This Wrox Blox shows you how to perform a complete upgrade from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 for a simple but non-trivial Drupal site involving the Drupal core itself, and several indispensable modules. The author gives step-by-step instructions for carrying out this upgrade, outlining the best practices to be followed. These include the recommendation of using a test site in conjunction with a subversion repository for version control and deployment to production. He also provides sources for gaining insight into any pitfalls, and other detailed information that might be necessary to complete the upgrade. Readers will find a thoroughly realistic approach here, featuring real-world use of both the views and og modules, for example, and the presentation of new tools, such as the Devel module, including its Firebug-like theming inspection facilities. This Wrox Blox will help developers squarely face all of the issues involved with upgrading from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6.
