Drupal7 to Drupal8 Windows platform w/ SQL Server - anyone with experience?

Hi all,

I am helping a client with migrating an existing Drupal 7 site to Drupal 8. The D7 site is hosted on a Windows platform and uses a SQL Server back-end. It also has a few custom plugins/APIs for use with their internal system.

The objective is to migrate all this to Drupal 8 running on the same architecture. A new theme will be constructed/used so that won't be an issue.

"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?

Site suddenly not working

My site suddenly stops working with a HTTP ERROR 500. I recently upgraded it to 7.50. It was working fine until 2 hours ago. I don't where to start to trace the problem. The web server is actually working fine, except that Drupal is not processing the request.

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Recently I inherited one very old and outdated durpal6-site and I have to "revive" it.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 It is some old D6-site, with 6.28 core and ~50 equally outdated modules.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?
