I have a Drupal 7 website which has been replaced by a new Drupal 8 website (fresh website created, selected content moved manually).
I’d like to add an alias to the new website, but it’s the same name as the old Drupal 7 website and so I get the following error message:
Failed to create alias.
Reason: The name "alice-o2" is already used.
Is there a way to rename the old Drupal 7 website to release the name ?
I’d prefer not having to delete it for the time being in case we overlooked something in the migration.
Open a ticket to Drupal infrastructure and ask the admins to archive your D7 website as alice-02-d7-archived and then to assign the alice-o2 name to your D8 website.
Thanks a lot for the suggestion, will do so.
I’ve received this request privately by Mattermost.
So I’ve created a Drupal 7 site, alice-o2-d7, you should receive soon the confirmation email.
The idea is to clone alice-o2 into alice-o2-d7 and then when everything is properly cloned, delete alice-o2 website to release the name and use it to generate the alias of the Drupal 8 site.
Does this work for you?
That works for me.
But in the meantime I have created the following ticket which is being handled by a colleague of yours:
Please make sure to synchronise with him.
ok, then let’s follow on the ticket.
