We are not focussed on a running an upgrde here, instead we are going to create a clean Drupal7 website and import (or migrate) the contect into it.

#2 – Setup a Drupal 7 installation for a Drupal6 upgrade

So, we have the original Drupal6 website now running in a clean state, with old crap purged and unnecessary modules uninstalled and deleted. You mileage may vary but my websites look something like this:

and the new install of Drupal 7 — I set this up in a subdomain on the new server. It uses it’s own database, is seperated into a drupal7.drumstheword.com subdomain and is just good old plain vanilla Drupal 7:

So, before we do anything else lets make sure the Drupal7 instance has the essential modules installed. In my case this will be ubercart, migrate and the cool looking and very sexy migrate Drupal-to-Druapl module https://www.drupal.org/project/migrate_d2d

So, basically we are now ready to suck some data from the old website and blow it in to the new website.

It’s a suck and blow world baby.
