Upgrade from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9

It's been a busy year and Drupal 8 is fast approaching its end of life, so we've been making a start on the process of upgrading to Drupal 9.

The upgrade process is looking like it's quite mature, with lots of the kinks ironed out, but there are still quite a number of contributed modules needing work. As the deadline gets closer the gap should shrink even more.

Drupal promised that the transition from 8 to 9 would be a 'minor' update. It is when compared to the major upheaval of a Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 upgrade, but it's a bigger jump than from 8.0 to 8.1.

The most disappointing thing is that after all the effort of fixing errors and working around problems, the end result is a site that looks and functions exactly the same!

Well, exactly the same except it is now securely set up for the next 5 years.

If you have a Drupal 8 website and are looking to upgrade to Drupal 9 - now is the time to do it. Give us a call on 01985 840 637 - or contact us through our online form.
