Hi everyone!

I'm completely new to drupal and

I'm following the videos instruction.

For the author's installation guide, after installation is finished. The site http://olivier-27c7f63/ automatically appeared and after clicking on the link named "Access Bitnami Drupal Stack", this leads to http://olivier-27c7f63/drupal. This is the drupal site. You can watch this video to be sure
* 5:30 - How to install Drupal like a desktop application in Windows

Then from the video
* 4:44 - How to map a mockup to existing Drupal elements I saw in the address bar of author's web browser:

I didn't see any instruction for the change of url of the drupal site.

Could anybody show me the point here!

Any help would be appreciated!

P/S: I've tried some modifications in settings.php and .htaccess but no luck!

Hi there,

This is one thing I don't go into in the videos, but will cover in future videos. For now, you should be able to follow the videos just fine by substituting the with your own URL and folder.

The way to do this requires a combination of specific changes to the HOSTS file and the Apache config file. The tricky parts are making sure you're making the correct modifications and that you're using the right files. But, like I said, following along using your own URL should work just fine.

Just let me know if you run into any issues with this.
