How to migrate from Drupal to WordPress

Are you a professional blogger? Then you must have understood the prominence of WordPress, overshadowing Drupal. Many professional bloggers are now converting their web pages from Drupal to WordPress. Reason? WordPress is easier, better, and user-friendlier. Many tech-savvy people may argue that Drupal is the ideal place for technically sound ones; however, there are many, who cite for the struggle, they have faced during posting their blogs in Drupal. There are a couple of reasons, why many web users are switching from Drupal to WordPress. If you are interested to imbibe the process for a better blogging experience, here are some tips on how to migrate from Drupal to WordPress, mentioned below. Before landing on the topic, let’s take a look why you might need the switch.

 

Why WordPress is better than Drupal:

 

·         WordPress is quicker than Drupal. The tasks that you can perform on Drupal, can be executed much faster on WordPress.

·         WordPress has the autosave option, which takes care of your incomplete content, while on Drupal, there is no such option in the text editor.

·         WordPress offers more Plugins.

·         WordPress has the Thesis theme, which takes extra care to make your page rank higher in search engines.

·         There is WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor on WordPress, with which you don’t have to take extra burdens to add HTML links.

·         Moderating comments is easier on WordPress.

 

How to switch to WordPress from Drupal:

 

Migrating from Drupal to WordPress is not an easy task. A WordPress web design and development company usually first works on the offline copies in the archive. Dump Drupal database from your system and import it into a fresh database. You can use MySQL for this conversion.

Install WordPress into your system, using the old database server, where the Drupal database is kept. You now have Drupal and WordPress running on the same server but in separate database. Don’t forget to give unique names to the databases.

 

You may need some programming knowledge with MySQL and PHP to work on Drupal. You can enable PHP on Drupal following the path:

 

/drupal/admin/settings/filters

 

You need to change the location; else Google will consider it as duplicate content. With slight coding, you can inform Google that the content is being shifted from Drupal to WordPress. After the switch, whenever, you need to post something, just enable ‘Input Format’.

 

This is the basic procedure of migrating from Drupal to WordPress. Now log in to WordPress site and you will supposedly find all your contents and posts along with the comments on your new WordPress site. If you find all your posts and comments in the migrated database, you can dump the WordPress database and import the archive into a new database on the server. Now a new WordPress should be installed and configured on the server so that you can use the new database properly.

 

Your wordPress site is ready. Happy blogging!
