We're Drupalers who only recently started digging deep into CiviCRM and we're finding some really cool things! This series of videos is meant to share those secrets with other Drupalers, in case they come across a project that could use them. :-)

You may recall the blog post that David put out way back in August 2017. He gave some very detailed instructions on how you can install CiviCRM on Drupal 8!

We have some new Drupal versions released since August, and we've had some requests to demonstrate how to go through some of the steps. So, I'm going to do just that!

Every step will be followed quite literally. Note that David assumed this was being installed on a development system running Linux. Since I'm running a Mac, this should be a great cross-platform test.

Watch the screencast to see if I run into any issues with the instructions:

Some highlights from the video:

  • Very quick install of Drupal 8 on a Mac running MAMP
  • Download and installation of CiviCRM
  • Brief comments along the way as I follow the steps
  • Finish with a working Drupal 8 + CiviCRM site!

Good video,
Is there also an guide so the civicrm will use a separate civcrm Database... This looks like we only used the Drupal DB.

Wo would a civicrm update work?

On behalf of Elliot, thanks :-)

Someone recently asked this on the article (as opposed to video) about installing CiviCRM on Drupal 8 - here was my response there:

That article links to instructions (which we're constantly updating) with the individual commands to run to install CiviCRM. There's a line in there that says "RE-RUN THE COMMANDS BELOW TO UPGRADE CIVICRM". Basically, you just re-run the commands below that line if you're upgrading CiviCRM, as opposed to installing it for the first time.

Please let us know how it goes if you try it!
