BACK UP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO USE THIS MODULE FOR AN UPGRADE. Really. We're not kidding.
Tentative upgrade instructions (these may change):
- Before upgrading your site to Drupal 8, update to the latest 7.x-3.x release of Views on your Drupal 7 site.
- Back up your data and place your site in maintenance mode.
- Install the 7.x-1.x release of this module.
- Navigate to
admin/build/views_d8_upgradeand click "Perform upgrade." Warning: This will copy your Views data and uninstall the Drupal 7 Views module.
- Follow the Drupal core instructions for upgrading to Drupal 8, including updating this module to its D8 version. This will convert your old Views data (still saved in the database) to Drupal 8 Views.
