Upgrading to Joomla! 1.5

Written by Soeren Eberhardt-Biermann on .

Joomla! 1.5 - To upgrade or not to upgrade is the question. Doing the upgrade is not easy - because it's actually not a "simple" upgrade, but a migration. That means you must transfer all your content (and files) from an old Joomla! 1.0.x installation to a new Joomla 1.5 installation using a "migrator component".

To guide you through the basic steps of the migration I have modified and extended a presentation by Sam Moffat and added the steps about how to migrate with VirtueMart to a new Joomla! 1.5 installation.

Let us know your experience on this hot topic.
