107. What is a sub theme in Drupal ?

Sub-themes are just like any other theme, with one difference: They inherit the parent theme's resources. There are no limits on the chaining capabilities connecting sub-themes to their parents. A sub-theme can be a child of another sub-theme, and it can be branched and organized however you see fit. This is what gives sub-themes great potential.

106. What is template.php in drupal ?

If you want to override a theme function not included in the basic list (block, box, comment, node, page), you need to tell PHPTemplate about it.
To do this, you need to create a template.php file in your theme's directory. This file must start with a PHP opening tag but the close tag is not needed and it is recommended that you omit it. Also included in the file are stubs for the theme overrides. These stubs instruct the engine what template file to use and which variables to pass to it.

Drupal Job Interview Questions and Answers ( a set of 50 questions, q52-q101)

101. What hardware does run on?

People often wonder what kind of hardware runs on. Throughout the project history this has been a tough question. For a while it was a server in a random office building. That server eventually died and required a fund-raising effort to replace (the funds were raised in 24 hours!).
The critical infrastructure is all configured to share the load and be redundant. For example, db1 and db2 are configured to be master-slave most of the time to provide for better performance and allow the slave to be promoted to master if the master fails.
