After using Drupal for many years, I’ve decided to switch to WordPress as my Content Management System. My hosting company, MacHighway, uses cPanel to manage user sites, and it provides a default version of PHP and its associated modules, which I don’t have access to change. It seems that recently, Drupal has changed their system requirements to require additional PHP modules, which are not installed, so I have not been able to upgrade to the most recent releases. I found the FG Drupal to WordPress plug-in, which can migrate the content from Drupal sites which work quite well, so I’ve migrated this site to WordPress. I’ve done a few updates already, but I’ll try to review each of the pages to make sure that the graphics are there, etc.
OK, I haven’t posted much for a while, so I thought that I should provide some updates. I have resolved the previous upgrade issues that I had with Drupal 8, and also had MacHighway move me to a CPanel server that was running PHP7, which seemed to have helped.
I’ve been offline for a little over a week, after a botched Century Link DSL upgrade at home. I’ve moved to a GoDaddy web hosting plan, and have gotten all of my websites back up and running last night. I still have some fine-tuning to do, but the basic content is back up now.
