Drupal 7 is still widely used by many, but migrating to a newer version is essential with the upcoming end of official support.

 

Migrating from Drupal 7 to 10 requires careful planning and execution, but it is a necessary step to maintain the security and functionality of your site. Delaying this migration could expose your site to unpatched vulnerabilities and compatibility issues.

Upgrade Drupal 8 to 10

Drupal 8 introduced many new features and improvements, but with its end of life on November 17, 2021, upgrading to version 10 becomes essential.

 

Upgrading from Drupal 8 to 10 allows you to leverage Drupal’s latest capabilities, enhancing site performance, security, and compatibility with modern web technologies. This upgrade ensures your site benefits from ongoing updates and security patches.

Upgrade Drupal 9 to 10

Even though Drupal 9 is relatively recent, it reached its end of life on November 1, 2023, making an upgrade to version 10 necessary for compatibility and optimisation.

 

Staying updated with Drupal 10 maintains support for the latest web technologies and PHP versions and enhances site security and functionality. Additionally, upgrading prevents potential compatibility issues with newer third-party modules.
