How to migrate your Joomla 1.5 system to 3.x

Would you like to upgrade to Joomla 2.5 - or even go straight to Joomla 3.x?

A few months ago, I was still using Joomla 1.5.

After several hack attempts, I was worried that my site would be compromised, or that my extensions would no longer be supported.

So I decided to upgrade to Joomla 2.5.

Well, I tried.

I tried out all the different migration extensions. None of them did the job. Either they missed out data, or they lost the arrangement of items, or they used the wrong article IDs.

And none of them saved the data properly to the new Joomla asset table. This meant I had trouble rearranging, deleting and editing items after the migration.

And so I developed Migrate Me.

Here's how it works

I designed Migrate Me to be really easy to use. Watch the video here, and follow these instructions:

Step 1: Install a new Joomla 2.5 (or Joomla 3) environment on your system
Step 2: Install Migrate Me
Step 3 (optional): Install the components you want to keep on your new system. This allows Migrate Me to upgrade the data during migration.
Step 4: Download a copy of your database. You can either use PHPMyAdmin or DataSafe Pro.
Step 5: Open Migrate Me, and find your backup.
Step 6: Select the data to migrate, and click 'Begin Migration'
Step 7: Migration is complete! Check the log and admin, and update your template. Job done!

 

Just look at all the benefits you get:

Articles migrated! Categories migrated!
Menus migrated! Custom HTML modules migrated!
Users migrated! Kunena data migrated!
Weblinks migrated! K2 data migrated!
Extensions data migrated! Asset table built and integrated!
Links perfectly maintained! Article IDs maintained!

 

Buy it today

Pick up Migrate Me today and experience it for yourself! In just a few moments you could be enjoying your new Joomla system, complete with all your data intact.

All purchases come with upgrades, support, and a satisfaction guarantee.

Please note: this component will only migrate Joomla! 1.5. To migrate Joomla! 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5 please use MigrateMe PLUS

Hi,

I need to migrate from 1.5.26 to 3.6, should I do it:

* in 2 steps using Migrate Me first and then Migrate Me Plus?
* on 2 different installation, Joomla 3.5 first and then another 3.6 or can I do it on the same?

Hi Franck,

Thank you for your question.

To migrate to Joomla 1.5 > 3.6 you will need MigrateMe (only).

You do not need MigrateMe Plus as well. MigrateMe can be used to migrate Joomla 1.5 to any version of Joomla from 2.5 onwards.

And you can do it on a single installation.

I hope that helps!

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

My upgrade went beautifully! Thank you for the great product and documentation.

The only snag I've hit is that now that the upgrade is all done, my log reports that it is unable to remove the mmp_upgrade directory. Can I just delete that directory with FileZilla? Or is there something in there that is still in use?

Thank you!

Hi Bethany,

Great! I'm glad it's gone well for you.

If you used the Go Live functionality in MigrateMe Plus, then yes you can safely remove the mmp_upgrade directory using Filezilla if you like. It sounds like your server has some sort of permissions issue so isn't allowing the directory to be removed automatically.

On your guide it says to try the htaccess fix first (the problem is the maximum import size is too small). Do I have to import the entire migrateme component again?

Hi Andrew,

The htaccess fix to increase your import size should take effect right away. Just copy the relevant lines from the sample htaccess file in the MigrateMe package to your current .htaccess file.

If the site becomes unavailable or the fix doesn't work, undo the change and contact your server admins for assistance. They should be able to increase your import size as needed.

There's a second way of uploading your data too though. If you rename the package to insert.sql.gz and copy it with FTP to /administrator/components/com_migrateme/ then MigrateMe will recognise that it's there and give you the option to continue the migration with this data

We used the 2.6.5 Version to Migrate 1.5 to 3.4.8

Article ids are kept, but all Categories got new numbers, why?

In your Spec you write that Article and Categories ID are Maintained.

I downloaded the newest today, 2.7.7, but when i start the Component it just hangs with Compatibility check - AJAX verifying rotating forever. 2.6.5 works.

On screen is see this:
--------
Use the uploaded database file?

A database file has already been uploaded. Would you like to migrate this?

No
Yes
Please wait...

Resume your last migration?

An incomplete migration has been detected. Would you like to resume your last migration?

Hi there

Thank you for getting in touch. Unfortunately, now with the newer versions of Joomla, some Category IDs are reserved for use by the Joomla core, so the IDs have to change to avoid conflicts. I am sorry about this - I have updated the description to reflect the change.

