San Francisco State University moves to Drupal

What is a website? For colleges and universities everywhere, a website is an opportunity to tell a story.

Thanks to this opportunity, schools depend on websites more than ever to deliver rich, engaging experiences. When looking for a CMS capable of delivering this experience, schools naturally look at Drupal. Today, about 30 percent of colleges and universities in the United States use Drupal to power their main .edu site.

The Power of Drupal Multi-site Part 2: Hosting Infrastructure

When Acquia came out with the Drupal Stack (DAMP) Installer, many new users likely got very excited. You can use this installer to download and install everything you need to get a Drupal web content management environment up and running with a single click on a Mac or Windows system. But while it was a good way to get Drupal up and running quickly, it didn't have everything you may have wanted.

According to the results of a survey Acquia put out, the most requested feature for the DAMP Installer was to be able to set up multiple virtual hosts for multiple Drupal websites.

Once you have your Drupal environment up and running, you can create and configure new websites by simply clicking New in the Settings…Sites Tab.
