SQLite backup and migrate

So because it seemed more convenient at the time, I built a site with SQLite for the db. Now the site is big with loads of content, and I need to swap to a better server (currently on crappy shared hosting).

I cannot find any way of copying the entire site. The only option seems to be by using shell commands (I don't have access) or by just plain old copying all the files (results in corrupt db).

My site is trapped, and worse, I have no backup should anything fail. If anyone had mentioned the pitfalls of SQLite I would have stuck with SQL.

Can anyone help me?

Image import

Hi all,
I know, I waited way to long, but I'm upgrading my website from drupal 6 to 7. I know the image module is in core now but I have a lot of image galleries on my website. In drupal 6 I uploaded all the pictures via ftp (to the map file/images/import) and then I could click image import after I created a gallery in taxonomy. But how can I do this in drupal 7 ?

Can some help me to set up this in drupal 7 ? which modules to use (I have ctool already).

thank you

Upgrading from 6 to Drupal 7 or 8


My developer informed me today that Drupal 6 will no longer be supported. Our website is on Drupal 6. Can somebody here please tell me if it is mandatory to upgrade to a newer version? I would rather not... but I need to determine if it is a must.

I know we have several modules on our website. What kind of problems can we face if we dont do the update?

Thanks for your help.

Odd modules missing errors with after 7.5 core update

I have updated to drupal 7.5. It's the first update to drupal core on this site in a year or so (it was probably on 7.28 before). The update completed ok, but what was odd is that when I visited update.php, it listed a raft of 'missing' modules like this:

User warning: The following module is missing from the file system: content. In order to fix this, put the module back in its original location. For more information, see the documentation page. in _drupal_trigger_error_with_delayed_logging() (line 1128 of H:\root\home\siteloc001\www\mysited7\includes\
