HOW TO INSTALL DRUPAL manually?
In some cases you will need to install Drupal manually instead of using an auto installer.
In this section of the tutorial we will show you how to achieve this so you can start building your new project on your hosting account with us right away.
The first step you should perform is to download the latest stable version of the application from the official Drupal website.
Once you have downloaded the archive containing the application you should access the server where you hosting account resides and locate or create the folder in which you want to place your new website.
Next you should extract the application zip file on your local computer and upload the files and folders to the root folder of the script mentioned above. You can find more information on how to do that here.
Since the application requires also a database for its functioning you should now create such on the server. You can do that following the instructions in this article.
As soon as the files are uploaded in the appropriate folder and the database is created successfully you can proceed with the actual installation. You need to enter the exact URL to the root folder of the application in your browser. If the script is placed in the public_html folder the URL will be www.yourdomain.com and if you have placed it in a subfolder you should access www.yourdomain.com/subfolder.
Accessing this link will lead you to the installation wizard.
On the initial screen you will be required to select the language for your website:
I’m running a small digital design studio and I’ve been using TMD for quite some time, at least few years now. However, I did had that ‘pleasure’ to try other companies out there (number of them). Even the most expensive ones or those who prise themselves for being the best. Yet, none came even close in terms of hardware specification, prices and after sale technical support. Truly remarkable service. If they say that this is fully managed hosting. It truly is. They are honest, fair and respectful. It’s pleasure to work with them and I wish every business around the world have such remarkable customer services as well as common sense. The quality of their support and true care for your business go far beyond the spec of your hosting service.
Unfortunately you will always have haters, and ever since the internet was invented it became worse. Rumors and lies as well as slandering can be posted almost anywhere and that can give a company a hard time to evolve, but in due time if the company has a solid product eventually they will proceed with confidence and dignity. So i will say this and excuse me TMDHosting, but those that enjoy spreading lies and hide behind the computer doing it have no dignity and balls. Let others do what they need to do. If you have an issue deal with them in a more private way. This company has evolved and i see it becoming a competitor. Keep up the good work!
I use the servers of Tmdhosting for many years and I found the staff extremely friendly, patient and competent in solving ordinary or complicated problems, night and day! I know other providers and would not let TMD for nothing in the world!!!! Thanks to all the staff, you are precious!!!!

First class hosting, highly recommended! Their SSD based servers are quicker than anything I have ever seen before! Their biggest advantage - fast and reliable support! They respond very quick and help a lot.

I want congratulate all people that make TMDHosting possible. It's the best hosting service that I ever saw. I just moved a site of a radio station from Sao Paulo to one of the servers od TMD, and the support is the best possible. They worked to solve the problems that I had with the transference during the night and the holidays, with a lot of attention and profissionalism. There is nothing like this here in Brazil. You guys are really the best. Special thank to: David Perkins Paul Miller Vince Bennett Jeremy Lewis Steven Greene Morgan Collins and all the people that really make this fantastic company.
