Issue when updating joomla

Post by Grupo Eclipse » Tue Oct 03, 2017 5:05 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm having some problems when i try to update joomla to the lastest version.

First of all, i tried using the component, but it says that my joomla! is the last version. (image attached).

So i started searching in the forums for help, and got to this post:, but whenever i upload the update package (the one i downloaded form the website, the joomla! 3.8 update package) and extract the zip into my joomla folder, i'm not unable to log in into my site anymore (not even see it online).

Can you please help me?

To go from 2.5 to 3x, you need to use a totally different method. See ... _Migration
Reset Joomla super user password and username simply | ... d-remotely
