#85 - Migrating from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5

This is a tricky one. Joomla 1.5 is no longer supported, however when you website is working, it's a tough call whether to make the decision to migrate. Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3 offer significant improvements, however the migration process from 1.5 to 2.5 is not a simple task and not a simple decision.

The official documentation has recently been updated with a very detailed migration document. We'll be putting this to the test soon with a migration and we will probably document the results of this. In the meantime, below is the link. It would be a good idea to try this on a local test server and see how it goes so that you'll be able to anticipate problems and find solutions, rather than ending up with a process which takes a lot of your time and gives very little results.
