Why Migrate From Drupal 7 To Drupal 10?

What is the benefit of Drupal?

Upgrading Drupal 7 to 10 is paramount for maintaining a secure, efficient, modern website. As technology evolves, so do the demands for improved security, performance, and features. Migrating to Drupal 10 ensures your site stays up-to-date with the latest advancements, providing a better experience for administrators and users. Here are key reasons why making the move is beneficial:

Enhanced Security

Drupal 10 offers more robust security features than Drupal 7, protecting your site from potential threats and vulnerabilities. However, as Drupal 7 reaches its end-of-life, it will no longer receive security updates, making your site more susceptible to attacks. Upgrading ensures you get regular security updates and patches.

Modern Features and Better Performance

Drupal 10 includes updated modules, themes, and improved performance features. This ensures faster load times, better media management, enhanced layout design options, and a more user-friendly experience for site administrators and visitors.

Extended Support

Drupal 7 will soon be deprecated, meaning it will no longer receive updates or support. Upgrading to Drupal 10 ensures your site remains supported with regular updates, patches, and access to a broader community of developers and resources.

Improved Integration and Scalability

Drupal 10 offers better integration capabilities with third-party services and platforms, allowing seamless connections with various tools. Its architecture is designed to scale efficiently, handling large-scale websites and growing traffic without compromising performance.

SIAM

SIAM Drupal 7 to Drupal 10 Migration

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is a key institution that promotes research and fosters communication among mathematicians and practitioners across various disciplines. To enhance its digital infrastructure and provide an improved user experience, SIAM embarked on a significant project: migrating their website from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10.

This move was essential to leverage the latest features, enhanced security, and improved performance that Drupal 10 offers. The migration process involved meticulous planning and execution to ensure a seamless transition, with a particular focus on preserving SIAM's extensive database of research, publications, and member information. Our team worked diligently to adapt custom modules, update content workflows, and implement new functionalities that align with SIAM's goals and user expectations.
Our commitment to SIAM extends beyond the migration. Inclind provides ongoing support to ensure the website operates smoothly and efficiently. This includes regular updates, security patches, and addressing any issues that arise. Our team is dedicated to providing SIAM with the technical assistance needed to maintain a robust and reliable online presence.
As part of our services, Inclind set up Google Search Console for SIAM. This tool is vital for monitoring and optimizing the website's presence in Google search results. By leveraging Google Search Console, we help SIAM track site performance, identify and fix issues, and improve their search visibility, ensuring that their valuable content reaches a wider audience.
Before the migration, Inclind conducted a thorough site audit for SIAM. This audit involved analyzing the existing website's structure, performance, and security. The insights gained from the audit were crucial in planning the migration strategy and ensuring that all potential issues were addressed. The audit helped us identify areas for improvement and set a solid foundation for the migration process.

Steps to Migrate from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10

A straightforward but proven process.

Migrating from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10 is a detailed process that requires careful planning and execution. Each step is crucial to ensuring a smooth transition and maintaining the integrity of your site's content and functionality. Below is a comprehensive guide to help you understand the migration process and what to expect at each stage.

Step 1: Backup Your Drupal 7 Site

Create a complete backup of your existing Drupal 7 site to prevent data loss during migration. This includes backing up your database, files, and configuration settings. Use reliable backup tools or services to ensure a secure and accessible copy of your site data.

Step 2: Audit Your Existing Site

Audit all the modules, themes, and custom code used in your Drupal 7 site to determine compatibility with Drupal 10. This involves cataloging all installed modules and noting any custom code or configurations. Check for available Drupal 10 versions of your essential modules and plan to replace or update those that are not compatible.

Step 3: Set Up a Development Environment

Create a development environment for Drupal 10 to ensure the migration does not affect your live site. This environment allows you to test the migration process and make adjustments without risking your live site's functionality. Use a local development setup or a staging server that mirrors your production environment.

Step 4: Upgrade Core and Contributed Modules

Update your site's core and contribute modules to their latest versions in Drupal 7 before starting the migration process. This helps minimize compatibility issues when moving to Drupal 10. Make sure all security patches and updates are applied to ensure a stable foundation for the migration.

Step 5: Migrate Content

Use the Drupal Migrate module to transfer content from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10. This includes nodes, users, taxonomies, and files. Configure the Migrate module to map your Drupal 7 content types and fields to the corresponding Drupal 10 structures. Test the migration on a small subset of content first to identify and resolve any issues before migrating the entire site.

Step 6: Rebuild Custom Code

Rewrite any custom code to be compatible with Drupal 10. This may include custom modules, themes, and integrations. Review your custom code for deprecated functions and update them to use the new APIs and best practices in Drupal 10. Consider refactoring code to take advantage of new features and improvements in Drupal 10.

Step 7: Migrate Themes and Design

Recreate your site's design in Drupal 10. If you're using a custom theme, you'll need to update it to be compatible with Drupal 10's theming system, which may involve significant changes. Alternatively, you can take this opportunity to refresh your site's design with a new theme that leverages Drupal 10's capabilities.

Step 8: Set Up Redirects

To ensure that your old URLs are redirected to the new ones after the migration, set up 301 redirects from your Drupal 7 URLs to the corresponding Drupal 10 URLs. This helps maintain your organic rankings and prevents users from encountering broken links. Use tools like the Redirect module to manage these redirects efficiently.

Step 9: Test Thoroughly and Launch the Site

Thoroughly test the migrated site in the development environment to ensure all content, functionality, and design elements work correctly. This includes checking for broken links, missing images, formatting issues, and verifying that all interactive elements function as expected. Perform user acceptance testing (UAT) with stakeholders to ensure the site meets their expectations.

Once testing is complete and all issues are resolved, launch the Drupal 10 site by updating your DNS settings and making it live. Plan the launch during a low-traffic period to minimize user impact and be prepared to address any immediate issues that arise post-launch.

Step 10: Monitor and Optimize

After the site is live, continuously monitor its performance and make necessary optimizations to ensure it runs smoothly. Use analytics and monitoring tools to track site performance, identify potential issues, and gather user feedback. Address any bugs or performance bottlenecks promptly to maintain a high-quality user experience.
