Moving an existing Drupal site (either a production site or one built on a development server) to an OIT Web Hosting account is not terribly difficult, but it is important to make sure you follow all of the right steps.
Editor's Note: We sincerely hope that no one is still running a site on Drupal 6 at this point, but just in case you should inherit a site that turns out to still be on Drupal 6, we're leaving the following instructions in place, even though they are a bit outdated now, and there's no guarantee that the external links will continue to work.
Before You Begin
Create a SEPARATE Test site to use for this process, so you don't kill your Live, Production site and...BACK UP EVERYTHING!
