Upgrading Joomla from 2.5 to 3.00 or 3.2.3 5 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi John,
I have the Joomla! 2.5.22 in my website, and now I need to upgrade it to either 3.000 or 3.2.3

[morningside.org]

Of course there are some other extensions, components, modules and plugins which I will need to ask about their situation as well. But I need to get your advise regarding upgrading to Joomla 3.00 or 3.20 (by the way, do you recommend that step?) and if the answer is yes, what would be the safest and easiest way to upgrade?

Thank you so very much.

Hi Zarief,

if you need to upgrade, you have to do this using the latest version of Joomla available, currently 3.3.2.

Upgrading from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.x series is not mandatory, and is enterily up to you. If you need particular features not available in Joomla 2.5 you can upgrade, otherwise stay on Joomla 2.5.

If you choose to upgrade, keep in mind that probably quite all extensions installed will need to be upgraded, also my JSitemap component.

The procedure to upgrade can be done using the Joomla update component, enabling the 'Long term release' option in the configuration of the component.

Before you go on with such an upgrade, it's strongly recommended to take a full backup of current site, even better it would be perform some tests on a demo domain.

Best regards


John

Hi

So what's the sequence...

-upgrade J2.5.x -> J3.x with Sitemap PRO for J2.x installed?
or
-install Sitemap PRO for J3 first (on J2.5), then upgrade to J3.x?

Regards

Hi,

no you can't install a component for Joomla 3 on Joomla 2.5

The correct sequence is:

- Upgrade Joomla from 2.5 to 3.x
- Install JSitemap PRO for Joomla 3 over the current one for Joomla 2.5
- Check if everything works fine. If 'Yes' you are done. If 'No' probably a clean installation is required.

Regards,
John

Cool
Many thanks. Here goes...

Good to know I can't generally install a J3.x extension on J2.5.x
