acquia cloud not a git repository ( or any of the parent directories ): git failed

acquia cloud not a git repository ( or any of the parent directories ): .git git failed

I was getting this issue when trying to delete my site from the Acquia Dev Desktop 2 console.  The problem was that rather that trying to delete the folder I needed to delete using the console.  By using the '-' sign in the bottom left hand corner.  Once you do this then you have the option to Pull from Cloud again.

How to make changes in Drupals TB Mega Menu Module

Rather than hacking over CSS here's how to make changes in Drupals TB Mega Menu Module.

the files can be found at sites/all/modules/contrib/tb_megamenu/css/styles/black.css

make a new file here like

then in   /sites/all/modules/contrib/tb_megamenu/ 


'grey' => t('Grey'), 


'green' => t('Green'), 


    drupal_get_path('module', 'tb_megamenu') . '/css/styles/grey.css',


drupal_get_path('module', 'tb_megamenu') . '/css/styles/green.css', 

in admin visit  structure -> tb mega menu  ->  ( your menu ) -> configure. 

you can now choose Grey

Drupal Migrate Module error on activating Migrate UI

PDOException: SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table '*.migrate_group' doesn't exist: SELECT AS name, mg.title AS title, mg.arguments AS arguments FROM {migrate_group} mg; Array ( ) in migrate_ui_migrate_dashboard() (line 29of *sites/all/modules/contrib/migrate/migrate_ui/

the fix here was to add the following table to mysql 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `migrate_group` (
  `name` varchar(255) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Unique machine name for a migration group',
  `title` varchar(255) NOT NULL COMMENT 'Display name for a migration group',
  `arguments` blob NOT NULL COMMENT 'A serialized array of arguments to the migration group',
  PRIMARY KEY (`name`)
