Installing Drupal 8

In order to install Drupal 8 within our local MAMP PRO server, we will need to perform a series of steps:

  1. We will need to grab a copy of the latest Drupal 8 release and extract the files to a location on our computer that will be the document root of our website.
  2. We will have to create a new host entry with the server name that we will want to use for our URL and point our host entry to the proper document root containing our Drupal 8 instance.
  3. We will have to create a MySQL database that we can point Drupal to during the installation process.

We will walk through each of these steps in detail to ensure that we all have a copy of Drupal 8 installed properly that we will build upon as we work through each lesson.
