Name the tables

Executing the queries at the mysql prompt (link to ncsu) to get the desired result, then executing the sql commands in phpmyadmin interface and exporting the result.

Drupal jujubi's

This should have been the first topic in this place which made use of drupal as the CMS. Now it is here because lately I have migrated from one web hosting to another[with screenshot of intodns ]; which almost made me do everything other than keeping the blog content same, reason was to make use of only 32MB space for php memory limit(asked for 64MB php memory limit from the previous hoster). Hopefully I am reproducing everything as experienced or else drupal will display necessary hints on what to do next.

a) Installing drupal(localhost)

Follow up - Fatal error: Allowed memory size.....

Follow up on the previous blog entry
Until yesterday I presumed without verifying that I have set the php memory limit to 128MB from within drupal in settings.php  in hosting environment as I have done it in my test environment but only when the fatal error msg was displayed I verified the mem limit which was not affected by the changes in the settings.php.

Multisite vs Multiple site

Just another set of terms for deranged mind from deranged mind. It's nothing but
1. one drupal instance hosting multiple site and
2. multiple site hosted on different instance of drupal
Some call instance as code base ... it's OK if the terms don't confuse you.
various materials are there on the topic with really easy set of instruction(s) to carry out the task.

Changing only the setup of blog in drupal

After some tweeking the layout of some contents like tag cloud, archivelist where included in the blog in consistent with the site theme.
One important point is for each module one can create a tpl file like for blog I created node-blog.tpl.php and do whatever comes in your mind.

Localhost to public domain

Uploading the files from your HDD to remote site is fairly simple, use ftp, scp. Copy these files in the document root
Now with the transferring of info in the database (MySQL), export the tables in your database using phpmyadmin and then import them in the public domain using the phpmyadmin.
Before that remember to create a database and the user.
change the mysql entry in the settings.php file and that's it you are ready with you virtual space

Applying patch to drupal module manually

In order to get the additional feature of drupal there was a patch released by mattman (http://drupal.org/files/issues/hide_submenu_01.patch) which to my dismay did not apply the patch to the module. So had to do it manually and since the patch was not that big I could easily carry out the task. There were helpful links in drupal on how to get the thing done.
