Migrate Me Plus Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Now you can upgrade directly to Joomla 3.3!

Migrate Me PLUS allows you to upgrade Joomla 1.6, 1.7 and 2.5 to the latest version of Joomla! in seconds.

You can now upgrade to Joomla 3 with just a single click.

The upgrade will completely update your filesystem and database to the latest versions of Joomla.

Your images, articles, data and files will all be perfectly maintained, and your google page rank will be completely unaffected.

As part of the upgrade, Migrate Me PLUS will take a full backup of your database and filesystem. This means you can test out the new version of Joomla, and then if you decide you don't want it, you can simply rollback your system to your old configuration.

Get Joomla 3 in 90 seconds

A standard Joomla 2.5 system takes around 90 seconds to completely migrate to Joomla 3.

And in that time, Migrate Me PLUS will copy all your existing files, duplicate your database, install Joomla 3, update your Admin area, save all your articles and data and switch you to the new Joomla 3 Admin interface.

After spending days upgrading a site from J2.5 to J3. I decided to give this component a shot. It made the task much more manageable.

The fact that it creates a test install for you to work with saved hours backing up the site and installing it on a test server myself. The one button go live works well too, allowing you to launch a test in just a few minutes.

I experience a problem with a couple of components that were not J3 compatible. I had previously upgraded those components, but it left some J2.5 files behind that caused problems. It even prevented me from entering the admin back end. I emailed Barnaby and he quickly responded the next morning with what to do to fix it.

Very satisfied with the component and the support. This component may save you hours of aggravation. Simply the best way to upgrade!

This extension saved my butt! I needed some customer support to help with a few bugs with my site during the migration and they were amazing. (*Tip* Follow the instructions*) Got my site back up and running in no time. (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) I have been using it now to update all my sites. I happily recommend this to anyone needing to migrate to J3.

I've been thinking of upgrading for some time but the prospect has always seemed very daunting.
This Joomla Extension works! You still have to upgrade all the old components, modules, plug-ins and templates, but it produces a working Joomla 3 environment in the Backend to enable you to do this.
I had problems mainly down to missing a module or plug-in, or not having the latest version, but any problems were very quickly sorted out by Barnaby.
Very highly recommended.

Simply fantastic extension.

One click and I've got a test site to work with updating any extensions or templates not compatible with Joomla 3.3

Another click and that test site is live.

Simply awesome how easy the upgrade and migration process is.

Great software, easy to use and more importantly, great support! Even a buffoon like me managed it with Barnaby's help. (which was after 5pm on a bank holiday & answered within minutes)
Highly recommended

I used this extension to migrate my 2.5 site to Joomla 3. I also wanted to install and configure a new template, and had quite a lot of extensions to move/replace. Barnaby answered all my pre-sales questions promptly and thoroughly. I was pretty confident that everything would go smoothly after reading several reviews, but in my case there were several glitches due to incompatible extensions and a problem with the configuration file. The support response was excellent. My expertise goes up to editing a file in php, if I'm told what to do, so I was able to follow the excellent, clear instructions and fix the migration to the testing folder. Barnaby also offered to fix it himself if I didn't feel confident editing those files - he really goes out of his way to help. After perfecting my new site in a test folder, I then experienced another glitch going live. Barnaby again responded first thing in the morning, fixed the problem and was generally most helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I was quoted £200 elsewhere for this migration, so the £50 fee is well worth the money. The support is truly excellent and the migration process itself is uncomplicated. Highly recommended.

I've been spending the past few weeks trying to migrate a J! 2.5.19/20 site to J! 3.2.3.

I've been using a local copy on my desktop using WAMP Server to test the migration.

I've followed all the directions as given in the J! 3.x migration forum, and kept hitting a wall with the migration. Nothing seemed to work.

I finally decided that I would have to find a migration extension. I checked all the various ones listed in the JED, but what blew me away was the demo video for Migrate Me Plus.

I bought it, tried it, and it works. PERIOD

Looking around and trying to find something to help me upgrade my site, I came across Migrate Me Plus and what a smart extension this is. And what makes it even better is the fantastic support and assistance from Barnaby. My site converted fine - this is really a fantastic tool for someone who does not have lots of Joomla experience

I was dreading the thought of moving a site from 2.5 to 3.2, but I'm happy to report that all went very well. And when I had a question, you were very quick to reply - that's great service.

Naturally, I had to update a template and some extensions, but that was to be expected.

You did a great job with this component and you have saved me from a lot of heartache.

Thanks again and I do look forward to learning of your next Joomla extension … whatever it may be.

When looking for tools to convert a Joomla 1.7 site to 3.x I came across this tool. It had good positive feedback so I bought it and used it to convert a 1.7 site to 3.2.2. It works like a charm, really smooth and fast. However, when I tried to open the site it didn't show up and in the admin section of the site not all parts were functioning. So I contact support. You never know how good support is until you need it. I received very fast a mail back and indeed, as indicated in the manual (which I should have read before) the problem was not due to the Migrate Me Plus tool, but due to incompatible components/modules/plugins. So I started by upgrading them one by one and when I completed the list the site functions perfectly. So before migrating a site it is best to make a full inventory of all the components/modules/etc. and check if they are compatible/available for the version to which you migrate. It is really a great tool, I can recommend it to everybody. The support I received is really top!

I had two OLD Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 sites that needed to be upgraded ASAP because they were hacked and I was dreading trying to figure out how to do it.

In steps the AWESOME Migrate Me Plus and in a few minutes BOTH sites are upgraded to Joomla 3.2.2

I cannot recommend Migrate Me Plus enough!!

I have upgraded 4 sites from J 2.5 to 3.2. No problems at all. Did the upgrades on WAMP, worked out all the kinks, and moved to live sites. Well worth the expense.

For a while I've been searching for an easy way to migrate my joomla 2.5 site to Joomla 3.2. I've been all the suggestions on how to do it by hand. Stop doing it the hard way and get this addon! It's worth every bit of the cost, especially if you have a well established site. Before migrating, please make sure your extensions and plugins,etc are J3.x compatible. If they are everything should be sailing. If they are not compatible, uninstall them first.
Another point I want to make is that Barnaby provides awesome support and has been a great help. Thank you Barnaby! :)
