Very good tool!

Wow! I've saved tie migrating from 1.5.23 to 3.3 using database method. May be needs to improve some documentation about.

First upgrade from j1.5 to j2.5 broke the asset table (a common problem with upgrades apparently). Prompt support from Matias who sent an upgraded version of JupgradePro which worked perfectly. Note media directories not migrated but that's easy to do in FTP. Brilliant support means I give it 5 stars

Excellent Extension

Posted on 29 April 2014

I wanted to migrate my Joomla 1.5 to a newer version.

So I searched the web and found jUpgradePro.

Installation and configuration is really easy and starting the migration is as simple as pressing a buton.

I run into some problems, but the support is really fast. Less than 24h I got an answer. My problem is a known bug with restFUL mode and the devs are already fixing it.

So I tried database mode and that worked for me, although I had to manually reorder the menu.

Really great and useful extension.

Joomla 1.5 to joomla 3.2

Posted on 19 February 2014

Joomla 1.5 to joomla 3.2 it's a hard task.

I tested Jupgradepro because the siteground tutorial. But the tutorial is made with a simple joomla 1.5 website, and in my case i have a very big 1.5 website.

I had some problems in migrating, but the support was excellent.

I'm a newbie in this matters, but the support have the patience to help and resolve the problems of my case.

I think all 1.5 joomla websites are very different, so it's difficult to have a 100% solution that works for all.

I rated excellent! because the support was excellent and fast to find solutions.

I recommend!

jUpgradePro is really convenient to use and configure. With Brian Teeman videos. The work is pretty straightforward.

However, if your website contains various external components or specific templates, the migration preformed by jUpgradePro is **useless**. E.g., K2 data is not migrated at all, and there is no easy way to do that.

It is a pity that the Joomla team did not foreseen any migration tool when they revamped Joomla from 1.5 to 2.x. jUpgradePro that they promote as THE solution for this migration is definitely **not*that*solution** for most websites.

I have used jupgrade pro and it converted two large sites of me without any problem. I do have to add that I used the fabulous video tutorial of Brian Teeman at siteground and followed precisely the procedures mentioned. Do NOT try to figure out yourself, but follow the manual. Within 30 minutes I was done.

Extra plugin does not work

I have used this extension to migrate a site.

The basics were migrated, but i needed to migrate a Kunena forum as well.

Bought the kunena migration plugin, but it didn't work at all. Wrote in the forums and others had the same problem. I was contacted and gave them the details they needed to find the problem. They replied they would look into it. Now several weeks later i have't heard from them and they don't answer my mails.

I have migrated the Kunena data manually now.

The download was from the redcomponent website

Works with Joomla 3.0.2

I could not get the extension to work when I was using Joomla 3.1, but I was able to download Joomla 3.0.2 and it worked first try. Not bad for free though :-)

Good Migrationtool

At first jupgradePro is Free. You just have to register on the site. maybe old version you had to pay for?

I've migrated about ten sites in the last two months from 1.5 to 2.5 or 3.1. Sometimes i had problems with PHP-Settings or write permissions, but at least i always was able to migrate after fixing this things.

With the latest version 3.1.0 Database and Restful Method works without any problem. Done one migration last week and one today without any issue. So my vote is thumbs up!

Wasted half a day on this

Posted on 03 September 2013

I could only add to the negative ratings.

Database method on 2.5 is not working.

Hangs here or there and does nothing.

Switching on the RestFull plugin on the 1.5 site results in a white page, front- and backend. Had to deactivate the plugin in the database.

Registration is awful.

I'd be angry, if I'd spent money on this one. It's almost a hoax to name it a Pro version, of a well known tool.

I suggest taking this extension off the list.
