Going out to find a place to put your web site can be a truly daunting task.…That's because pretty much any competent system administrator can set up a…web hosting company.…So the selection is extremely broad.…This video talks about what makes a good web host for Drupal sites and how…to avoid common traps.…First, here are the quick details for those of you who are already web geeks.…You can find the complete list of requirements by going to…drupal.org/requirements.…But in brief, here they are.…You'll need at least 15 megabytes of disk space.…
Now that's for the program only.…Any files that you have such as downloadable files or graphics are going to add…to that requirement.…You'll need atleast 32 megabytes of memory dedicated to PHP.…You'll need Apache 1.3 or better, or Microsoft IIS as your web server.…You'll need PHP 5.2.5 and MySQL 5.0.15, and again, you can use later versions if you like.…If you're running Drupal 6 or an earlier version of Drupal, then you may have…different requirements, and again, take a look at that on drupal.org.…
