Drupal Archive Format?

I would like to import a Drupal site into Dev Cloud. Can someone point me to documentation on the Drupal Archive Format that is used for this purpose?

Richard,

To import a site you point it to a directory on your computer, not an actual archive. The database is uploaded and can be compressed or not.

Hope that helps,

I've been unable to import my site successfully. The install(import) page specifically states "Replace the current contents of one of your site's environments with another Drupal site in Drupal Site Archive format. Create a Drupal site archive of your existing site hosted elsewhere using the Drush archive-dump command." making it seem that you have to use the drush archive-dump format. Mine doesn't work and doesn't follow the format discussed here - http://groups.drupal.org/site-archive-format which states you need a /files folder and a sql dump in the root of your archived file.

Still lost on this one, the other route from what I can tell is to add all my local files to the trunk and then commit them.

Apologies, Scott. I misread and thought you had said Dev Desktop.

Looking into this-- I know there have been previous issues with this. You can also certainly add your site to trunk directly and commit it in the meantime.

Isit actually possible to import drupal archive to the fresh new Dev Desktop. I was thinking to do some manipulation at my writepapersformoney.net. So just curious to know.
