Migrations costs for D7 EOL

March 15, 2022

While the Drupal security team has announced they are pushing back Drupal 7 EOL until November 1, 2023, that will come sooner than we think. This is not the time to be building new sites or new features on existing Drupal 7 sites. We can all use this extra time to thoughtfully migrate our sites into a CMS that will be supported long term.

So what does it take to migrate your site from Drupal 7 to a supported CMS on budget and on schedule? The first question is always: how much is this going to cost?

Here are some links to hosting services that we provide to our customers

Drupal 7 End-of-Life date will be re-evaluated annually

February 23, 2022

Today announcement came out:

Therefore, we are announcing that moving forward, the scheduled Drupal 7 End-of-Life date will be re-evaluated annually. As of today, we are extending the end-of-life by one year to November 1, 2023.

Shows respect for a huge community that cannot afford to move to D9.   

More than a decade after its first release, Drupal 7 is still widely used across the web. It can be found powering civic engagement in government installations; managing vast amounts of content for faculty, students, and staff in educational institutions; and providing the digital backbone for many businesses and non-profit organizations. Drupal 9 is well-maintained, secure, stable, and feature-rich, but many organizations still rely on Drupal 7.

The teams that built and still maintain these legacy Drupal installations, and the end users they serve, are important constituents of the Drupal community. Although these users should still plan their upgrade to a newer version of Drupal, if they are unable to upgrade before the currently announced end-of-life, it would not be responsible of us to leave them vulnerable.

Thank you, Drupal Association, for keeping community a priority.
