Note: Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 Migration to Joomla 2.5 or 3.x

Support for Joomla 1.5 has ended. The migration from Joomla 1.5 to 3.x may require somewhat more effort than a typical automated upgrade process. It requires your website theme/template and any extensions to be compatible with 2.5 / 3.x to continue working. We can convert your existing Joomla 1.5.x template to be compatible with Joomla 3.x if the compatible version of that template is not available. The time for us to perform a migration will depend on how many extensions are on your website. Joomla recommends migrating to Joomla 3.x instead of 2.5 unless you need extensions that are not available for Joomla 3.x. There are some changes in the Hosting requirements also for 2.5.x and 3.x versions. We can check with your hosting provider to make sure that these requirements are met.
