Moving from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7

In 2014 the university upgraded our website software from Drupal 6.0 to Drupal 7.0.

The new version of Drupal is more powerful and more intuitive for maintenance by content editors. All departments and units are encouraged to develop a plan for moving their website(s) from Drupal 6 to 7.

All support for Drupal 6 will eventually be eliminated.

Important note:
There is no automatic way to switch a website from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
A brand new website must be created and any content from the old Drupal 6 site must be transferred manually.
Content includes: text, images, video and uploaded documents.

To move from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 follow the New Site Process.

When you have completed the New Site Process any old Drupal 6 sites will be removed from the university system and archived.
