impossible to update from 2.5 to 3.anything

Post by FDigital01 » Wed Jul 27, 2016 5:04 am

i hve uninstalled every plug in and have a very small site and yet it is impossible to upgrade from 2.5.1 to the latest version of joomla.

it is so frustrating that a seemingly simple task takes days to work out

i have virtually had to rebuild every site that i want to update from 2 to 3 - it is pitiful

it has really made me rethink my whole support of joomla

Hello, first you must update from 2.5.1 to 2.5.28 and then you must migrate to joomla 3.6.0 . Please check http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=793171 . I suggest you to make your migration local to your pc with xampp or wamp server with php version 5.5 or 5.6 . Also if your migration fails for a joomla with no third party extensions you can try to migrate from 2.5.28 to 3.4.8 from extensions manager-install the patch that you will download to your pc and then update to 3.6.0 with joomla update component .

What errors you get I am curious? White screen? Upgrade hangs at xx % ?
