Why you should be excited about Drupal 8

If you're a developer who has worked mostly in Drupal over the last several years and haven't come up for air and taken in the general direction of PHP application programming, you're in for an interesting ride. Many of us who developed our programming chops with Drupal have taken our cues from the Drupal codebase itself, where nearly all functionality is wrapped in functions, and where most big problems were solved in-house rather than being farmed out to third party libraries.

Bridge the gap between Drupal & Non-Drupal content using RDFa/Semantic Data

Problem at hand!

Search is a hard thing to achieve, it really is. Let me show this by using an example of a restaurant chain that wants to add Drupal as their homepage of their whole chain. Of course, like many other organizations they do not only have Drupal running but also a subset of other web frameworks of open and closed source systems.

Le passage à l'Open Source une nouvelle priorité

Frans

Alors même que le nombre des entreprises habituées aux technologies open source augmente, un nouveau phénomène insolite commence à se dessiner. Beaucoup de sociétés, loin de considérer les logiciels open source comme d’éventuels substituts des logiciels propriétaires, en ont fait leur choix de prédilection pour tous leurs projets informatiques. Et c’est seulement après avoir exploré de fond en comble toutes les possibilités offertes par les solutions open source susceptibles de répondre à leurs besoins qu’elles envisagent effectivement d’utiliser des logiciels propriétaires.

The S-Files: Acquia Drupal Stack installer Got packet bigger than max_allowed_packet bytes

Tech Support Case Studies

The S-Files are a taste of the support that you get with a subscription to Acquia Support. Our support team helps you solve technical problems relating to your Drupal sites.

The Acquia Drupal Stack installer is a major productivity booster for getting up and running in the development of your Drupal site. Sometimes, though, Drupal modules like to cache huge data packets in the database. This results in an error in your browser that says this:

Got packet bigger than ‘max_allowed_packet’ bytes

This is an indication that the data being sent between Drupal and the database is large, and exceeds the default setting.

Fortunately the fix for this is easy. In the application installation directory of the stack installer you'll find the following directory and file:

Applications/acquia-drupal on my Mac

Edit the my.ini file with whatever text editor you like, and add these lines to the end:

#Max packets
max_allowed_packet = 128M

Now stop and start the Acquia Drupal Stack using the Acquia Drupal Control Panel, and the new setting will come into effect. This should solve your max_allowed_packet problem!

Stacking up Drupal

Why the Acquia Drupal Stack is now the Drupal development stack of choice. Drupal On-ramp - Personal experiences at Drupal events in recent months and reports from friends and colleagues indicate that the Acquia Drupal Stack Installer is really changing the installation experience for new users. This incredibly fast, painless on-ramp experience - it lets you get right into "Drupalling" without fighting with ports, permissions, or database connections - is winning over new users at Drupal Camps around the world.

Assessing the Enterprise 2.0 marketplace in 2009: Robust and crowded

Social software platforms, including services such as Facebook and Twitter, have become one of the primary channels for communication amongst consumers this year, even eclipsing e-mail in some parts of the developed world.

The same however, can’t quite be said yet for the workplace. While the adoption numbers for social applications are still impressive in business (about half of all large organizations), actual adoption and use is lagging significantly behind the non-business world as organizations take the time to assess a range of issues with enterprise social computing, including appropriateness, security, control, management methods, and roll-out strategies.

However, given the widespread interest and popularity in social tools these days, it’s becoming a pretty safe bet that you’ll be seeing them in some form on a workplace intranet near you. The question is in what form? The choices of social tools these days can be daunting and are only increasing rapidly, with new entries appearing weekly and existing ones being upgraded often. What’s increasingly needed is a detailed look at what’s currently available in business-class social software and how it sizes up, which we’ll try to do in high-level form here.

As we’ll see, since last year’s marketplace map, there has been a veritable explosion in social applications that are intended for use in business settings, both internally or externally. These offerings have a surprisingly wide range of features and so in this post I will explore one of the broadest and most important categories of business social software, Enterprise 2.0, in detail. I’ve also included a pretty comprehensive map of the marketplace for 2009 as defined by the products that are available today (or are highly anticipated and soon to be released, such as Google Wave.)

Gartner and Acquia's Raison d'Etre

I was re-reading the October, 2008 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Social Software last week. Gartner of course, is a key analyst for many enterprises evaluating IT strategies or making tactical decisions on software deployments. We've been speaking to them about the convergence of web content management and social software, something we call "social publishing".
