Free module upgrade notifications for your site
We help you decide when to upgrade to Drupal 8
We send you free status reports about the modules you use. Add your site to get notified when you can upgrade to Drupal 8.
- The notification service is free.
- You can add as many sites as you want.
How it works
To get Drupal 8 upgrade status notifications for your site simply:
- Click the SCAN MY SITE button.
- Enter the URL of your website and your email. We will send the scan results to the email address you provide here.
- You will get a one-time login link in email. Log in and enter a password. You will use these credentials to log in to the site and check the status of your sites any time.
- You will get a notification email when your site scan is ready.
Privacy information: Only the D8upgrade team will have access to the information you provide and they will only use it to create the site upgrade reports. We think it could be valuable to share information with the community, it could help module maintainers decide what work to prioritise. However, when we share information with third parties we will do so in aggregate only, to make sure it is not identifiable. We would like to send you relevant offers and information about fundraising campaigns, but we will include them in the notification mails we send to you. We will not spam you, or let anybody else spam you.
Upgrading from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8
If you are currently running a Drupal 7 site, there is no immediate need for you to upgrade, at least not from the site maintenance perspective: Drupal 7 will be supported for quite a while longer (exactly how long is not yet clear at this moment). The only exception maybe is if you have a major change that you would like to do on your site and you would like to start off the new development on Drupal 8 to maximise the time you can run that site without upgrading.
Upgrading from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8
If you are currently running a drupal 6 site, there is a much more pressing need to upgrade. Drupal’s Security Team only supports 2 versions, so when Drupal 8 is released Drupal 6 will no longer be supported. Practically that means that security threats that are discovered in Drupal 6 will no longer be systematically addressed in a security release. Most likely that doesn’t mean your site will be vulnerable right away, but there will be a significant risk in the middle long term.
