Upgrade from Joomla 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5 to Joomla 3 in seconds

NOW UPDATED FOR Joomla 3.5.1 - get the fastest, best, latest version of Joomla right away with zero downtime, zero stress, zero headaches and the ultimate foolproof, fully supported upgrade method for Joomla!

Migrate Me PLUS allows you to upgrade Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 to the latest version of Joomla! in seconds.

You can now upgrade directly to Joomla 3 with just a single click.

The upgrade will completely update your filesystem and database to the latest versions of Joomla.

Your images, articles, data and files will all be perfectly maintained, and your google page rank will be completely unaffected.

As part of the upgrade, Migrate Me PLUS will take a full backup of your database and filesystem. This means you can test out the new version of Joomla, and then if you decide you don't want it, you can simply rollback your system to your old configuration.

Get Joomla 3.5 in 90 seconds

A standard Joomla 2.5 system takes around 90 seconds to completely migrate to Joomla 3.

And in that time, Migrate Me PLUS will copy all your existing files, duplicate your database, install Joomla 3, update your Admin area, save all your articles and data and switch you to the new Joomla 3.5 Admin interface.

Watch the tutorial to see just how easy the upgrade is!

Installation and usage instructions

1) Install MigrateMe PLUS to your Joomla! 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5 system

2) Click the button to upgrade

3) Allow MigrateMe PLUS time to complete

4) Enjoy your new version of Joomla!

Hi there Tushar

To migrate Joomla 1.5 you need MigrateMe (not Plus) available here: https://www.php-web-design.com/Joomla-Components/migrate-me-professional-joomla-3-0-migration.html

This will migrate all your existing content, settings, data, and other information.

You will need to install the latest Joomla 3 version of each extension. If you have plugins that are no longer available for Joomla 3, you will need to find different plugins to do the same task, on the Joomla Extension Database

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any other questions or if I can help further in any way.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi,

I've run into an issue with the migration of a second site, from 2.5 to 3.x The migration process completed and all seemed well and so i started going through upgrading all extensions. I upgraded sh404sef and when I tried to access the component I got a message that I needed to activate the plugin. After activating the plugin a got an error message:

Fatal error: Class 'ShlSystem_Log' not found in /public_html/2016update/mmp_upgrade/plugins/system/sh404sef/sh404sef.php on line 42 which is this:

line 42: ShlSystem_Log::error('sh404sef', $msg);

Now I can't access Joomla administrator at all.

Can you please advise how I resolve this?

Thanks in advance

Hi there

I am guessing the plugin you activated was related to the old version of SH404Sef.

The way forward is to first disable this plugin. You can do so by simply opening /plugins/system/sh404sef in FTP and renaming the directory to sh404sef_disabled or something similar.

Then your admin should load ok. You can then reinstall SH404Sef (again), and it should do the trick.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi again,

The SH404Sef error is a strange one. I haven't been able to find any related problems when searching on Google, so it would suggest it's a local issue - perhaps an incompatibility with the package itself, or with the local server. I would suggest: please redownload the latest package from the SH404Sef team, to iron out any possible problems with the package. And then uninstall completely the SH404Sef extension - and check in the Extension Manager to ensure it's all gone. Then reinstall the latest package again. Hopefully if there are any issues there it should correct them. If not, please send me a login and I'll take a look for you

The Osmap issue is fortunately very straight-forward: it's just a coding notice to say that a variable hasn't been declared before it's been used. This is more like feedback for a developer rather than an error message. You can avoid notices like this if you open System > Global Configuration and reduce Error Reporting to System Default.

I hope that helps - please let me know if I can help further in any way. Barnaby Dixon

Hello Chrissie

Thank you for your questions.

Yes, migration is guaranteed, and I'll always be on hand to help you with any issues you have during the process.

The server just needs to be capable of running Joomla 3 (with PHP 5.3.10 or later)

And yes it's a money back guarantee that MigrateMe Plus will work, so there's no risk in trying it. We will ensure it works!

