This article provides comprehensive instructions for configuring Drupal in our hosting environment. Before you begin, please read this article to see if your account meets the requirements for optimal Drupal operation.

You will need an MS SQL database for WordPress. If you don't have an MS SQL database yet, log in to Control Panel to set one up. Once the database has been provisioned, log back in to Control Panel and  go to the MS SQL Database Manager section of Control Panel and click the "Manage" link for the database. Make note of the server name, database name and user name (the default password will be your Control Panel password).
