I just started the process of preparing my Drupal 6 (!) site for migrating to Drupal 9. One of the first steps of my migration process was to figure out where to host my Drupal 9 site. Right now kristen.org is on Pantheon. Yes, Pantheon supports Drupal 6! Maybe they don't want me to advertise that though. :)

In this post, I'll discuss my initial impressions of surveying some of the biggest Drupal managed hosting companies. If your favorite hosting provider isn't covered here, let me know and I might do a follow up post.

How to setup a Drupal LAMP development environment on Linux (Ubuntu)

Here are my notes for setting up a brand new Linux/Ubuntu server for Drupal development. If you are cool with the command line, then you might find this handy.

1. Install Apache/MySQL/PHP via tasksel

Reference: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP

> sudo apt-get update
> sudo apt-get install tasksel
> sudo tasksel install lamp-server

You will be asked to provide a mysql root password.
