Do you plan on including turn-key solutions for migrating from specific CMSes, e.g. Wordpress? Please see a discussion I've started elsewhere about how to handle improvements I've made to a related module that currently is not already on d.o. Ultimately I'd like to merge wp2drupal into a more general app but if Migrate isn't intended to be like that then there's no point. Thanks.
I've been updating the wp2drupal module and wanted to make the changes available to the greater audience via d.o. But my changes mark at least the fourth developer who's worked on it - it was originally created by Borek Bernard, then updated by someone by the name of teodorani (who used to own teodorani.com but which is no longer working), and then partially upgraded to D6 by DenRaf.Read more
The Migrate module is already garnering some good feedback. My immediate plan is to stablize the current code base of V1 - please discuss ideas for further extension and refactoring here.
Progress update - HEAD (0.2) can now handle Drupal 5-7, site cloning and migration of sites between platforms (aka: upgrades)
I pushed through with some of the changes I was making on monday, and implemented a mechanism for provision to conditionally include version specific code. What this means, is that 1 checkout of provision, will now have all the information it needs to manage any supported version of Drupal you throw at it.Read more

I'm not a MySQL fun, so some troubles with MySQL database (MyISAM data corruption and too slow InnoDB) force migration of three existing Drupal 6 sites from MySQL to PostgreSQL. Since Drupal 6.2 some PgSQL-related bugs (sample) in core modules has been fixed, so I have a try.
Drupal 6.5 and PostgreSQL 8.3 compatibility
Drupal Core Modules
I've installed clean Drupal 6.5 on top of PostgreSQL 8.3.3 (with UTF8 database encoding) and played with it a lot. There is no heavy troubles, only minor ones:Read more
I'm working on a migration path from the video module to the filefield module (using jQuery Media for playback). In terms of database language, I'm a Filemaker hack so I'm seriously struggling with many aspects of mysql, but I think I have laid out a good plan for attack and have a really good starting point to work from. I'm basically adapting a migration script that Moshe built for us at CCTV to migrate from the Image module to Imagefield.Read more
Hey all, as I mentioned last night at the LA Drupal group I'm trying to move a Drupal install from a Windows XP box to a Linux box (Fedora Core 8). I'm working in the command line and I've done a mysqldump to a .sql file which I then move to the Fedora box. Both are running the same version of MySQL but as soon as I load the data into the database I get 404 errors when I try to hit the site.
As many of you mentioned last night there should be no issue in moving a database. I'm sure I'm doing something else wrong.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
