At Agaric, we perform a lot of Drupal upgrades. These very often involve transitioning away from older versions of PHP. Even when your hosting service provides multiple versions of PHP, you can still run into issues activating the appropriate one for each site: whether that's within the web server, at the command line, or via drush (or other tools). In this blog post, we'll be providing remedies for all of these cases. Most content applies to any PHP application.
As Elon Musk destroys Twitter, a lot of clients have asked about alternative social media, especially 'Mastodon'— meaning the federated network that includes thousands of servers, running that software and many other FLOSS applications, all providing interconnecting hubs for distributed social media. Agaric has some experience in those parts, so we are sharing our thoughts on the opportunity in this crisis.

Drupal 7 has a much longer lifespan than the (already pushed back) official date, and Drupal 8 has an essentially infinite lifespan because it can update in-place to Drupal 9 easily and the same will be true of Drupal 10, 11, ∞. There's no reason to rush an upgrade— but there's no reason to wait either.
I have watched in sadness and sometimes anger as large non-profit after large non-profit collectively poured enough money into Raiser's Edge and other Blackbaud licenses and consulting services to fund massive feature enhancements for the main FLOSS alternative, CiviCRM— improvements which would then be free for everyone, forever.
The struggle to take seriously the impact of racism on public health during the covid-19 crisis spotlights the importance of health communities of practice and their need to have high-quality, data-driven discussions. How do we have and expand these conversations well?
In the previous article we provided a reference of available configuration options for migrate source plugins. In today’s article we are doing something similar for destination plugins. We will present a reference of available configuration options for migrate destination plugins provided by Drupal core and some contributed modules. Knowing which options are available might require some Drupal development knowledge. By providing this reference it should make the process of writing migrations easier.
