Install TheMAG as composer-managed Thunder site

  1. Unzip the INSTALLATION/ to your development environment.
  2. The package provides a ready-made composer.json file which will install all you need to kick-start your composer-managed Thunder site. Run the composer install command from inside "themag-thunder-project" directory. Composer installs Drupal itself in the "docroot" directory (themag-thunder-project/docroot). Consider that on a production environment you have to configure your domain to point in that directory.
cd themag-thunder-project

composer install
  1. Use Drush to install TheMAG. Change db_user, db_pass, and db_name with your database info. The --account-name is your Drupal username and the --account-pass your Drupal password. The last line "thunder_module_configure_form.install_modules_thunder_demo=NULL" tells the installer not to install Thunder demo content so that you can install TheMAG Demo content.
vendor/bin/drush site:install thunder \
--existing-config \
--db-url=mysql://db_user:db_password@localhost/db_name  \
--account-name="demo" \
--account-pass="demo" \
--account-mail="" \
  1. When installation finishes, you can install the demo content:
vendor/bin/drush en -y themag_thunder_demo
