When I last went to update the URL redirect module from 8.x-1.4 to its latest version I saw this note:
After 8.x-1.4 version URL Redirect changed as config entity. If you are using before 8.x-1.4 version, it's strongly recommended to not upgrade module as it deletes all existing redirects in your system.
Since I didn't want to lose all my redirects, I just left the module as it was. Unfortunately, as of yesterday, v8.x-1.4 is no longer supported.
What is the best fix for updating this module?
Is it just a matter of updating to v8.x-2.3 and redoing the redirects (fortunately I do not have a lot of redirects) or is there an easier way of doing it?
