Drupal 6 addresses to Drupal 7 address field help

Hi All,

I have 1000's of addresses in my drupal 6 site using the 'Addresses' module. The developers recommend using the 'Address Field' module for Drupal 7?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to migrate these fields using the 'Address Field' module? It's not straight forward to use Feeds as the data for one address (name, street, city etc) is contained in one field.

I've looked all over for an answer to this but to no avail.

Cheers in advance

Best method for 6->7 upgrade and redesign

I'm looking for advice for finding the most painless method possible for both updating and upgrading a small company website. Here are my circumstances:

update not working


I have an "old" version (7.34) installed.
Now i tried to made an update:
* Change to maintenance mode
* Copy all files from 7.38 to the drupal install dir
* run update.php (nothing to change)

-> Result: Every time the message : Installed version 7.34 (I cleared the caches, run the check again).

Any idea?


Help please.

Hello, can someone help me with the following error message please?

What files are being changed in an Upgrade?

What files are being changed while doing a version upgrade? I need to know this because I have a module: user.module which is in the modules/user/ directory, and i changed there a function called "user_pass_reset_url".
I wonder if i make upgrade for another version one day, then the modules folder will be overriden and ill be in trouble.
I know have few options to keep track on this change but I wonder if there is a best practice for changing this function inside the file in some better way?

Upgrade to 7.37 Not Recognized

First, I apologize if this is already covered in another of the seemingly endless list of posts here. I couldn't find it.

Second, yes I did read "Upgrade to 7.36 Not Recognized" and no, I did NOT forget to run update.php after my upgrade from 7.36 (which worked fine, like the past dozen or so upgrades I did the same way).

Third, my procedure differs slightly from that described in UPGRADE.txt, but as I said, it has worked perfectly for years as I promptly made each successive upgrade to my installation. Here's how I do it:
