What is best route for 1.5.23 to 1.5.26 upgrade?

Post by Deuxbiers » Fri Sep 27, 2013 5:44 pm

I have a client site which I know I need to update to 2.5 as soon as possible but to give me some breathing space I want to get from the current 1.5.23 version to a safer 1.5.26. The archives only show 1.5.20 to 1.5.26. Is this my only option. How will this affect my templates, plugins etc?

First take a backup of the site/database and test the backup to make sure it works. Akeeba makes backing up a breeze.

Then use the 1.5.0 to 1.5.26 package available here:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla ... ge_id=6311

Don't forget to apply the patched files recently released due to a high security vulnerability. You can get them here:

Review of the document http://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_1.5_version_history would be of help in understanding the various patch files available.

It is a better option. Alternatively, you could apply multiple patch files (i.e., from 1.5.23 to 1.5.24, 1.5.24 to 1.5.25, and 1.5.25 to 1.5.26.)

Be informed that there is a security hotfix that was released after 1.5.26 as mentioned at http://docs.joomla.org/Security_hotfixe ... L_versions. You have to apply this patch also after upgrading to 1.5.26.

Generally, it is recommended to do the upgrade in a test environment and testing it thoroughly before doing the upgrade to a production environment.

Also, it is highly recommended to take a copy of the site files and the database content before the upgrade.

Review of the document http://docs.joomla.org/J1.5:Upgrading_1 ... 5x_version would be of help in understanding the upgrade process.
