Installing Drupal 6 on Ubuntu 16.04/PHP 7

Posted under » Drupal on 13 February 2018

To be honest version 6 is my fav. Drupal. Version 7 and 8 is too resource hungry. Maybe for nostalgic reasons or I am just lazy to migrate to version 8.

You probably could tweak on your own but a kind soul has managed to get Drupal version 6 to work in php7/Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.

You have to change MySQL to MySQLi under your settings file.

However, it is recommended that you migrate from Drupal ver. 6-7 to 8 to future proof your work.