Yes, migrate me plus is very good. An example:

This is very complex Website with many User-Data. It is the Domain, www.stratomaniac.com.

Extensions: Virtuemart, Kunena, K2, Acymailing, Easybook, Flexicontact, Flippingbook, Onepage Checkout from Rupostel, Jsitemap Pro and Weblinks the new Version and many Plugins, Modules that it needs.

I have to migrate a lot of respect. From 1.5. to 2.5, it was a disaster. More than 50 hours of work, many Errors etc.. Now from version 2.5 to version 3.4 with migrateme plus it was not a problem. Yes, it requires knowledge, yes, but goes well. After 10 hours, the most work was done. Then CSS followed, it was a lot. That is why it is important to win time as possible. I made sure win 30 hours or more.

I work in the business and have migrated many websites. I am happy that there migrate me plus.

Migrate Me Plus

If you are looking for a quick answer to “Is this worth it, and does it work?” MOST DEFINITELY, DO IT!

If you are wondering, like I was, can it be that simple and seamless? Where is the documentation? Is this too good to be true? What if it doesn’t work or something happens?

Flat out, it is that simple and seamless. Barnaby’s solution to a dreadful and daunting task of upgrading Joomla is this GOLDEN Nugget, Migrate Me Plus.

Don’t be shy, load it up and the comprehensive documentation is presented in .pdf with detail and graphics for any level user. It checks everything as you go, it will back-up your site with old Joomla version to revert back (safety net), upgrades in sub-directory for you to check/update extensions/templates etc. before you GO LIVE. Once satisfied, ONE Click and welcome to your updated Joomla site!

WARNING! Your server may not be able to handle Migrate Me Plus’s greatness.

Yes, I did run into problems, but it was my server that had issues NOT Migrate Me Plus. Use the configuration settings to slow this race horse down, because my server could only handle pony rides.

Since my ponies were shivering in the barn, I contacted Barnaby for a much needed rescue from server shock. He was quick, efficient and most kind in response. He had me back in the race within an hour of getting my information. Barnaby for President!

Migrate Me Plus gets our full recommendation.

Hi,
Great extension ! It worked like a charm ! I migrated a Joomla 2.5 site to 3.

Everything looked OK, but I discovered afterwards that I'm not able to save anything in my new site : menu, article, configuration, etc. nothing can be saved !

Nothing happens at all when I press on the "Save" button.

How can I solve this (unfortunately I already deleted the content of the mmp_upgrade folder)?

Hi Nicole,

Thank you for your lovely comments!

Your browser has cached your old system's javascript, and hasn't yet recognised that the files have been updated.

To fix this, please click (in your browser) Menu > History > Clear Cache and clear the recent cache. On some Windows browsers, you can also click CTRL + SHIFT + DELETE while in the browser to do the same job.

After you have cleared your browser's cache, close the browser and reopen it. Then revisit your admin area and you should see it's now able to save as before.

If you continue to hit this problem, you could try opening a private browser window, which is also usually available from your browser's menu bar.

All the best & enjoy Joomla 3!

Hi Barnaby,

Interested in purchasing your tool but have a quick question first: my site is using a template
called 'Theme854' which was originally a Joomla 1.7 template.
I have not been able to find the original download location for the template nor a version that is specifically compatible with Joomla 3.4.

Is there any way to determine before hand if the template will work with 3.4? Will your tool do any sort of checking to see if it is compatible?

Cezary

Hi there,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The quickest way to test compatibility is with the Joomla demo site. If you start a new demo site, you can upload your template to easily test it on Joomla 3.

Test site is here: https://demo.joomla.org/

I suspect that you will need to make some changes before the template is completely Joomla 3 compatible, and you can see the changes that usually need to be made in the User Guide, under Step 3.4.1: Updating your template manually

You can see the Migrate Me Plus User Guide here: https://www.php-web-design.com/migratemeplus.pdf

Hi Ann,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The problem here is that the Migrate Me Plus doesn't have the permission it needs to update files and folders, so it can't create the log file.

