After presenting on ‘Migration to Drupal’ on Monday 12th April at DrupalCambs, had a few good chats about the nature of the Drupal database and associated points.
Potentially, Migration to Drupal, I believe is fairly straighforward depending that you understand both the source and the target data well. Therefore in most cases you need to know your database and the Drupal MySql (or PostgreSql) database. However, for future reference it appears that when using content management systems, there is a belief that you don’t need to understand how the data interacts providing that it does.
