Congratulations on your decision to migrate to Drupal 9. This is going to be one of the best decisions you’ve made as a technology leader. As you’d be aware, since the release of Drupal 8 in 2015, Drupal has been considered a leader in the object-oriented, enterprise-class, modern web content management framework. Now that Drupal 9 is also released in June 2020, the Drupal community has kept its word and has proven that the version upgrade to the new version is a walk in the park.

As a user and developer, you would have surely heard about Drupal, an open source Content Management system (CMS) that has great developer network and is free and most secure too. All said and done, if you decide to make the transition from your existing CMS to Drupal, you would surely want to understand the steps to be taken, the cost involved etc. before you take the plunge.

After the core update, the site will definitely be malfunctioning as expected, as long as it isn't WSOD, you're fine! Ignore it and move forward with the migration process. If you were using a custom theme, then in all probability your site will appear broken because your theme was designed for Drupal 6 and the core is now Drupal 7. If you were using custom or contrib modules to display content or blocks the same would happen because the modules are disabled and still Drupal 6.

Migrating or upgrading a Drupal website is a relatively easy process. But to any change there is a certain risk associated with it, more so in this case depending on the variability of content and complexity of theme. The least troublesome to migrate would be a site with little to no custom code or modules. But this wasn't the case for zyxware.com. This article outlines the migration process and links will be provided to detailed descriptions from all of these outlines.

This article is prepared with the experience of migration on zyxware.com and I have tried my best to generalize it to migrate any Drupal 6 website to Drupal 7. The issues mentioned in these articles, although common in sites that have been migrated, need not be present in yours. Please learn from these articles and keep these articles as a safe practice, not as a guide to migration. Migration is different for every website!

This step may seem irrelevant, but is absolutely necessary as the minor versions may have database changes which maybe reflected in major upgrade. (Minor upgrade example : 6.11 to 6.19 and major upgrade example : 6.19 to 7.34). If you are using git, make sure to checkout a new branch before updating code so that the code is backed up and take a dump of the local database you are working on.