You will need to ensure Migrate Me Plus has full read/write access to all the files on the server so that they can be updated as needed.

The best option would be to ask your server host to ensure the Apache (or default) user has read / write permissions to all the files 'owned' by the FTP user. This is usually quite easy to do.

The alternative option is to change all folders on the server to 0777 permissions while you run the migration. If you need to do this, you should change back to 0755 after migration is complete.

I hope that helps!

All the best,

Barnaby Dixon

Hi Daren,

Usually the solution here is to open Migrate Me Plus > Configuration, and change Migration Speed to 'Slower' and Enable Acceleration to 'No'.

That should help - by slowing dowh the migration speed it gives the server extra time to complete the tasks at hand and should resolve most common issues. But if you hit the problem again, please let me know exactly what the error message is (if there is one) and I'll work out what's happening here.

Major Problem. I just went live with maharajji.com and the URL has /mmp_upgrade/ in the URL. This is not good. I went with MMP because it was super important to preserve the current URLs. The site uses sh404sef, btw.

So I rolled back the site to J2.5.28.

What is wrong?

Otherwise this is a brilliant extension. Thanks so much for doing this work.

Hi there Daniel

Thank you for getting in touch

The scrollspy error is something in Joomla - it's a bug I've noticed in console too (not just in Migrate Me Plus). As far as I can tell it doesn't affect Joomla (or Migrate Me Plus) at all.

The error "Cannot read property 'error' of null" means that your server has sent an empty response to a JSON request. In simple terms - it's timed out. The best way to resolve this is to go to:
Migrate Me Plus > Configuration > Migration Speed and change it to 'Slower', and also change 'Enable Acceleration' to 'No'.

Then save the settings and rerun the Go Live.

That should fix the error, but if not it might need a closer look. At 33% it's backing up your original Joomla database tables, and a very large table (like stats, which can run to millions of records) can cause the MySql engine trouble. So if the configuration changes don't help please send me an email and we can do a TeamViewer session to try to work out what's happening.

The one other thing you could do, since it's a WAMP server, is to increase your PHP memory_limit, max_execution_time and mysql.connect_timeout

I hope that helps!

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi there,

Thank you for your great question!

Where there are severe incompatibilities that could prevent you from logging into the admin, Migrate Me Plus disables specific extensions for you. You won't need to disable any extensions before running the migration. You can safely run the migration and simply install the latest version of each extension afterwards.

Hi, there,

This is such a great migration tool.

I tried to upgrade a J2.5 site for weeks with no luck, and today, your extension did the job in seconds. What a relief! Thank you very much for having created such a useful extension for the Joomla community.

All the Best to you.

Hiya Cathy,

The problem here was that the original Joomla 2.5 database was not up to date - somehow, during a previous update, the database upgrades hadn't been saved. The way to correct this was (in the old system) to go to Extensions > Manage > Database and click Fix to correct any outstanding issues - and then to rerun the migration.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi Dimitris,

Thank you for getting in touch!

In general, any popup errors are from your server - the migration runs very very fast, and it is not always able to keep up with the speed.

The first thing to do is go to Migrate Me Plus > Configuration and reduce the Migration Speed. Try 'Slower' which should greatly reduce any strain on your server.

After this, click Start Migration to restart the migration from the beginning. You do not need to make any other change. It should complete successfully, but if you continue to hit this error, please contact me directly via support AT php-web-design.com (or reply to this email) with a screenshot for direct assistance.

Thanks & all the best,
Barnaby Dixon

Please go to Global Configuration and change the Cache to 'Off' while you run Migrate Me Plus. This will ensure the new settings are correctly saved and used by the system.

Very happy with the program, just coming across some minor issues.

