How to Upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.0 How to Upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.0 Document Transcript

  • Not  so  long   ago,  Joomla  released  the  new  version  Joomla  3.0 that made  the  great  resonance among  Joomla  based  website  runners.  The  question   bothering  almost  everyone  is  whether  to upgrade  Joomla  2.5  to  the newly released  3.0 version or leave the site as is. In this post, we’ll try to address this dilemma. What are the reasons for Joomla 2.5 upgrade? ● security improvements ● new features ● bug fixes Still,  there   is  a  lot   to  be  said  before  you  make  the   final decision.  Let’s  review  the  privileges  of  the new Joomla 3.0 version in question. What you Might Get with Joomla 3.0? ● Mobile  Responsive  Tool  With  Joomla  3.0,  you’ll  be  able  to  perform  your  website management  “on­the­go”  with  you mobile  device.  It  means  you’ll  be able  to  manage  the website  running on your mobile as well as your users will totally enjoy the look of your site on any portable device. ● Article  Manager  Improvement  Joomla  3.0  features  its  advanced  article  manager toolbar with new options available and better defined icons. ● Automated  Users  Group  Organization  From  now  on  the  “guest”  level  group organization is available by default. ● Total  Improvement  In  general,  Joomla  3.0  comprises  a  variety  of innovations, but mind that until well tested, they might not work out as well as expected. Things to Consider Before Your Joomla 2.5 to 3.0 Upgrade Certainly,  new  Joomla  version looks good. However, before you make  a  final   decision,  there  are  a  few  things  you   need  to  pay close  attention to.  Make  sure  that  the  upgraded  Joomla  version of the site will definitely satisfy you and meet your needs. ● Support  The  first  thing  you have to admit that Joomla 3.0 is a short term support version and soon you would have to upgrade again to Joomla 3.5. ● Available  Extensions  Before  the  update,  check  up  your  Joomla  2.5 extensions in order to   make  sure  that  your  old  extensions  will  be  supported  after  the  site  update to  Joomla
  • 3.0.  Otherwise, you might end up lacking the necessary functionality for your website. ● Upgrade  = Migration  You  should  know that the distinctions between these versions are so  severe,  that  Joomla  2.5  to  3.0  version  upgrade  is  actually  a  migration.  It  means,  that you cannot do it with a single mouse click. ● Spring  Cleaning  Before  the  upgrade,  you’d  better  comb  through  your  content  and  filter some  information.  It  means, you  should  clean  up  some  pieces  of  your  data  that  are  not important and essential anymore. How to Upgrade Joomla 2.5 to 3.0? So,  you’ve estimated objectively all the privileges of the  new functionality of Joomla  3.0  over  your  the  2.5  version  features  and  decided  to  upgrade? Here  are  your  options:  create a  new  Joomla  3.0 installation  and start from scratch,   or  migrate  your  Joomla  2.5  website  to  3.0,  one  of  the  tools  for which is CMS2CMS.
