If you are running a production site on Drupal 6 then you will probably have to start looking at upgrading the site by the end of this year.

With Drupal 8 in the works a lot of Drupal 6 sites are currently upgrading to Drupal 7. We get quite a few queries on Drupal upgrades and almost everybody asks for a fixed price estimate for the process. In theory Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade process is an automated process (except for the upgrade of theme and custom modules) and all you have to do is to take the site through a set of standard steps for the upgrade. However upgrades don't always work like that. Drupal Drupal 6 Drupal Upgrade Drupal 7 Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marker *

A lot of clients come to us asking for running Drupal updates on their sites. However almost everybody asks for a fixed price estimate for the process. There is however a challenge in this because updates would mostly run without problems but you might run into a problem or two once in a while. We have a standard and safe process of running Drupal updates but the safe practices followed in the process would take considerably longer time than blindly running updates on the live site.

Ecommerce used to be the preferred ecommerce solution for Drupal before Ubercart came into the picture. We recently worked on upgrading a Drupal 5 site with Ecommerce to Drupal 7 with Ubercart. The challenge with this upgrade was that the source data existed only in the D5 database and the corresponding code to programmatically access the ecommerce data was in D5 as well while the destination tables existed only in the D7 database with the corresponding code existing only in the D7 database. The solution we went with was to go for a full SQL query based migration to copy over the Ecommerce data from its tables to the Ubercart tables.

Upgrading a Drupal site refers to moving it’s database and files from one major version of Drupal to a later one, to take advantage of the newer features and bug fixes that might not be available for the older version. Upgrading a Drupal site is a pretty effective way to make sure that your Drupal site is currently up to date with all the latest security updates and bug fixes. Old versions of Drupal will naturally be unsupported with the arrival of the new releases. The Drupal community has currently stopped supporting the older versions of Drupal like version 4 and 5 and has moved to Drupal 7. However Drupal 6 is more widely supported. Have a look at the steps required to upgrade your Drupal site from an older version to      Drupal 6.      Web Development Drupal Drupal 6 Drupal 4 Drupal 5 Drupal Upgrade Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
