I was told to integrate Views 3 with Drupal 7 following this tutorial:


However, I do not have this:

You should see a page with output that begins with: "$databases['default']['default']['prefix']= array("

So I'd like to know if that tutorial doesn't apply anymore or what I need to do to get that PHP config to show.

This is a fresh installation so I'm using latest versions of Drupal and CiviCRM



If you don't see that screen in Karin's answer, here are some reasons why you might not (source):

  • You aren't using Drupal at all! Views and its integration won't work on your site at all then πŸ™‚
  • You have CiviCRM and Drupal in the same database. With a shared DB, no aliasing is required in settings.php, it'll work out of the box.
  • You don't have Views enabled in Drupal yet. The screen won't show up until Views is enabled.

  • Make a view that shows some data πŸ˜€ – Chris Burgess Apr 23 '17 at 21:24

Navigate to CiviCRM -> Administer -> System Settings -> CMS Database Integration:

Copy all of that... into the Drupal settings.php file for your site!
