I am attempting to install CiviCRM on a Drupal site. I am very new to working with and implementing Drupal. I have followed the CiviCRM install guide and keep getting the following error:

•      warning: include_once(sites/default/civicrm.settings.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mysite/public_html/lpdb/modules/civicrm/drupal/civicrm.module on line 248.
•      warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening 'sites/default/civicrm.settings.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mysite/public_html/lpdb/modules/civicrm/drupal/civicrm.module on line 248.
Oops! - The CiviCRM settings file (civicrm.settings.php) was not found in the expected location (sites/default/civicrm.settings.php).

Also - should I have installed CiviCRM in its own MySQL database?

This looks like it's trying to open up your civicrm settings file from the wrong location. Do you know where your settings file for civicrm is? This doesn't seem to be related to your database at all, but instead PHP's ability to open the config file.

In this case, the file "sites/default/civicrm.settings.php" (relative to the Drupal root) is the file that is not found. This directory is the same as the default settings.php that Drupal requires.

If you have a civicrm settings file for your install, you can always set up a symbolic link (if you're on UNIX or Linux) to the file so Drupal can find it.

I hope this helps!
