Drupal has made version 9.0.1 available. This website is running for example on Drupal 9.0.1. Clearly: the software is ready for migrating Drupal 8 websites. This is very important for two reasons:
In 2022, support for Drupal 7 will stop. In principle, Drupal only supports one previous version (Drupal 8), but will make an exception for the time being given the challenges when moving from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9. Customers, who currently have a website running in Drupal 7, are therefore strongly recommended to take action and contact us for an analysis.
For customers who currently run a Drupal 8 website, we can perform an analysis as well: We will then determine whether the migration from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 is easy or not. In general, if there is not too much complexity, and if the website has been built by a professional Drupal developer, then a smooth migration will be possible. This is specially true if the website is running on Drupal version 8.9 although there is always a need for changes in the code and on the server. For example, it is often required to upgrade the PHP and Drush versions prior to the migration.
Contact our office for a quick analysis of your website. We can then immediately give you an advice on the best strategy for your organisation.
