Drupal camp at Darien Library was a wonderful experience and I took away some great ideas. There are a couple of modules that I have not yet installed and the conference has prompted me to get my act together. To start am going to install CCK and Views. John Blyberg gave a great talk about how to manage modules, I am going to attempt to follow his advice. The first module to install is the CCK (Content Creation Kit). I have created a directory called dl_modules (dl = downloaded) under the modules directory. This is where I am locating all my downloaded modules. I ftp’d the module to this directory and the uncompressed it. I logged into drupal as the adminstrator and ran update.php and everything installed. I repeated the process for the views module and again no errors.
