One of main draws to Drush is the library's ability to make developer's lives easier. There are two simple commands that work using Drush aliases that can help sync database and files between multiple Drupal instances. First, we'll go over setting up an alias file for Drush. After that, we'll document the usage of Drush's sql-sync and rsync commands.

This is Part 2 of an interview with Will Eisner, Senior Director, Product at Acquia. Will’s primary focus is on Acquia Cloud Site Factory, which helps organizations create and manage many sites, from a dozen to thousands.

In Part 1, Will discussed how companies often discover, to their dismay, that they are running hundreds of Web sites, on many different platforms. In this section of the interview, Will describes how Site Factory addresses that problem.  

The interview was conducted by DC Denison, Senior Editor, Technology, at Acquia, who is represented by the letter “Q.”

As the organizer of the Washington, DC Drupal meetup for three years, I've had the benefit of finding out what works and what doesn’t when setting up a meetup. Although I recently had to step away from my organizing duties due to other commitments, I'd like to provide a retrospective on what I've learned from organizing meetups. My goal is to help those who want to set up a meetup in their area for the first time, and to help provide ideas for those who are already running a meetup.

We've been talking to our clients about Drupal upgrades a lot lately. This is not surprising, of course, given the recent release of Drupal 8, which signaled the end of life for Drupal 6.

The Drupal community is excited about all that Drupal 8 has to offer.  If you’re on Drupal 6, however, that excitement may be muted by the feeling that you're between platforms. You want to be thoughtful about your next steps. You want to anticipate all the possible consequences. The stakes are high.

Here at Advomatic we've been involved in many, many Drupal upgrade decisions in the last few months. We've gotten good at helping customers navigate the options.

So what are we now telling our current customers, and prospective customers? Read on.

This post may be of interest to project managers and sitebuilders looking to migrate from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 during the early months after the launch of GA D8.

On the Acquia Support Team we often find ourselves using Acquia’s public-facing documentation and article library as an effective tool for explaining product-related tasks, technical how-tos, and a variety of other topics. These resources are useful when communicating via our Support Help Center. Unfortunately, the underlying infrastructure for this site was Drupal 6.37.

Some time ago we were contacted by a client to execute a migration: from a soon-to-be decommissioned site into Drupal.

Just when we thought that it would be a simple process, the requirements came in: “Migrate the data from Site A into Drupal, but also join data from Spreadsheet X, and some data already inside the Drupal website.”

To handle such complicated task, with so much different data, we chose the Migrate module to make our lives easier.
