Joomla Upgrade

Keeping your installation of Joomla up to date allows you to remain protected against security vulnerabilities, fixes bugs, and major upgrades also add new features and functionality. The current versions of Joomla are 2.5.24, 3.2.4, and 3.3.3 (check what version you are currently running). We can do the upgrade for you following the proper upgrade procedure. We will also upgrade any out of date extensions that are installed.

We also provide a subscription service for ongoing upgrades of Joomla.

If your Joomla installation has already been hacked, upgrading it will not clean it up. In that situation we can clean up the hack and then upgrade it.

If you are currently running Joomla 1.6, 1.7 or 2.5.0-2.5.2 and you are not able to upgrade the website right away then you should disable user registration to prevent the website being hacked through a vulnerability in those versions of Joomla

We can upgrade your Joomla 1.6.x, 1.7x, 2.5.x, 3.0.x, 3.1.x, or 3.2.x, 3.3.x installation in a few hours.

Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.3 Migration

Support for Joomla 1.5 has ended. The migration process from Joomla 1.5 to 3.3 is more involved than an upgrade. Your theme and any extensions will need to be compatible with Joomla 3.3 to continue working. You can find about our service for doing a Joomla 1.5 migration here.

Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.3 Upgrade

The Joomla developers recommend that websites running Joomla 2.5 stay on that version until Joomla 3.5 is released, unless you are in need of new features in Joomla 3.x. For upgrades from 2.5 to 3.3 we will set up a test of the upgrade in a directory on your website so that you can test the website running the new version before we upgrade the live website.

Hosting Requirements For 2.5.x:

(We can check with your hosting provider to make sure that these requirements are met.)

  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0.4 or greater

Hosting Requirements For 3.3.x:
