Where is Joomla 1.7? I need to upgrade from 1.5 to 3.4.5

Post by tarr74 » Mon Nov 02, 2015 12:28 pm

Hi,
I have an old database from a Joomla 1.5 now offline site.
I would like to revive it and I also would like to update to the newest version of Joomla.
So I decided to do a step-by-step upgrade from 1.5.26 to 3.4.5.

But, in the legacy versions page there is no 1.7 stuff.

What can I do?

Ok, thanks!
Sadly the system at Joomlacode won't send me the activation email :(

Hello,
If you install SP Upgrade you can migrate straight from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.4.5 and nothing else needed as software. You might need to reinstall extensions. templates and re-create navigation but all content and images etc is over within minutes (!)

We (Joomla Migration Team) wrote this for you to assist you with this task. I do disagree with the method described by Webdongle. That is too much work for nothing (and yes you pay a few bucks but done in minutes with SP Upgrade: Other methods other as described in the formal docs as referred at are not recommended)
