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 the latest Joomla.
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.
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 the Migrate Me component
Step 3: Download a copy of your database. You can either use PHPMyAdmin or DataSafe Pro.
Step 4: Open Migrate Me, and find your backup.
Step 5: Select the data to migrate, and click 'Begin Migration'
Step 6 (optional): Install the components you want to keep on your new system. This allows Migrate Me to upgrade the data during migration.
Step 7: Migration is complete! Check the log and admin, and update your template. Job done!
Migrate Me has been used on thousands of systems, and a few people have been kind enough to write reviews. Here is a small selection of reviews we've received on the Joomla Extensions Database. For more (or to write your own review) click here.
Converted all my joomla 1.5 files. Converted my old joomla website with 155 pages in a few minutes. Crazy good! More than spectacular! This extension is a huge time and money saver
I used Migrate Me to upgrade over a dozen sites. Only my most complicated sites gave me any trouble, and the developer backed up his code with first-class service. Couldn't recommend another migration component so long as Migrate Me exists. Migrate Me is the BEST. You get what you pay for - a great component with even better support from the developer.
Almost too simple - you sort of expect more steps or problems, not just simply import the old database, start it going and done!
It may be one of the more expensive extensions for Joomla but it is so well worth the money and remember it is a one-off not a recurring sub
I bought this over 1 year ago. When I finally migrated, I had some problems with my data file but Barnaby helped me migrate data. Thanks.
Awesome - this works - it's as simple as that. When I hit a problem due to corrupted 3rd-party extension IDs, Barnaby was there to fix it. Phenomenal value for money - bought the Gold Package for future upgrades - has saved me weeks of frustration - best money I ever spent. Migrating from my Joomla 2.5.28 website straight to Jooma 3.4. I wish I had known about this extension a few weeks ago. No more loading endless backups after yet another failed attempt! The future is bright, thanks to Barnaby.
I used it to upgrade from J1.5 to J3. Have been wanting to do for quite a few years now but seemed to difficult before.Worth every cent. Three years of wanting to upgrade done in a few hours. Just Awesome!
Ran into a glitch with phoca guestbook migration and the developer went above and beyond to fix it for me. Even afterwards when a non-migration related problem came up, he tried to figure it out simply because it happened after using his plugin. Great!
Most extensions promise much and deliver little. This extension does exactly what it says, it upgrades your old 1.5 data to Joomla 3. Before I bought I asked a thousand questions and each time the developer replied with no hesitation. This for me is amazing. It is a paid extension, but I tried some others already and they didn't work. The time this has saved me is huge, so I say top value!!
Excellent value ! If you need to invest and don't want to go crazy this is a must!
I have used other paid-for migration tools and this one is hands down the easiest one to use. Guides you through every possible issue. At first I thought it was a bit pricey. But then I experienced how well it performed and immediately saw the value in this component. Thanks for the great extension!
