This is the third part in a series of blog posts about how to use of migrate and migrate_d2d to migrate content and files from Drupal 6 to 7. In the third part will be about files.
This is the second part in a series of blog posts about migrate and migrate_d2d. I will in this post demonstrate how to migrate taxonomy terms from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
The normal way of performing a major upgrade in Drupal have traditionally been by running update.php, that fire off a lot of rather complex hook_update_N() tasks. They will try to upgrade configuration and content from one major version to another. Example Drupal 6 to 7.
Ever had a site not controlled by the features module or felt that using it, add to much administrative overhead? Or you simply want to learn how to use Drupal field API? This is for you.
In this example I will try to keep the amount of code to the very minimum. Putting too much features into a example have a tendency to put some people off with the amount of code it create. The example will not explain how you create new field types, but rather use one existing provided by Drupal core.
# Local dev. setup by using homebrew
Note:An quick, stort and easy starting point. Does not provide any background information outside the needed steps getting PHP, Apache and the database server running.