With your AJAX continually spinning, the reason is that your javascript files are cached in your browser. The latest version of MigrateMe has changes in the javascript files, but if your browser has cached the old files, the software won't work as it should. To correct this, please reinstall the latest version of MigrateMe, open the MigrateMe admin screen, and then refresh your browser. You can sometimes do this with CTRL + F5, or open Browser > Tools > History and clear your cache.

I hope that helps

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi Christiano,

If you need to migrate to a new server or a different database, you will first need to create a new database. Then export the original data using PHPMyAdmin, and import to the new database, again using PHPMyAdmin

Hi there,

Yes it can (actually it can go all the way to the very latest 3.4.7, released yesterday)

The template will need to be updated to work with Joomla 3. Almost all Joomla 1.5 code is deprecated and will not work with the all-new Joomla 3 framework, so it will need to be methodically updated.

Alternatively, I highly recommend installing a new, purpose-built Joomla 3.5 compatible template. That way you'll get full use of the new responsive, mobile-friendly features in Joomla 3.

Hi Andrew,

Yes - Migrate Me can migrate 1.5.26 to 3.4.8.

And yes it can migrate Kunena for you. It's best to upgrade your Joomla 1.5 system to Kunena 2.0.4, as this avoids a few issues. Once your Joomla 1.5 system is on Kunena 2.0.4 you can migrate as normal.

The way to do it is simply export your database (using DataSafe Pro preferably, but you can also use PHPMyAdmin). Just ensure that the structure and data are in the export. Then set up Joomla 3 in a subdirectory, and install Migrate Me (and nothing else). Then open Migrate Me and upload the 1.5 database backup and follow the instructions provided, and select all data for migration including the Kunena data.

Finally, install the latest version of Kunena, and it'll automatically recognise and work with your original data.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi Nikhlesh

You will need to use Migrate Me to migrate the data from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.

Then you need to install the latest version of each extension, and also update the template to Joomla 3 compatible. You could also ask your template provider for a suitable upgrade, or select a new Joomla 3 compatible template.

I don't pretend to understand joomla etc hence needing a tool to do the job for me!
I am migrating an in house Windows joomla web site from v1.5.26 to 3.4.3 on different hardware, the Datasafe pro runs very quickly on the old 1.5 server and produces a 177kB file (akeeba takes a lot longer and produces a 125MB file!).
When trying to load the Datasafe pro file in migrateme I get a "this is not a joolma 1.5 database" error.
Are there other things I should be moving manually before doing the migrateme?

Hi there Brian,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The DataSafe Pro backup is much smaller than the Akeeba one, since it includes the data only, and doesn't include files and folders.

But it should work perfectly with Joomla 1.5. If it doesn't it might be that there's an invalid character or strange feature in the database. If you can email it to me I'll analyse it manually to see what the issue might be.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

Is the MigrateMe Gold Package transferable to another admin within the same organization after I leave?

Does lifetime support and updates mean life of Joomla 3.x.x or lifetime of Joomla (all future releases for ever)?

Hi Jan,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, the Gold package can be transferred to another admin in the same organisation. Please send me an email before you leave and I can do that for you.

Lifetime support means that it'll be supported as long as Migrate Me Plus exists, and as long as it is feasible to use Migrate Me Plus to upgrade Joomla. At the moment, I am planning to support it as far as Joomla 4.5. Beyond that point, nobody yet knows if Joomla will continue to be supported or developed, or what it will look like. As we get closer to Joomla 4.5 and the development path is specified by the Joomla admins, I will know if Migrate Me Plus will be feasibly useable to migrate.

At a minimum the Gold package will allow you many years of downloads and support.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi there Jeanette,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Yes that's right, you will need Migrate Me Plus to migrate Joomla 2.5 and 3 to the latest versions, and you'll need Migrate Me to migrate your Joomla 1.5 site.

The reason I had to create two individual migration engines is because there are two different underlying frameworks for the different Joomla versions, so they need to use different migration techniques.

I hope that helps.

Hi there,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The problem you'll hit is that there will be a data conflict between your template data and the old Joomla 1.5 data.

Migrate Me does allow you to import data without overwriting existing data, but this will mean your old article IDs are lost - and so you will find that your old inbound links might not work.

The best solution is to migrate your data, overwriting all template data. Then, install the template. And finally, change the template data before you install it, by removing the existing IDs from each insert in the data.

