Importing an existing application

After your new subscription is created on Cloud Platform, you can import a Drupal application into your new application’s Cloud Platform environments. There are several ways to import a Drupal application to Cloud Platform, and the available options vary depending on the size and complexity of your application.

To import your existing application into Cloud Platform, select from the following methods:

  • Cloud Platform interface: This works best for applications that aren’t large (website archive under 100 MB in size).
  • Acquia Dev Desktop: This requires downloading and installing Acquia Dev Desktop, which is available for Windows and macOS. It otherwise works well for applications both large and small.
  • Drush-based import process: This requires comfort with Drush and other command-line tools, but works well for applications both large and small.

If none of these import methods works for you, you can use the manual import process, which works well for applications both large and small, but requires familiarity with source control and command line tools.
