This document outlines the installation of Drupal version 6.13 on Windows Server 2003 using wampserver 2.0g.

It is important to note that this version of Drupal is not supported on php 5.3. As of the time of this writing the latest version of wampserver ships with PHP 5.3.

In this build we will use wampserver 2.0g, which was downloaded from http://download.cnet.com/WampServer/3000-2196_4-10797035.html .

WAMP Installation

Double click on wampserver installer. Press OK

Win2k3-2009-08-08-19-03-38

Press Next

Select the exe file of your browser. In this case explorer.exe. Press OK

Email functionality is an important feature of Drupal. Unfortunatelly, wampserver does not come with a mail server. In order to utilize email, you will need to specify an smtp server. This may be a mail server on your network, or one provided by your ISP. This can be edited later in the php.ini file.
