Upgrading DrupalEasy.com to Drupal 9, Part 2

This is part 2 of a series of videos showing the process to upgrade DrupalEasy.com to Drupal 9. 

The process is mainly based on the Upgrade Status module's report and was recording during the weekly, 2-hour DrupalEasy office hours (provided to alumni of Drupal Career Online). 

Part 2 includes:

  • Updated PHP to 7.4.
  • Updated Drupal core to 8.9 (with some Composer trouble along the way).  
  • Updated Upgrade Status module.
  • Installed and enabled Composer Deploy module.
  • Removed all Paragraphs content, uninstalled Paragraphs, Bootstrap Paragraphs, and Classy Paragraphs.
  • Updated CTools module. Updated EU Cookie Compliance module.

Note: I use the word lame multiple times during the recording, and was properly informed (very kindly) after-the-fact that I should avoid using it in the future. I complete agree, and will continue to work towards using more inclusive language in the future.
