Search statistics are important when forming your content strategy. By installing the MyCludo module for Drupal, you are able to keep everything in one place, merging the two platforms.
This article includes the options there are for installing MyCludo module on Drupal (7 and 8).
Download the Cludo Module
The first step before installing/enabling the MyCludo module on Drupal is to download the required files of the module to the server.
There are two ways to do this:
- Using Composer to download the module
- Manually download the module.
Using Composer to download the module
This method will only be used if you are using Composer; it must be installed on the server.
Downloading the Cludo module is very simple using Composer; just enter the following command at the root of your site:
composer require drupal/cludo
This command will automatically download the module (and required dependencies) to the server.
Once the command finishes, the module will be available on your server.
Manual download of the module
Steps to perform the manual download of the module:
- On the Cludo project page on drupal.org, scroll to the Downloads section at the bottom of the page.
- Click tar.gz to download the file to your computer
- If you are adding the new module, create a subdirectory in your top-level modules (if it doesn't already exist).
Typically, you'd make a contrib subdirectory for contributed modules that are downloaded from Drupal.org, and a custom subdirectory for modules that they created. Your modules directory might look like this:
- Upload the .tar.gz file to your site. Place it in the appropriate subdirectory of modules (/modules/contrib/).
- Extract the files from the .tar.gz archive making a subdirectory in the same location as the archive file. If you do not have terminal access, or your hosting server is not running Linux, your hosting control panel’s file manager should provide a way to extract the files. If you have terminal access to your hosting server (running Linux) and you are using a tar.gz file, you can use a command like:
tar -xzf cludo-8.x-1.0.tar.gz
- Delete the compressed file from the server (unless your unpacking method already deleted it)
- The module is now available on your server
Install the Cludo module
Once the module is downloaded (and available) on the server, MyCludo module can be installed in two different ways:
- Using the administrative interface
- Using Drush
Using the administrative interface
You can use the administrative interface to install the MyCludo module, doing the following steps:
- Go to the Manage administrative men and navigate to Extend (admin/modules).
- Locate the Cludo module or just write “Cludo” to locate the module.
- Mark the checkbox and click the "Install" button
- Once the process finishes, MyCludo is available on your site:
The installation of the module using Drush is very simple: enter the following command at the root of your site:
drush en cludo
