Tools for upgrading themes

You'll want to run these sed commands over (the copy of) your old d6 themes and then do a diff to make sure nothing is broken.

Simple wget multisite cron, lazy method

I just wrote this script for running the crons on all my drupal sites before I discovered this section in the documentation. This works well for me because I'm lazy and I don't have to maintain a list of my drupal sites somewhere for it to run all my crons. The script simply reads the domains from my sites folder. It works well for me, but I think it might not work for every situation, ymmv.

Create an executable called drupalcron:

Multisite cron without wget/curl

* This script scans the sites directory, and uses a regular expression to extract the sitenames.
* It then uses this sitename to execute the cronjob for these sites.
* You then only have to create one cronjob for this script.
* In this way, you can create and delete sites on the fly, but all their cronjobs will be executed.
* Carl van Denzen, june 2009:
* Options for this script:
* -h (p.e.
* -r (p.e. .+\.vandenzen\.nl) This will be used in most cases.
* -a
* When this script is invoked with parameter -r, then it will call
* itself for every host in the sites directory that matches the -r regexp.
* These calls will be with the -h argument set to the site name.
* When invoked with -h option (only ONE is allowed), it will run cron
* for the named hostname site.
* When this script is invoked without parameters, it will die. This is to avoid
* runaway scripts.
* Purpose of this behaviour:
* You can add this script to your crontab with parameter -a: it will run
* for every site found in the drupal sites directory. This is the regular
* drupal/cron.php behaviour.
* In a one-site set-up it will only run for the default directory.
* In a multi-site set-up it will run for all sites (beware of the default directory?)

Multi-site Cron Bash Script

A quick bash script to run cron for multiple sites:


## Define your websites in an array

for((i=0; i<$len; i++)); do
        wget -q http://${sites[${i}]}/cron.php
        # You may remove (or comment) the following line if you
        # wish to retain the downloaded file.
        rm cron.php