Upgraded from Joomla 1.6 to 3.4 and while Joomla seems to actually be retrieving appropriate information from the database, within the CMS it shows for most screens that retrieve information from the database (Such as user manager here)

An error has occurred : 500 Table 'ab8141_asc.jml_user_notes' doesn't exist SQL=SELECT n.user_id, COUNT(n.id) As note_count FROM jml_user_notes AS n WHERE n.user_id IN (45,44,55,42,43) AND n.state >= 0 GROUP BY n.user_id

Wondering how to go about fixing this.

Hi there Reilly,

Thank you for getting in touch. The error appears to be that the configuration.php file hasn't been correctly updated, so the new system is still looking at your old Joomla 2.5 data tables. This can happen if the configuration.php file has Read-Only (0444) permission.

Please find the file /mmp_upgrade/configuration.php and change the permissions to 0644, or Read-Write. Then, edit it and find the line $dbprefix='...'; and change this to $dbprefix='mmp_xxxx_' where xxxx_ is your original prefix.

This should correct the issue, but if not, or you'd like me to take a look or do this for you, please send me an admin login to the original system and I will rerun the full migration for you, and ensure it's working as expected.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

I am getting the 500 error
checked here and saw the tmp directory issue but it looks fine to me.
Also noted this answer from 2014 "The 500 error is something you'll often get if the migration runs too fast for the server. You'll need to go to Migrate Me Plus > Configuration and change 'Processing Speed' to 5, and increase the AJAX delay to 2."

I cant find any settings to adjust MMP so perhaps this was in an older version?

Hi Derek,

I think your version of Migrate Me Plus needs to be updated. Please download the latest version, which includes updated documentation, which should show the correct settings... these are:

- Reduce the Migration Speed to Normal (or lower)
- Change Enable Acceleration to No

I hope that helps, please let me know. All the best, Barnaby Dixon

I LOVE Migrate Me Plus! It has saved me soooo much time upgrading my clients sites.

I have upgraded about 20 or so without issue, but the one I am working on right now does not show the home page content (system output) once I am in the mmp_upgrade site. It is correct on the 2.5.x site. All mods & coms have been upgraded for compatible 3.3.6

I am converting locally, then backing up and restoring the finished sites to the live domain. Again, love MMP, have had little to no problems to this point. Any ideas?

Hi there Martine,

Thank you for getting in touch. Without having seen the site, I don't know exactly what happened here - but - my advice would be to firstly check the log file for any problems, and secondly, try using a different template (try Protostar) to see if that helps. If it does... you'll need to get a Joomal 3.4 compatible template.

Hope that helps! Barnaby Dixon

Hi Barnaby, good call, the default template allowed the content to show. But I do really need to use the YooMaster theme that had all my layout and CSS settings. Any ideas why it would have lost the system output area?

Hi Martine,

I'm sorry I don't know without seeing the system. I would guess the template is causing a conflict of some kind, which would often be down to its using outdated coding techniques that are no longer compatible with the latest version of Joomla. If you enable Error Reporting, it should show the error message.

My advice would be to check with your template creator to ask if there's an update available that's specifically Joomla 3.4 compatible.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Barnaby,

Ten minutes from banging my head into the wall, I figured out what I did. Or didn't do. I had not downloaded the 3.0 version of the template to the old site before it was migrated. For some reason I thought it would only work if I added it to the migrated site. It didn't. But the migrating tool dragged the updated template from the old to the mmp upgrade site and it worked like a charm. Migratemeplus is great. This migrator is just a little dim.

Thanks.

Hello again,

Another question. I've disabled all but the Joomla Project and Rok extensions. But am having trouble uploading the 3.x version of previous template. Just get blank screen. Am I missing something here? The plan was to introduce updated versions of other extensions once the skeleton was there. Followed the suggestions of previous poster about Rockettheme templates and am almost there but not quite.

Must I fiddle with some code?

Thanks for you help.

Hi Rudaigh,

My guess is there is a third party extension interfering with the installation proceedure in some way. Have you updated all other third party extensions (particularly ones that might interfere with this process, like Akeeba Backup?)

