SP Upgrade
Needed to upgrade one of my commercial sites from 1.5.23 to a supported version. I've been using other update tools before, but this the first I've seen where you create the new installation first and then migrate the old content over to your development site. That's how it should be done! No fiddling with the production site, before everything has been adapted and tested!

I tried to migrate directly to 3.0, but ran into display / override problems w/ Joomla's native Contacts component, so I went back to 2.5, again using SP Ugrade. And again it took me less than 30 mins to migrate everything!

Especially, I like the idea that SP Upgrade manages the core stuff for you, and then it has the capability to copy over custom tables (in my case to use with Breezingforms). Worked like a charm!

5 stars obviously!
