How to update Drupal 8 core?

Let's see how to update your Drupal site between 8.x.x minor and patch versions. For example, from 8.1.2 to 8.1.3, or from 8.3.5 to 8.4.0. I hope this will help you.

  • If you are upgrading to Drupal version x.y.z

           x -> is known as the major version number

           y -> is known as the minor version number

           z -> is known as the patch version number.

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Soup to Nuts: Using Drupal VM to build local and prod

Planet Drupal - 25 March 2017 - 8:06pm

In preparing for my session Developing for Drupal 8 with Drupal VM at MidCamp later this month, I wanted to build out an example of a canonical "this is the way I'd do it" Drupal 8 site using nothing but Drupal VM and Composer. And I wanted to build both my local development environment and a production environment on DigitalOcean, all using the Ansible automation playbooks built into Drupal VM.

I also wanted to brush up Drupal VM's production environment management capabilities, so I made a few more tweaks to Drupal VM and the main Ansible role that powers the Drupal deployment and installation, and released Drupal VM 4.4 with some great production environment improvements!

Drupal core announcements: What do you change about the Admin menu for your clients? We need to know.

Planet Drupal - 25 March 2017 - 8:55am

A number of issues indicate that Drupal's core IA could be better, and solutions proposed range from isolated fixes to totally restructuring the admin menu.

At the same time, it is pretty standard that clients need customizations to the default Admin menu structure. It seems a lot of us might be doing the same thing, over-and-over.
To find sustainable solutions, we need your real world experiences.

Do you build Drupal 8 sites for clients?
Do you ever change the admin interface by adding or removing items? Do you replace it?
Are there certain modifications you make to almost all projects?

If so, please tell us your examples and experiences at

Planet Drupal - 24 March 2017 - 2:14pm

A couple of Drupalists meet WordCamp London 2017 - WordCamp London 2017 was my very first WordPress community event; my first time up close with a community rumoured to have a very different focus and feeling than the Drupal community I know and love.
