Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering Upgrades CMS and Hosting

Bureau of Engineering Sitemap and Solr Search

After many years on internally hosted hardware, the Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering engaged Imagistic and Fundamental Design Group (FDG) to migrate their Permit Manual to the Acquia hosting platform. 

“Moving from a Windows-based environment for both Drupal and Solr to Linux on Acquia will make the maintaining and enhancing the application significantly easier and less expensive,” explained Kevin Howard Goldberg, Imagistic's CEO. 

As part of the migration, the application was also upgraded to the newest major version of the Drupal CMS, and the newest version of PHP.
