I'm trying to add content to my Drupal 8 from the PHPMYADMIN.
You may be wondering Why this way? The fact is that I have a web in Drupal 6 and I tried a lot to migrate using the tools Drupal has, without success.
I'm not so good at programming, and the time is passing, so I decided to try the manual approach.
I created an article and inspected the database and saw what tables where altered to discover which tables where affected when I create an article.
Then I proceeded to manually create them.
The involved tables where:
I noticed that "menu_tree" and "cache_entity" are altered when creating an article, but I do not know how to manually insert data there because they have blob data.
After that, I re-built the cache, but the content I created wouldn't show.
I wonder if there are some tables I'm missing, or if with this method I won't be able to achieve what I'm trying to accomplish.
If I have to choose between spending time in trying to learn something hard for me (something I don't know if will be or not 100% a success) and manually creating the 1500 articles with the Drupal 8 UI, then I would stick with the second option, because manually creating content is 100% secure and won't consume my desire to live the way the alternatives I'm trying with no effort are doing.
But there may be something. to automatize the process at least a bit. Is there?
What should I do?
I wonder if investigating the import.php as some kind of method to which I can pass and array of info and achieve what I'm trying to do!
Ps: I have already tried with the Migrate, Migrate Plus, etc with no result.
