Very very big can of worms. I expected that i can update the page. But that's not how it works. We need to start with a fresh Drupal 8 installation, and migrate the content.

So i start from scratch at the moment ...

This is something bigger. We started with a simple Drupal installation and ended in a server problem which we couldn't solve yet. And the one who is able to fix it will be away for a few days.

So unassigning for now.

Geez. No forum, no tracker, no wiki, and from the other functionality half of the modules isn't available for Drupal 8 neither. They have made Drupal 7 deprecated ways too early. The port is impossible in the current Drupal 8 state. We couldn't even rebuild the page without a database port, which is the main goal.

This means for us that for now it's end of road. Either we wait until the for us important modules gets portet. Or we switch to another CMS. Not a happy bunny here.

Fact is, Drupal 7 is deprecated, and is not longer maintained. So we have to move on, sooner or later.

Postponing once more ...
