My drupal site is down. According to my web host, it has been infected with PHP based malware. Their recommendation was to backup any data (such as images or style sheets) and remove all of the Drupal installed files and malware. Then, upload a new copy of Drupal from the Drupal website and restore that data. I am not sure which directories I should copy over to the new installation. I know enough to copy over the settings.php so that it will connect to the same database. Past that, I am uncertain. Can anyone help me out?

In my Drupal 7 Website, I have called an Ajax function by the click of a  button to do some Database modifications by different queries. Everything goes well but in the end I need to remove the cache also via code. My file is in /templates folder. I have tried various search functions of drupal to clear cache but nothing works.

Can any drupal 7 expert guide that how to clear the cache.

Note:  I am working on my custom functionality to Revert the Page contents to the last state. Everything goes well but when  I clear the cache then user will be able to see fresh content otherwise not. So I need to clear cache via my ajax code.

Looking forward for reply.

Thanks

I am trying to configure an ubuntu (14.04 LTS) linux server with apparmor to protect the Apache2 web server, but I can't find any best practice or how-to guides for this specific purpose, only some basic guides for apparmor with the default profiles which do not include apache2 configuration. The ubuntu web server is running Apache2, Drupal 7, and MySQL. Is there a basic template for the AppArmor-Apache2 config that I should be implementing for basic security or is this something that has to be specific to the site?

Need help with Drupal - creating a link for a file folder. I have created a landing page and need to add a link to a folder containing files; the person accessing the landing page will click the, basically right now a line of text and be taken to a folder they can read/download using the user name and password they are given via an email. I am new to Drupal and I am thus stuck at this stage. Tried searching but could not find exactly what I was looking for.

In a Drupal 7 site, we have a node entity type for stored documents.  This type has two custom fields - year and reference - which uniquely identify the node.  These values look something like shown below, with the format being "<reference><hyphen><year>".
S123-2015
S456-2013
S1145-2015

Open in new window

I'm receiving a list of these document references (perhaps hundreds at a time) and need an efficient way to find the corresponding node IDs.  What's the best way to do this?

This is Drupal 7 with Commerce installed.  Suddenly the menu item 'Çustomer profiles' below 'Store' gave a White Screen of Death. The reason was that the path in the menu item was different from the path in the original View. So I went to the Menu and corrected the path. Since then the entire option 'Store' has disappeared from the menu.
So I added a menu item 'Store', but that now gives page not found. How do I get my menu back.
(The Drupal documentation warns for disappearing menus, but give no insructions).

I have a website using Drupal 7.54 along with a database. I typically use phpMyAdmin to access the database. It usually takes about 4 minutes just to get to the main page on phpMyAdmin after logging in; viewing the databases and tables takes a long time to load as well. Since I am using Drupal, there is going to be a lot of tables stored (tables are innoDB). I have used a module to clear the revision tables, tried setting $cfg['MaxExactCount'], changing the "host" value from "localhost" to "127.0.0.1", updating phpMyAdmin, and changing the theme to its original display. What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Notes:

Database server Server: Localhost via UNIX socket Server type: Percona Server Server version: 5.6.32-78.1-log - Percona Server (GPL), Release 78.1, Revision 8bb53b6 Protocol version: 10 Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8) Web server

Apache Database client version: libmysql - 5.6.32-78.1 PHP extension: mysqliDocumentation curlDocumentation mbstringDocumentation PHP version: 5.6.29 Version Information: 4.7.3

Also, lately I have been getting the error - mysqli_real_connect(): (HY000/1040): Too many connections, after I change the theme to its original display.

Cloud Class® Course: Ruby Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

I have someone who wants me to send or redirect all 404 errors to the main page of a website. We are using Drupal 7.54. On the site information page (.../admin/config/system/site-information) in the 'Error Pages' block, it allows me to put a link for 'Default 403 (access denied) page' and 'Default 404 (not found) page.' I just tried typing "node" for the 404, so it would redirect to the main page of the website. However, this does NOT redirect me to the main page. It does redirect, but not to the main page. What am I doing wrong? What am I missing? Could the answer be somewhere in includes/common.inc (similar to what was found on https://www.drupal.org/node/178653#comment-985665)? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have no issue connecting to Acquia using FileZilla using SFTP, but when I try the exact same .ppk file and credentials, it's saying that my username and password aren't correct. I'm looking for help on how I can connect to Acquia's server using Dreamweaver. Can you explain how to do this (since using the same credentials and ppk file that I use with FileZilla isn't working)??  Thanks, Gary

I’ll try to make this short and succinct.  I have a Drupal 8 theme that I purchased (I won't name names) and all was good for the first month but then I noticed that whenever I made system changes to the site I would get errors like this (especially when I did a configuration Import):

Configuration block.block.footer depends on the ntv_block_background module that will not be installed after import.

This specific module does not exist, that I can find, but I believe that it is a module that the developer used during development and did not uninstall it correctly when he decided he did not want to use it anymore.  So the data that I acquired from the theme’s SQL was bad to begin with.  I have tried contacting the original author but I get no reply and have given up on that channel.

Digging Deeper: In the SQL database under the Config table is a data blob that contains references to this module in about 63 different data blobs.  a relevant section of the data looks like this:

s:20:"ntv_block_background";a:8:{s:7:"disable";s:7:"disable";s:5:"color";s:7:"#000000";s:8:"bg_image";a:0:{}s:13:"bg_image_type";s:7:"default";s:9:"bg_repeat";s:2:"no";s:17:"bg_image_position";s:0:"";s:13:"bg_image_size";s:0:"";s:18:"background_overlay";s:0:"";}

My Question: There is too many references to remove by hand, Is there a utility (drush or other) to remove meta-data from a module that I no longer have access to and purge the unused data so that it does not …

If you Google something I notice that some websites are just random blogs or options of a product or something. I notice that some not all are made by WordPress or another CMS.

My question is do people pay to just give an option or blog about something fake? I know that for a free WordPress site they include "wordpress" in the link. WordPress' I've seen don't have this watermark.

Would like to know how this works.

I had this question after viewing redirect certain certain urls to a subdomain on a different server.

I have a particular problem now which, in the meantime I've found a work-around for, but I don't understand why I'm having this problem. I created a series of rewrite matching redirect rules in the htaccess file that points those urls back to our previous server, which now has a subdomain. I have a set of urls that contain query strings that contain spaces (for instance: www.imj.org.il/artcenter/newsite/en/?artist=Abu Kaf, Ali&list=A). When the url gets redirected, the space in the url gets encrypted to %2520 instead of %20 and because of that, the query string is not recognized. I'd like to know why that extra "52" is inserted into the querystring? Here is my redirect rule:
RewriteRule ^artcenter/newsite/en(.*)$ http://museum.imj.org.il/artcenter/newsite/en/$1 [R=301,NC,L]
I should also add that the redirect is to a windows server which might explain this?
Thanks for your help.

I keep trying to add in the code below using full html and no filters are turn on. It needs to stay this way and works on my test page outside of drupal:

<div data-is data-is-access-token="123454626.abc.156162"></div>

but it keeps changing it to do this which is wrong:

<div data-is="" data-is-access-token="123454626.abc.156162"></div>

Can i just turn off all html correction? I don't need it.