If you can't track down the culprit, please send me a login and the template for installation and I'll work it out for you.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hello,

First of all, Holy Cow, this is great.
Second of all, I've made some mistake and need to try it again. Can't seem to find a login page now. Instead message reads in part "Fatal error: Call to undefined method Joomla\Registry\Registry::loadJSON() in /hermes/bosnaweb05a/b2893/ipg" and references RokCandy in the next part. If I were just to start the whole migration over again, would that overly complicate things? Would any changes I had made in the mmp_upgrade be retained or wiped out? I'm hoping wipe-out. Your support is first-class. Thanks.

Hi Rudaigh,

You can simply open Migrate Me and rerun the migration, and yes this will completely wipe out the old migration and start again. To be extra safe you can go to Migrate Me Plus > Configuration and change Empty Migration Folder to Yes,and it'll ensure the migration folder is empty on restart.

The error you mentioned sounds like the rokcandy extension needs to be updated - after the new migration I'd do this first.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi there,

The error is that one of your tables (wqcdy_jaem_log) is corrupted and cannot be backed up by Migrate Me Plus. This can happen if your data table is used for too long without any optimization or repair operations.

The best solution would be to fix your table, and then re-run Migrate Me Plus. But also, please download the very latest version of Migrate Me Plus from https://www.php-web-design.com/?option=com_downloads and install this before doing the Go Live, since this version will be able to bypass the error, and instead simply write the error to the log.

All the best,

I am anxious to purchase the Migrate Me Plus to migrate my Joomla! 2.5 website to 3.x. I have installed a new template that is compatiable with both 2.5 and 3.x. I haven't totally restructured my menu system etc. to the new template design, since I figure it would make more sense to do that when I have correct versions of modules for this template.

I have read all the comments, I think, and your documentation. I have not seen anything about requirements for Admin Tools Pro. I have used much of the security configuration - to the url of the admin, for example. Do I need to do anything about "loosening up" Admin Tools to do the migration?

Also, I lock my domain in my host c-Panel. I have discovered I must unlock it to allow akeeba to change the final extension in the backup file. Do I need to have the domain unlocked for MigrateMe Plus to work?

Hi there Thyme,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Admin Tools Pro is quite a complex extension, in that it affects absolutely everything your Joomla system touches, so for best results (or if you get strange errors) you might want to disable it just while the migration runs. Also just please note - you'll need to reinstall all Akeeba extensions such as Admin Tools and Backup after migration to ensure that they're using the correct Joomla 3 libraries.

Other than that you should be good to go!

The domain shouldn't matter - Migrate Me Plus creates a subfolder relative to your main domain, so whether it's locked or unlocked it should work well. But if you do hit any issues there, just let me know and I'll check things out for you if needed.

All the best - Barnaby Dixon

Hi Giuseppe,

Your test site shouldn't be 'visible' by Google or any other search engine, unless you add a link to it. But to be completely sure, you can add a robots.txt file with the following content:

User-agent: *

Hi Am interested in buying Migrate me plus as the comments above are so positive.

I see the gold option is unlimited but can I please ask the following questions?

1/ Can I use it more than once?

2/Does it create all the backups or am I still better doing that?

3/ Do I need to uninstall all third party extensions such as Virtumart, unite nivo slider and dpcalendar?

4/ Do I need to uninstall third party templates?

Sorry for the questions but I am concerned about making a mess of migration and your software looks perfect for me.

Thanks in advance

Hi Mark,

Thank you for getting in touch.

1) Yes you can use it on all your systems, as often as you like

2) It does create backups for you, and won't affect your 'live site' in any way until you 'Go Live' at which point it will completely back up your live system before making any changes.

3) No you won't need to uninstall anything.

4) No you won't need to uninstall templates. You will need to check post migration that both templates and extensions are compatible with Joomla 3, and update them where needed.

Migration is relatively easy, and usually goes flawlessly, but if you do hit any issues at all feel free to send me an email or get in touch on this board, and I'll help you resolve any issues.

All the best - Barnaby Dixon
