Install Drupal on Ubuntu 9.04

After installing the LAMP components, I am now going to install Drupal.

Following a thread on drupal.org:

In the last year the Drupal package was not in Debian/Ubuntu, now it is back. So after a fresh install of Jaunty, just type:
sudo apt-get install drupal6

and then you have to restart the webserver:
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

And you will see the Drupal install pages here:


You should now be at this page:

And the next steps finish the installation process.

Here goes:

- Click > Install Drupal in English

Configure Site

- Site name : localhost
- Site e-mail address: localhost@localhost.com
- I put my own email as the Administrator email
