I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 on a test/developments system. I've installed LAMP and myphpadmin and was looking to install Drupal 7. I also want to be develop non-drupal sites on this test server as well. How do I go about setting this up? Here is what I need to do.

1. Install Drupal 7.
2. Configure to develop non-drupal sites.

Thanks but it does not cover installation of Drupal 7 in detail and doesn't address adding additional sites to Apache.

Have you checked the Drupal 7 installation guide here: http://drupal.org/documentation/install

And here's info about Hosting multiple websites with Apache2: http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/412

And here for Ubuntu: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=794248

You can add websites to your server by creating new users and adding name based virtual hosts or IP based hosts if you have more than one IP address assigned to the box.  Do you have some sort of management tool to manage your machine?  Like Cpanel?  Cpanel is a bit expensive, you can use an open source manager -- WebMin.  With WebMin, you can add and edit your sites, as well as do all sorts of other things, like install software easily.

Here is a link for WebMin for Ubuntu:

Drupal is a content management system and doesn't have anything to do with adding users for your server or configuring virtual hosting.  Say you have added 10 domains with virtual hosting, 2 could be Drupal sites, 2 could be Joomla, 2 could be WordPress, and the rest could be without a framework at all.

I never really got a good walk-through of how to install Drupal. I've seen all the links before and they left me needing more. That is why I asked on Experts Exchange
