Drupal Database


Drupal uses a lightweight database abstraction layer between the code and the database.

Database Abstraction Layer

Drupal determines the type of database to connect to by inspecting the $db_url variable inside settings.php.

Connecting to the Database

Drupal connects to the database as part of its normal bootstrap process.
