Help with migrating users - Joomla 1.0.15 to 1.7.2

Post by crowy » Tue Nov 08, 2011 2:20 pm

I would if anyone could advise...

I'm migrating from Joomla 1.0.15 with Fireboard 1.0.5 RC to Joomla 1.7.2 with Kunena 1.7.0.

The first part of migrating Fireboard to Kunena on the new website has gone well.

I now wish to migrate my user accounts from Joomla 1.0.15 into Joomla 1.7.2.

I tried exporting the users table jos_users, but the fields are different between the old version and the new - for example there is a gid field in the source, (old version) of the users table that's not in the new version (destination) table.

I've also renamed the destination table prefix to meet security guidelines - (for info).

Any help or advice would be welcome.

I am sorry to break in here but I want to understand your reply because I am in the same fix. Needing to upgrade from 1.0.12 to whatever is more secure.

Your statement leads me to believe that I can upgrade from 1.0.12 to 1.5 in one step. Is that correct?

Also old site is using php 4 and also want to move to php 5. When is the best time to do that, before or after the Joomla update?

Thanks in advance!
