Upgrade 1.0.10 to the current version

Post by frankman71 » Sun Apr 15, 2012 6:30 pm

Hello Experts,

I´m new here, so first I want to say hello: Hello!

I want to upgrade a joomla from version 1.0.10 to the current version 2.5. I searched in this forum and in the internet but I don´t find any helpful article. I just found thinks like: how to upgrade from 1.0.10 to 1.0.15 with the step 1.0.13 between.

OK, I will do this before I can continue to upgrade to the current version, but where can I get the upgrade kits for that old versions?

Or I found an article here in forum about an upgrade from 1.0.x to 1.5. I the article I read that it´s not really easy to do this but I don´t find how to do this ...

So here my qustion:

- Somebody knows a Site where I can find an explanation how to upgrade from an very old version to the current version?

- Or somebody know where I can get the old upgrade kits to upgrade step by step?

Many thanks for any help!!

Frank

Migrating from Mambo 4.5.1a to Joomla 2.5 (yikes!)

Post by IkariGendo » Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:32 pm

Disclaimer: it's not a commercial page, more of a hobby site and it's hosted free of charge by a nice person. I also have pretty basic html knowledge and not much else.

First of all, I sort of "inherited" the site, so not much I can do about it, the webpage is still stuck on ye olde mambo 4.5.1a, with server php upgrades, mambo has stopped playing nice.

I have a separate installation of joomla 2.5, another person will help me with the data migration. At a glance, joomla 2.5 doesn't look all that different from mambo, but I guess stuff changed under the hood. Fortunately I do not have a lot of plugins, modules and other complicated bits, main upgrade will be the simpleboard forum to kunena which was mainly used for commenting.

As far as I can tell the template system changed as well, so I'll need to work on that as well... can anyone point me to some helpful articles or point out what I can automate and what I'll have to sort out manually for example, the menu structure?

I can paste the url, what plugins, modules I use, see if I can find what needs to be worked on. Any help is greatly appreciated.

If I remember correctly that far back, for Mambo version below 4.5.2 this article might still apply http://help.joomla.org/content/view/818/181/ as the J1.0 to J1.5 migration compnent won't work.
You are going to have to jump in 2 stages. Mambo > J1.5.26 > J2.5.4.
The last jump should be easier with migrator options available now. Check the JED http://extensions.joomla.org/search?q=migration Templates will be an issue so try to use the stock template during the migrations.

Migrate Mambo 4.6.5 to Joomla 2.5.4

Post by cappsie » Sun Apr 22, 2012 3:44 pm

Hi All,

I'm still a bit stuck with regard to migrating Migrate Mambo 4.6.5 to Joomla 2.5.4.

Ideally I need a simply migration guide. I did already post here: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=701342

But I didn't receive a definitive response AND Joomla is now on 2.5.4 and not 2.5.2.

Can someone please help me :(

Thanks,
Adam
