Why Migrate From Drupal 7?

Drupal 7 is set to retire in January 2025. That date is approaching faster than you may think. The end of life for Drupal 7 is going to leave a trail of websites in its wake. 

“End of life” signals the halt of updates, especially those life-saving security patches that keep threats at bay. If you fail to take action your website will become a sitting duck, and is at risk of becoming open to an array of vulnerabilities.

But it’s not just a matter of keeping your site protected from hackers who are already plotting the Drupal 7 end of life and waiting for an opportunity to breach out-of-date Drupal 7 websites.

PHP versions 5 and 7, commonly backing Drupal 7 sites, have already crossed their end-of-life. Without regular updates or a developer's vigilant eye, many sites could already be exposed, walking on thin ice.

Migrating to Drupal 9 or 10 goes beyond avoiding the doom and gloom. This is a transformative upgrade that will unlock a whole new world of possibilities for your website. 

From user-friendly drag-and-drop layout builders to dynamic block types, from stunning themes to seamless integrations with the latest JavaScript frameworks, it's an all-in-one package. 

And the features that made it special like intuitive UI, content types, and diverse views are all there, but enhanced. 

There is no question that you need to migrate to Drupal 9 or 10. The only question is, who can you count on as a trustworthy Drupal migration service provider? You can rest assured you’re in good hands here at Debug Academy.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Drupal Migration Services

Still not sure we’re the right provider for you - or wondering about Drupal migration in general? We’ve addressed some of the most commonly asked questions about our Drupal migration services below.

Which Version of Drupal Should I Migrate to?

You don't need to take a step-by-step upgrade from 7 to 8, then 9, and finally 10. Most projects can directly leap from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10, giving you immediate access to all its advanced features and capabilities. 

However, based on the intricacies and specific requirements of your site, choosing between Drupal 9 or 10 might be apt. This is something we can discuss together when you get in touch with us.

Will I Have to Migrate Again in the Future?

Migration might sound like a recurring nightmare, but with modern Drupal, it’s more of a one-time affair. The journey from Drupal 8 onwards is more of an “update” than a “migration” thanks to the platform’s rewrite.

It's not just lighter on your pocket but also a more streamlined process. And here's the best part: Drupal is working on automating these updates, hopefully making future transitions almost effortless.

Can I Do a Like-for-Like Migration?

Absolutely! If you've grown fond of your Drupal 7 website's structure and appearance, a like-for-like migration is entirely feasible. 

But, here’s a thought: migration presents a golden opportunity for reinvention. With all you've learned from your Drupal 7 site, why not leverage this migration to refine, optimize, and elevate your new site to even greater heights? 

Debug Academy can help you strike a balance between familiarity and innovation, ensuring your website not just migrates, but evolves.

Can I migrate from Drupal 7 myself?

If what you really want is a partner to assist with your Drupal 7 migration, look no further.

We can help in various ways:

Audit your Drupal 7 site to recommend a path forward

Did you know there are multiple paths forward from Drupal 7?

  • Drupal 9, 10, 11
  • Backdrop
  • Convert to a Static Site
  • Use ReactJS
  • Build a Decoupled Drupal site

Each option has its own pros and cons, and you do technically have the option of "doing nothing" -- but that needs to be appropriately evaluated as well.

We'll help you navigate this question and come to an answer you can feel confident with.
