Updating drupal 5

08 Sep

What it boils down to, is that if you are risk averse, and are prepared to invest, the safe option is for you to upgrade your site to Drupal 7 as soon as you can.For those of you that are more gung-ho, you could sweat your existing Drupal 6 platform for a while longer, riding the risk of being on an unsupported release, and hang on long enough until Drupal 8 is considered robust enough before going ahead with the upgrade.To patch your Drupal installation follow up to and including while running the patch dry run (second command above) immediately interrupt patching and upgrade following the steps explained in I don't guarantee the proper function of the patch files on Drupal installations other than my own. Because im getting some errors and, since before it went smooth all the times, im wondering if maybe you upload a wrong file (i do it all the time ;) ).MD5 (drupal-7.0-to-7.54.patch) =

linux box. Thanks again This is *the* recommended way of upgrading Drupal! Dry run: patch -p1 --dry-run can't find file to patch at input line 2288 Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?stability of platform, limited set of available modules etc.).If a time factor could be applied to the risk graph, then the risk of moving to Drupal 8 would obviously degrade as time passes by, and Drupal 8 matures.With the imminent release of a Drupal 8 Release Candidate, which could potentially be announced as soon as the end of September at Drupalcon Barcelona, the clock has just started ticking a lot louder for those sites still on Drupal 6 with the looming support transition policy about to kick in: Drupal 6 core and modules will transition to unsupported status three months after Drupal 8 is released."Unsupported status" means the community will not be providing support or patches in the same way we do now.

For anyone reading this who is not familiar with Drush, it is a command line tool used to manage a Drupal installation and run all kinds of Drupal commands.Such as: run cron, clear caches, make backups, install modules etc.If you do Drupal development and are not using Drush, you really should.- If a similar timeline is followed, as Drupal 7 had from Release Candidate through to Full Release, then this realistically means that Drupal 6 (and Pressflow 6) will be lucky to be considered supported by the time that we are shaking off our New Year's hangovers.Not an ideal situation for Drupal 6 site owners to find themselves in.
