Quaker Database Project


We have been asked to create a home on Earlham's servers - using Drupal - for a large database which contains a history of Quaker meetings in North America.


So far, we have been working on getting Drupal installed on Amber, one of the web servers.

We have also been using the directions provided by Drupal in their INSTALL.txt
