Moving from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9

What’s involved in upgrading my website?

The transition from Drupal 7 (D7) to Drupal 9 (D9) will require a full website rebuild.

To help your transition, we suggest you review your website content. Now’s the time to remove information you no longer need and identify features you would like to keep.

Building or rebuilding your website

The process of rebuilding your website can feel overwhelming — there’s a lot to consider. Check out the building a new website section in the support centre for guidance on this process.

We suggest you start by focussing on the following four things you will need to do as part of your transition from D7:

  1. Ensure you have a website proposal in place with us for the transition.
  2. Do you have the skills to complete your project in house or will you need a development partner?
  3. Will you build your new website on or off the GovCMS platform?
  4. Let us know in advance when you plan to launch your new website

We have just over 100 GovCMS websites transitioning from D7. We need to set time aside for each agency to work through some final checks to ensure you have a smooth transition.
