Migration Drupal 6 to Drupal 8.

My Drupal 8 site is located at /domains/example.com/public_html/drupal8site

Step 1: Install Drush

Step 2: Browse my drupal site cd /domains/example.com/public_html/drupal8site

Step 3: Use drush command drush migrate-upgrade --legacy-db-url=mysql://user:pass@ --legacy-root=http://example.com

If I using Drush migrate command above, do I still need to download the Migrate Upgrade module? If yes, where should the module file located?

No. You don't. In Drupal 8.1.3 This module is part of the core.

To have the full list of drush upgrade commands you would need Migrate tools module though.

See here for more details.

  • is this command drush pm-update drupal to run the core module? I have 2 site, one is Drupal 6 and another is Drupal 8. Is running drush pm-update drupal will migrate Drupal 6 content to Drupal 8?

  • I just know what I wrote. To migrate I used the migrate-UI module.

  • Make sure you are using drupal 8.1.3, in which the Migrate module is in core.

  • Yes, I am using drupal 8.1.3. I want to use drush to run example.com/upgrade to do the migration. Is drush command drush pm-update drupal correct?

  • As I told you I didn't use drush to do my migrate upgrade so I don't know. Its a different question what is the correct command to use...
