Upgrading from Drupal 6 to 7

Just upgraded my web site from Drupal 6 to 7. All I had to do was to download the latest release from drupal.org and follow the instructions from UPGRADE.txt. I admit this part was easier than expected.

But if you want to try a different approach, check out the following project:

It uses a patch system to update from all minor versions to the latest version of Drupal. Download the right patch file for your version, than run the following commands:

patch -p1 --dry-run < PATCHFILE
patch -p1 < PATCHFILE


Before you continue reading, we need to define the difference between upgrading and updating:

Upgrading refers to moving from one major release to another, e.g. you are moving from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
Updating typically refers to bringing your site up to the latest minor version of Drupal, e.g. such as updating from Drupal 6.12 to Drupal 6.14.

See you
