Joomla 1.7 to 2.5

I run a cPanel server with Fantastico.
This morning I will see if I can upgrade a Joomla 1.7 to Joomla 2.5.

Remember to back up your site first!

  1. Login to the back end.
  2. Go to Extensions -> Extension Manager, Updates.
  3. Click on Find Updates.
  4. This may not be important but I did all other updates first.
  5. Now only having the up date of Joomla 2.5.2, I did this one.
  6. Update started, so far 2 minutes in and nothing has happened yet, my browser is still downloading.
  7. Cool about 2.5 minutes in and I have “Updating file was successful.”
  8. So what does it look like?
    It is different, but not much in terms of it’s skin.
    Some things are in different places (Text Filters)

To learn more on what 2.5 offers have a look at these pages.
