4. Copy the Drupal 8 project and code to the vhost dir
a. mv [dir project name] /srv/www/
5. Set permissions to the new web dir
a. sudo chown -R [username]:www-data .
b. find . -type d -exec chmodWeek 6 thru 8 has been a week of research, investigation, and recovering.
Researching CI/CD, investigating best hosting, and with recovering; well, my

because Apple decided to eliminate 32-bit software.
As I continue my exploration of Drupal 8, I'm now trying to solve several big
1. How to make the site CI/CD capable. There is a lot of information on the web
on this and a lot of paid services that caFor over 13 years the Bay Area Drupal Camp has gathered thousands from a
worldwide community of Drupal users, developers, marketers and content
specialists to share their expertise, and level up their skills. This year I
decided to take the opportunity to present ADD at the developer conference. I
used my Ricoh experience as a Solutions Engineer and the knowledge gained from
my master’s class to put together a presentation on how ADD can work with
architecting systems or systems of systems with I'm trying to see if I can use Lightning as the base profile for a future site
that I want to create. So far, I'm on step 0, trying to understand how Drupal 8
with composer works. I want to ensure that I can create a development
environment, push to a testing server, and from testing to staging and then
staging to production.
I hope to document my findings in this blog so that I can share my experience.

Installing PHP 7 and ComposI’m excited to take my first steps in defining, designing, implementing and
project managing a new application that will provide a Support System to the
Drupal community. As a first step I have two items that I need to prepare and
research so that I can get started on the project to create a Drupal 8 Support
System site. First, I need to learn best practices on git so that I can create
an environment model with a 4-teir development process. This will allow me to
push my code up from local to dev
