Need to manually upgrade an old Joomla 1.5.9 site (jUpgrade does not work)
Posted on 2013-09-22
I've have read a number of posts regarding the need to upgrade a Joomla 1.5.9 site. I've tried jUpgrade but it will not work with version 1.5.9. I have installed a 3rd party add-on called Admin Tools that is supposed to handle the upgrade, however that has failed as well.
When searching for exactly how to apply the 1.5.0 -> 1.5.26 stable patch I'm reading that the files need to be expanded and then FTP's with "file overwrite" function specified. I have also tried this, however the site is STILL at version 1.5.9.
Is there somebody available that I can pay to handle this mess? Or is there a site that has exactly what is needed to accomplish this task? When we try to import the database is a new Joomla site running 2.5 we're getting errors, therefore it has bee suggested that we start by upgrading our outdated Joomla site.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
