I'm using Drupal 7.10 which is an outdated version. Is it safe to just upgrade to the latest version or should I upgrade version by version from 7.11 until the latest version 7.21?

  • If you have drush installed, you can simply do drush up drupal and your update is done! Don't forget to run the database updates after you do this.

You can upgrade directly to the new version as it contains all the previous changes as well. But don't forget to follow the backup instructions...


just go to your command prompt , switch to your site folder and use the command "drush pm-update drupal" this ll help you out ..:) in an easy way..

happy coading :)

  • Thank you for the advise. The drush tool is helpful indeed. Apr 8, 2013 at 15:50