Alternatively, you might find it's better to migrate your Joomla 1.5 data, and create a separate system to house your template demo data. Then, you can use the separate system as a guide for setting up your new Joomla 3 system with your 1.5 data.

I hope that helps. All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi there,

fits your component to migrate a Joomla 1.5.26 website with Virtuemart 1.1.6 to Joomla 3.4 and Virtuemart 3.0.6 ??

What are the steps to take, especially related to the migration of Virtuemart?

Besides standard Joomla extensions and Virtuemart there is also a RSMail (RSJoomla) component installed.

Thanks in advance for your reply. If your component fits, with the right steps, I will buy your component.

Hi Eddy,

Yes, Migrate Me will migrate Joomla 1.5 > 3.4, and this includes all Virtuemart data.

The proceedure for Virtuemart is as follows:

- Set up Joomla 3
- Install Migrate Me
- Follow the instructions to migrate all Joomla 1.5 data
- Install Virtuemart 3.0.6
- Open Virtuemart > Tools > Migration and click Start Migration to complete the migration process
- Copy all original images from their original Joomla 1.5 folder to the new Joomla 3 folder

On some systems, Virtuemart's Start Migration button will throw some errors, since there are some bugs in their code. I have developed a bug-free version of their code ,which will correctly work with any issues you hit, so if you do hit any errors during the Virtuemart > Tools > Start Migration step, just send me an email and I'll send you the VM code revision

There are no issues with migrating any RS Joomla components, so you should be fine there. Just migrate as normal, and then install the latest version of RSMail.

Hi there,

Thank you for your question.

Migrate Me Plus automatically creates a development area for you, which allows you to make changes and test, right on your live server, but without affecting in any way the live site. It's a development subfolder, so it's completely separate to the main site.

You can use Migrate Me Plus on your localhost if you like though. The way to do it is: first, copy your live site to the localhost, exactly as it is, so you have a working Joomla 2.5 site on your localhost. Then, install Migrate Me Plus and migrate as normal.

Once migration is complete and you have tested the new Joomla 3 system, please click the Go Live button to complete the migration. Then, remove the live site from your live server, and copy the localhost site to the live server.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi Bob,

Thank you for getting in touch. To use Migrate Me, you'll need a database dump, which you can get through PHPMyAdmin, and also you'll need to copy over the original images to the new system.

So you won't need to get the 1.5 site running again in order to migrate it to Joomla 3. You'll just need the database dump, and images folder.

As the server upgraded the PHP recently (why the site was broken), there's no way I can make the upgrade to 1.5 first.

If so, please follow the steps outlined here: https://docs.joomla.org/J1.5:Migrating_from_1.0.x_to_1.5_Stable

N.B. you will need a working Joomla 1.0 environment to do this, so you might need to ask your server to roll back your version of PHP temporarily.

Follow steps 1,2 and 3, which will give you a Joomla 1.5 compatible database.

After this, you can use the Joomla 1.5 compatible database to migrate to Joomla 3 with Migrate Me.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Time flies doesn't it? These sites were made in 2008 it seems, but a lot has happened since then. It looks like they are both 1.0 sites after all. I'll ask the host about rolling back PHP, but maybe this is just an opportunity for my friends to start again? Thank you.

Hi there - the latest version of MigrateMe seems to be having problems with my .sql.gz file. It stops at the jos_community_activities table and doesn't list anything beyond that. I don't see any errors in the migrateme log, but it is clearly having issues with some content in that table for some reason. The database was exported using mysqldump with no additional options.

I've previously not had any issues with it using the same database dump format - I went back and used one of my older database dumps that had previously worked and it stopped in the same location, so this must be a new thing. I wouldn't have noticed that the component had been updated were it not for the configuration options changing, but it's apparently a new version of migrateme.

I'm assuming it's hitting a weird character or something when reading the .sql file and not knowing how to handle it (multibyte character perhaps?)

Hi There,

Thank you for getting in touch.

I think you're probably right, there is an issue with the export of some kind, and you're probably right again, it's to do with something in the jos_community_activities data.

What I suggest is you create a dump with the jos_communities_activities table not included, and run the migration as normal. Then please send me the jos_communities_activities table and data, and I'll check what's happening there.

Thanks! Barnaby Dixon

MigrateMe is brilliant! It really saved my life and my clients data – all K2 Articles. I had to switch from Joomla 1.5.xx to Joomla 3.3 incl. hundereds of k2 articles with pics.

