File drupal7-README.SUSE of Package drupal7

Initially upon install, Drupal requires additional installation steps:

1. DB setup

To begin with, install php-mysql or php-pgsql, depending on which db backend
you intend to use.

Then, follow the installation instructions in INSTALL.*.txt to complete the 
setup of and connection of Drupal to the required database, including 
  chown wwwrun:www /etc/drupal7/default/settings.php
uncommenting the appropriate line in 
and restarting apache2.

Once these steps have been completed, you should be ready to connect to 
to complete the initial setup.

2. Enable remote access

Drupal ships with all non-localhost access disabled.  Comment and uncomment lines in 
as appropriate, and restart apache2.

Regarding the file layout:
Pay careful attention to the placement of the directories as established by
the package.  If you need to relocate files due to size, for custom modules
not included in openSUSE, or for large custom site data, be careful to do so
without altering any of the symlinks owned by the package.  Most configurations
should not run into problems, but if any symlinks are changed, they will be
re-written when the package is upgraded, which could break the site until
you re-change the symlink.

3. SSL/TLS usage.
CVE-2008-3661 relates to the security of session cookies and SSL/TLS.

To help mitigate this, uncomment the following line in 
#php_flag session.cookie_secure on
