But settings.php IS writeable! Upgrading 6 to 7

I'm trying to upgrade from Drupal 6.x to 7.5. I'm using the instructions here: https://www.drupal.org/docs/7/upgrade-to-drupal-7/upgrade-process

Notice that settings.php IS writeable by ALL users:

Login Problem after Change URL


I did a test site as moving a site to new server before actual moving.
silverbackhd.com to http://www.yogaa.ca/sbhdtest
After the test site created, and all links re-directed from SQL, and setting.php pointed to new database and adjusted following:
$base_url = 'http://www.yogaa.ca/sbhdtest';
$cookie_domain = 'http://www.yogaa.ca/sbhdtest';

Hubspot forms not working for Drupal 6.

While I plan to upgrade to a newer version of Drupal (7 or 8), I have a current need to have Hubspot forms work when embedded into a Drupal 6 page. Has anyone had any luck with this? I contacted the folks at Hubspot and their response was to ask me to post the question here. Any experience with Hubspot forms and Drupal 6 would be appreciated.


"Description field" in cck file type not migrated when using CCK Content Migrate

I have a cck file field that is used to hold a mp3 file. I enabled the"Description field" under its settings. The "Description field" is used to "Display a text field where users may enter a description about the uploaded file."

When i used the CCK Content Migrate to upgrade from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 this "Description field" data is not migrated. Everything else works fine.

How can i get the data held in "Description field" to migrate over?

How to upgrade old Drupal6-site?

Recently I inherited one very old and outdated durpal6-site and I have to "revive" it. I'm looking at it, and honestly do not know what to do. It is some old D6-site, with 6.28 core and ~50 equally outdated modules. I think first step is to bring it to the latest 6x version, then I will try to upgrade it to 7x.

Q1: Should I start first with core, then modules? Or first modules, then core?

Q2: Can I upgrade core/modules right to the latest version (core to 6.38), or I have to go over all versions in between?
