Upgrading CCK from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6

Yet another follow-up post to my post re upgrading from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6. This is a note about upgrading the CCK module.  The module page has a very through discussion on need to update the CCK module before other modules. The easiest way to do this is to

Upgrading drupal image module from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6

Another follow-up to my post about upgrading from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6.  This note is about the image module.

If upgrading a Drupal-5 site that utilizes the image module, and you follow my directions explicitly, you'll get an error when trying to update the image module.

Call to undefined function image_get_sizes()

Upgrading drupal fckeditor module from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6

In my post about upgrading from Drupal-5 to Drupal-6, I said I'd post further updates about issues encountered while upgrading certain contrib modules.

Well, I had an issue upgrading the fckeditor module.  I didn't write down the actual error message, but on the update, I received notice of an SQL error that mods to a table couldn't be made.  Turns out some of the tables required by fckeditor never had been created.

Mailing Lists

At some point, I'd like to investigate setting up a full-bore web-fronted mailing list.  Initially with the bikegeeks list, we discussed fronting the mailman list with a site so that users could sign up for the mailing list directly on the website.  This (I guess) could be done with the 'Mailman Register' and 'User Mailman Register' modules (see refs #1 and #2) below.  This would remove the necessity of sending the users off the site to sign up for the list and remove the necessity to interact with the primitive-looking mailman interface.

Drupal installation guidlines -- Drupal best practices

As a follow up to my posting about the my Drupal script library, I thought I'd write a bit about the installation techniques I've been using for Drupal installs.

As described in the script README file (and practiced by the drupalDeploy.sh script), I create and maintain a particular installation system w/ all my Drupal site installations.

Drupal Script Library

I have created a nifty set of scripts for managing collections of Drupal installations.  I find them indispensable for maintaining a large stable of Drupal sites. The scripts allow for automated install and patching of Drupal installations as well as a host of other administrative tasks.  They enforce and leverage my best practices for Drupal deployments.  They extend Drush to make things easier (at least for me).
