[Drupal]Drupal 8 Sandbox

Installation of Drupal 8 Sandbox

Why Use the Sandbox version?
If you want to give drupal a try, but you're unsure of how it'll look like or want to check how it works, the sandbox version is just for you. If you already know how to set up drupal on your lamp server, then you'll have no problem at all to set up the sandbox version. If, somehow, you can't figure it out, then you can just follow the simple steps below and you'll be there.

In the steps below, we'll use Sandbox version of Drupal to generate a new issue, and patch it using Git.


  • Git

  • Steps:

    Step 1: Clone it
    Start by opening your terminal and clone the repository by running the following the command:

    git clone --branch 8.x drupal-sandbox
    This command will clone drupal 8 sandbox and the all the files will be in a folder 'drupal-sandbox'. You can change the name of the folder to any name you want.
    After cloning, change your directory and move into the folder. Make a copy of the default.settings.php file inside sites/default/ and create a new directory called sites/default/files.

    Ensure that you make both of them writable by changing their permissions.

    Step 2: Installation
    Open up your browser and run the installation by running localhost.
    Note: You can check my blog post on how to install Drupal 8(Not Sandbox) on LAMP Server.
