Why upgrade to Drupal 8?

  • Drupal 9 is scheduled to be released in June 2020. However, upgrading from Drupal 8 will not be complex as the last version Drupal 8 will be the same as the first version of Drupal 9, the difference being all deprecated codes will be removed. Migration from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 will be easier than all previous migration.
  • Drupal 6 is no longer supported. i.e. there will be no further official release.

Drupal Commerce Order ID

Tue, 03 Sep 2019 - 12:58pm By binarycubes

Most payment gateway do not allow order id to be re-used. i.e. order ids cannot be duplicated when being submitted to payment gateway for processing. For our case, we were migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 for one of our clients and we decided to re-start our order ids from 40001, having already used up to over 30,000 in the old site. 

alter table commerce_order auto_increment = 40001;
