I recently migrated a clients site from Joomla1.5 to Joomla2.5 and would like to share with you some of the issues I ran into. Essentially the migration was a success but only after a lot of extra work trying to recover from poor decisions along the way.
As far as I know there are 4 ways you could migrate your site:
- Manually table by table using the process detailed here: link to joomla migrate
- Using the new JUpgrade Pro Restful methodology (Sounds great)
- Using the older Jupgrade free utility (doesn't sound too bad)
- SP Migrate (Another Commercial App)
During my migration, I used 2 and 3 and a bit of 1.
