Joomla As the Joomla team creates a better and better CMS, lots of us sit with outdated websites that are not supported anymore, or will not be supported in the near future. Developers normally take two routes to solve this. One is to put up a whole new website in a newer version of Joomla and copy and paste articles over, and the other one is to migrate the data. In some cases, the previous articles are simply forgotten, and a new website is started from scratch with no content at all.
Since migration looks like such a daunting task, most people avoid it. Migration becomes quite tricky if you have used lots of third party extensions, but if you have a website with 10 000 URL's it's much more viable than copy and paste. This talk will look at how to approach a migration properly, and how to complete it successfully, without hurting current Search Engine Rankings and hardly any downtime.
