Document is work in progress

These are instructions for upgrading a very old version of YMCA Website Services to the latest version. Given the fact Drupal 8.7+ has no support for automatic entity updates ( BaseFieldDefinitions ) we have to upgrade to of OpenY, which is still on 8.6 Drupal Core, and then update to the latest YMCA Website Services version as usual.

  • Use PHP7.1 for upgrade and install php7.1-mysql php7.1-mcrypt php7.1-cli php7.1-common php7.1-curl php7.1-dev php7.1-fpm php7.1-gd php7.1-mysql php7.1-memcached php7.1-imagic php7.1-xml php7.1-xdebug php7.1-mbstring php7.1-soap php7.1-zip php7.1-xml
  • Go to the folder of OpenY code tree where docroot folder is contained
  • mv composer.json composer.json.orig
  • wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/YCloudYUSA/yusaopeny-project/8.2.x/composer.json
  • mkdir -p scripts ; cd scripts && wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/YCloudYUSA/yusaopeny-project/8.2.x/scripts/remove_libraries_gitignore_files.sh && cd ..
  • composer require YCloudYUSA/yusaopeny: --no-suggest --no-update

  • drush en openy_upgrade_tool openy_er openy_prgf_loc_finder openy_map openy_data_wrapper openy_loc_branch content_moderation focal_point
  • drush ev "Drupal::service('module_installer')->install(['openy']);" <- This steps fixes some hidden bug when openy profile removed from core.extension configuration for unknown reason.
  • Manual step (optional, if you have issues with drush updatedb): Edit all yml files in profiles folder to comment media.type.image , field.field.node.program.field_header_content, field.field.node.branch.field_location_amenities in dependencies sections.




  • run drush updatedb -y <- this will fail for the first time ( Media not installed yet ), disregard
  • run drush updatedb -y <- this should run properly.
  • run drush entup
