How to Upgrade from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5

  1. 1. Generally,  changing  from  an  older  to  the  newer  version  of  software  is  called  “upgrade”  and  is  a rather  simple   process.  However,Joomla  CMS  has  so  severe  distinctions   between  its  existing versions,  that  there’s  no mechanism available to upgrade between the major versions (1.5 to 2.5 or 1.5 to 3.0). This  is  why  upgrading  your  Joomla  1.5  to  2.5  is actually  the  migration,  because  it  involves moving files, plugins, template etc to the new website. There exist three basic ways of migration between major Joomla versions: ● start  from  scratch  – it  means,  you  have set up Joomla 2.5. website and manually move all the content from 1.5 site. ● convert  website  using  third  party  extension  – it  will shorten and ease the process of migration. ● migrate  using  an  automated  online  service  –  which means no plugin installations, no manual data transfer. The process is very simple and speedy. Tutorial on Updating Joomla 1.5 to 2.5 Automatedly In   this  post  you  can  find  a  detailed  instruction  on  Joomla  2.5  automated  upgrade.  But   before getting started, you need to prepare for the migration.
