I need to upgrade a drupal 6.20 site to drupal 7 using drush sup

Installed drush using apt-get install. Upgraded it to the last version using drush self-update command and downloded the site-upgrade extension

Put the aliases.drushrc.php file under /home/mhmd/.drush/ contains the following

$aliases['newnour'] = array (
'root' => '/var/www/newnour',
'uri' => 'localhost/newnour',

Navigate under the project path and typed drush sup newnour gahtering info finished and at the end Site alias not found: newnour. See example.drushrc.php.

whoever typing drus sa lists newnour @newnour @none @self default

So what is the problem now please help me

  • I don't understand the 2nd from last paragraph. Using alias drush commands should work like so: drush @alias command. Looks like your question has nothing to do with sup command of drush and it's all to do with how to use the aliases correctly in drush. – Beebee May 29 '13 at 8:21
  • yes you are right the question about alias now not the sup command – Mohammed Gomma May 29 '13 at 8:27
  • Try setting your uri to whatever is in the sites folder e.g. sites/newnour then uri would be newnour – digital May 29 '13 at 10:26
  • newnour is under /var/ww/newnour do u need me to put under the old site ? – Mohammed Gomma May 29 '13 at 11:14
  • I mean if your folder structure looks like /var/www/newnour/sites/default then your uri should be default. – digital May 30 '13 at 9:11
