Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 Migration
Drupal 8 is. in many ways, a completely different content management system from its predecessors. Since many features were re-written from the ground up, direct compatibility from older versions of Drupal (especially 6) required extensive research and testing to ensure compatability and content migration would be successful every step of the way.
A detailed audit of the underlying modules, custom code, custom content and everything in between was first performed. The first thing that was migrated was the configuration and settings within D6. This includes site settings, SEO keywords, permissions, users and many other elements of the core Drupal installation.
Next we moved to migrating the content. This would include nodes, taxonomy terms, entities and views were migrated to Drupal 8. Many passes were needed in order to ensure the transition of all the elements was smooth and there weren’t any unforeseen problems.
