How To Migrate A Drupal Website To Its Latest Version?0
With 200 new features, essential core modules, and mobile-ready design, Drupal 8 is all set to take the arena of CMSs by storm. Moreover, with as much as 34 Drupal 7 modules being a part of the new version’s core, the latter offers better core functionalities. If you are considering migrating your Drupal 6 or 7 website to the new version, then you must know about the following migration steps:
1. Prepare The Source Site: Migration from Drupal v6/v7 to Drupal v8 is performed by migrating the content of the source site (ie website running on version 6 or 7) to that of the Drupal v8 site. For this you must first prepare the source site. This involves updating the version of the source site to that of the latest version. That is, if your website is running on version 6.33 and the current version is 6.38, then you must update it to the current version before proceeding. Moreover, it is advisable that the migration is not performed on a live site, and thus, create a back-up of your source site.
