I migrated the blog from Wordpress 6.5.x to Hugo.

It was actually fairly quick and simple thanks to a tool called wp2hugo.

While I was doing the migration, I converted all the image files to AVIF.

Now LegalBeaver.ca is lightweight and modern.

Wordpress was great and I had a lot of great experiences with it. Hugo is just a lot better and generates static html without the requirement of having an SQL database and PHP running. This should reduce the attack surface of the server and boost security.

Performance will also be greatly improved because PHP isn’t rendering every visit.

Server Grade

I am planning something big in the near future that will drive millions of people to the site so this had a lot to do with the migration.

Stay tuned
