How to download the development snapshot / dev version of a Drupal module/theme/core for a specific date

There are often times when you need to download the development snapshot / dev version of a Drupal module/theme/core for a specific date. One common case is when you want to compare the existing version of the module code on your site with the drupal.org version of the same to check for code hacks, as you prepare to update / upgrade the Drupal module.

Here is a method to get that particular date's development snapshot:

[PATCH] How to set workflow comment during automated stated transition with Workflow Rules Set State Action on a Drupal 7 site

The Workflow module in Drupal, as part of its Rules module integration, allows you various rules based actions, of which one commonly used one is the action to change the workflow state from state to another. But that one doesn't have an option to set the comment for that state change, which can be quite useful when you see the Workflow History of a node.

I have created a patch for the latest dev version (7.x-1.0+20-dev) of the Workflow module to help you with that:

[SOLVED] Drupal - How to fix PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() on Ubuntu linux

One of the Drupal sites that we got to work with had this issue. The original server that the site was hosted on did not have any issue. But the issue showed up when it was transferred over to a new server.

This usually happens when you are missing the php5-curl library.

On Ubuntu, just run the following commands in your terminal to fix this:

sudo apt-get install php5-curl
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

If not on Ubuntu, check for the correct alternative to 'apt-get' for your distribution.

[SOLVED] Error when installing modules in Drupal 7 from admin/modules/install - Exception: Invalid checksum for file...calculated, 0 expected in Archive_Tar...line 635 of modules/system/system.tar.inc

Drupal 7 provides a feature that allows you to install a new module via the Drupal interface itself, without entering your hosting server's cPanel/alternative File Manager to upload files.

That works like a charm for most hosting servers and makes installing modules/themes a breeze on Drupal.

For some others, trying to install modules that way (from admin/modules/install) might just bring up something that looks like the following:
Exception: Invalid checksum for file ... calculated, 0 expected in Archive_Tar->_error() (line 635 of .../my-site.com/modules/system/system.tar.inc).

Here's how to fix this:
