Old posts from the Dupal site have finally been added

 



 

 

I’ve finally added the old material from the previous incarnation of the site. It’s one of those tasks you hate doing, as it’s fraught with opportunity for error and really messing up the site. I was looking at a post somewhere else on migrating a Drupal 6 site to WordPress 2 and thought there was a way to do the work, install a fairly old WordPress on a different machine, grab the old backup I made before the migration and upgrade that to Drupal 6 and follow the procedure and then upgrade the WordPress install. It worked, or at least as well as could be expected. I did lose the authors of a couple of posts, and I need to go back and see if they re-registered with the site so I can change them back. At present all old posts are authored by ocuug.

If anyone is interested in the process of doing something like this, the instructions I followed are at the Social CMS Buzz site.

Of course, now that I’ve done this site, I have a different site to address that has info from multiple CMS engines to import. At the very least, it will make an interesting discussion topic for a future meeting. I also noticed, far too late to stop the flood, that the automated announce a post on twitter was enabled when I imported the old data and as a result, a large series of tweets went out. Yet another item to add to the how to migrate items checklist. At least I don’t have that turned on yet at the other site.
