Re: Drupal under woody/stable
I have drupal running on a woody based server and also on unstable box.
I don't think I had to upgrade anything else really to get it working on
the stable box although I have upgraded some stuff on it to get other
stuff working so I can't be to sure on that. I did have a bit of an
issue with the deb packages when I went to upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 but
was able to get around that although it was a bit more work than it
should be. I did switch to running drupal from the upstream tarball
after that in /var/www/ as it is really easy to set up in that way
anyway and let me minimise the pain in upgrading. It is a great CMS
though. I have documented what I did and you can read it at

Does anyone have any experience here as to what the best method is,
given that it's not actually in stable?
Is an "apt-get source drupal" best, or does it need to pull in a load of
build-depends? I know it's PHP, but I'm not sure if it needs any
extra build-time packages.
Or should I just get the upstream tarball and stick it in /var/www?
Ability to respond quickly to vulnerabilities is a high priority, so I'd
prefer not to upgrade to testing on the public server I'm targeting
Ideas, clues, LARTs onlist, please.
