I have been toying with the idea trying out a CMS based website creation and have recently installed Drupal7 on my server. I have been getting to grips with the basic concepts but struggling to understand how to migrate my existing site, created in Dreamweaver (www.scotlandsartists.com), which uses a MySQL database for the majority of its content, over. After searching your forums it seems that the 'Migrate' and 'Feeds' modules are required and have installed these.
My problem, I am sure, lies in my lack of understanding in how to use them.I can export the current database tables to csv, do I then have to recreate the individual tables or will Drupal import as is. Also some of the tables are joined, does that cause any additional problems?
I also have a slideshow on the Home page and on various other pages a selection of random images on page refresh.
Are there any tutorials that would help me in my quest to move over to Drupal?
Thank you for taking the time to look at this post and hope that you experienced Drupal users can help me.