After a few Problems (wrong database) importing was really really easy. Took just a few minutes, selected the content I needed an voila: finished. All I had to do then was to copy the K2pics/folders via FTP to the new server.
Thats all. Never been easier. Thanx a lot for this component, it saved me hours/days of time.
It's worth every single Penny!!!

I'm trying to install Migrate Me in the Extensions --> install/uninstall area of my site, but it's telling me:
Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package.
I know I'm likely just an idiot and half terrified to do this migration, so it's probably a very simple problem. Can you help me determine what that is? I purchased the Migrate Me - silver package. I'm on Joomla 1.5.20 (sadly).
Thanks in advance!

Hi there Stacy,

Thank you for getting in touch.

Migrate Me needs to be installed on a Joomla 2.5 or 3 system. You can then migrate the data from the original Joomla 1.5 system.

Please see the included user guide for more information on this part of the process, it's included in the zip package.

All the best,

Hi Mohamad,

Thank you for getting back to me. Please try reinstalling K2 - it is possible that the original version is not fully compatible with Joomla 3. Also, please ensure that your .htaccess file is enabled in /mmp_upgrade/ (rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess) . If neither of these solutions works, please send me an admin login and I will check what is happening for you.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

Hi,
K2 have updated to last version [K2 v2.6.9] in first step! (to show my home page correctly)
When htaccess.txt renamed to .htaccess in my xampp server, K2 shows items but there is a 'Strict Standards' warning:
Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in C:\xampp\htdocs\mmp_upgrade\plugins\k2\k2additonalcategories\k2additonalcategories.php on line 49
Where line 46-50 in that file is:
function onK2BeforeSetQuery(&$query)
{

$mainframe = &JFactory::getApplication();
$query_parts=explode('WHERE',$query);

Where is my mistake?

Hi Mohamad,

It's not your mistake - it's the coding in the additional categories plugin. If you update this plugin, it should resolve this problem.

Alternatively, you could change the code yourself. You need to change the line

$mainframe = &JFactory::getApplication();

to

$mainframe = JFactory::getApplication();

Hi

Additional categories is up to date [V 1.0.1]. So I changed the code myself. It's OK.

Thanks for your responses, good luck.

Hello!

Can I also update Joomfish translations from an old multilingual page? Will they integrate in the native 3.0 language system?

Hi there Juan,

You can use Migrate Me to migrate your JoomFish data to Joomla 3, but it will not work with the native Joomla language system.

You will need to install FaLang, and use the Fish2Falang plugin. First, migrate the data, and then set up FaLang, and will recognise the JoomFish data, allowing you to use it in Joomla 3.

No need - you can migrate directly from any version of Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5 or 3.

Hello,

I have purchased your component Migrate me to migrate the database from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.0 and I cannot migrate the content and the categories, everytime I try to migrate this data, I have an unexpected error, with no definition. Can you help me please?

Hi there Isabel,

Thank you for getting in touch.

My guess is that the content and categories are migrating too slowly for your server, and it is returning a 'no response' error, which can appear as a blank popup, or as a 500 error.

Please go to Migrate Me > Configuration and change the processing speed to 5, and re-run the migration.

This should ensure that the migration works successfully, but if not, please send me an admin login and the data for migration and I will check to see if there's any issue with the system.

Thanks & all the best, Barnaby Dixon

Will this product work updating Joomla 1.5.26 ( To 3.x.x and Virtuemart 1.1.4 ( To Virtuemart 2.x)

Also, does it deal with plugins ?

Hi Greg,

Thank you for your question.

Yes it will update Joomla 1.5.26 to Joomla 3.

It will also assist in migrating Virtuemart 1.1.4. Firstly migrate all data, then install Virtuemart 2, and go to Virtuemart > Tools > Migrate to complete the Virtuemart migration.

And finally you will need to install the Joomla 3 versions of each plugin that you use, to ensure that they're completely up to date and compatible with Joomla 3.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

The import is working but it is very very slow in importing the content. Any recommendations on how to speed up the process would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi there Robert,

Thank you for your question. What slows down the content is the way Joomla integrates the global assets table with the contents table,which makes complex calculations that get more complex as more content is saved. It does have a long term benefit, in faster content searching and performance enhancements, but if you have a large site it can take a long time.

The only real way to speed it up is to add more server resources to your PHP configuration ,such as memory and Cpu. But if that's impossible,or doesn't have a major effect,please send me your data and I will migrate it for you and send it back to you in Joomla 3 compatible format.

All the best,
Barnaby Dixon
