In this screencast we are going to start from the very beginning and create our own EC2 cloud hosted Drupal installation. This will allow us to have full control of our Linux server and Drupal installation. We will walk through the process of setting up an Amazon EC2 instance, download and install Apache2, MySQL, PHP5, and phpmyadmin. Using these tools, we can create a Drupal database and host a Drupal website. Finally, we will download and install Drupal to our web server, create a Drupal database, configure the Apache site directory and install our Drupal website. At the end of the screencast we will have a running server and working Drupal website.

Drupal is an awesome, flexible, and extensive framework. One of the great things about Drupal is the mass availability of modules. One of the difficult parts of using Drupal is finding the modules you need to get started. Drupal, out of the box, comes with very few modules. The list below is a starting list of Drupal modules I think all Drupal installations should have. I'll list the names and details about what the modules do. If you want to download them, just do a Google search for the module name and "Drupal". Are there additional modules you would suggest? If so, list them in the comments!
