Drupal Site Audit and Review

Do you have a Drupal site but aren’t really sure what state it’s in? Are you looking to redevelop your site but not sure where to start? Then our Drupal Site Audit and Review service might be able to help, read on to find out more!

What state is your Drupal site in?

Websites can be an unwieldy beast at times so it can be difficult to know exactly what state your current Drupal website is in, what issues need to be addressed and what can be optimised. With our Drupal Site Audit and Review service we’ll take care of all the hard work for you by reviewing your current Drupal setup and configuration.  We can also assess your hosting architecture and any bespoke code. It’s important to note that the purpose of the audit is to offer an honest assessment of where you are and what needs to be done.

See what work needs to be done

In order to keep your Drupal website secure you need to ensure you’re running the latest version of Drupal core and any contributed modules you may be using. As Drupal is open source all of the hard work is taken care of by its active community of developers but you still have to make sure you apply updates as and when they become available to make sure your website is as efficient and secure as possible. Our Drupal Site Audit and Review service will assess what versions you’re running and whether there are any security updates that need to be applied. In addition to this we’ll have a look at any custom code you have to ensure it follows the Drupal coding standards and is written just as it should be. Any issues we find will be clearly identified in an audit report so that they can be addressed and fixed.

Examples of Issues Uncovered

To give you a better idea of what sort of thing a site audit can uncover here are some examples of the more common and interesting things that a site audit can throw up. Two thirds of all the sites we audit throw up a major security issue such as leaking user data (names, emails etc) through to anonymous users being able to edit or delete content! By applying a systematic approach to auditing your Drupal website we can make sure that you’re not falling foul of any major security issues. Other common issues we uncover relate to the configuration of your Drupal server setup meaning that things like the settings.php file and other code are publicly accessible. Things like this can be easily rectified by correctly configuring permissions on your server.  Our Drupal site audit service looks at both your Drupal and server configuration to make sure that all potential issues get caught. This is just a taster of the sort of thing we tend to uncover so if you are looking for an in depth audit of your Drupal website then we would love to help!
