Ask yourself: **WHAT IS THAT WORTH TO YOU**
Important - If you are upgrading Community Builder, YOU MUST go into you PhpMyadmin first on the DESTINATION site (_user table)and create all fields and columns so they match exactly with your source (_user table)database table. Do this before you attempt the CB extention transfer.
Thanks again SP CYEND Support Team!!
It installed and just worked without any problems including migrating the Agora Pro database.
I also liked the concept of migrating into a fresh system that you can test and adjust first before implementing it on the live system.
I follow the instructions and the migration occured but for some reason a couple of items failed (I think my site is a bit old an intricate). Since I couldn't use the migrated 3.1 site I was going to ask for a refund.
Cyend were professional in their approach. They offered me the possibility of a refund but also offered to help me sort out the issue with the migration.
In the end they sorted out the problem and now I have a working 3.1 site on which I will have to make some adjustment but the migration saved me lots of works.
Totally recommend them. They were responsive in a timely fashion, concise and effective in their approach.
One or two connection issues between different hosting companies where the old and new websites were situated, but each time I needed help my request was swiftly dealt with by Panayiotis.
A lot of work has gone in to this component which has made updating my websites relatively simple, and easily worth the modest cost.
I tested a couple of versions of jupgrade, but I never had it to migrate more than parts of the J 1.5 site.
I absolutely recommend SP Upgrade. I migrated more than 40 Joomla sites, so this component made the work much easier.
I suppose you mean duplicate alias and not ids. Ids remain the same.
There is a new rule now in Joomla! that was not in version 1.5. In order to be compliant with SEO and Google requirement to have one content per one url, and given that alias are used to build the urls, you cannot have the same alias under the same parent. That goes for menus, articles etc.
Therefore SP Upgrade when identify such case, automatically add a random qualifier to the alias. Even if you try to manually edit it from back end, you will see that Joomla! will not allow it.
It is probable those duplicates comes from your trash. Therefore before migration it is suggested to delete and empty trash for any not needed items.

I tried this extension (SPTransfer, not SP Upgrade) as a last-ditch effort, and all I can say is WOW. Not only did the extension work great, but because it migrates your settings from one site to another, you don't lose your original site. In other words, no risk.
The help support has been fantastic as well. First time I migrated I encountered one minor anomaly (no menus were transferred), but after emailing the developer I received a response back within hours and discovered that I had made a mistake with one of the settings I used during the transfer. Following the dev's advice, I re-migrated, and everything came over perfectly.
Again - this is a fantastic extension, it works very well, and the support is great. If you've been struggling with an upgrade (or given up on one, as I was about to), then please please PLEASE give this extension a try.
NOTE: SP Upgrade can transfer data between Joomla 1.5 -> 2.5, 1.5 -> 3.0, and 1.5 -> 3.1. SP Transfer (the app I bought and used) can transfer data between a number of combination of Joomla versions (1.6, 1.7, 2.5, 3.0, and 3.1).
Panayiotis Halouvas, the owner/developer of SP Upgrade was extremely helpful and responded almost immediately to my questions.
Bottom line is the application worked as advertised.
I couldn't be happier.
