Frequently Asked Question

Can I trasfer the datas from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3?

Yes, the transfer is possible, this would have to be done manually.

However, the following should be noted:

  • Have registered users made a registration?
  • Do exist user rules?
  • Have tutors been assinged with Joomla User?
  • etc.

These associations would be lost if you do not copy the users from J2.5 to J3.5. That means:

  • All booking rules (user / category / period / quantity) are removed
  • all references between tutors and Joomla users are removed (Tutor can no longer log into backend);
  • created_by and modified_by in courses and course templates are set to an existing super user (the former information is lost);
  • uploaded_by in File Manager is set to an existing super user (the former information is lost);
  • Favorite table is emptied

You could put it all back if you do not want to copy the users. The result would be that all courses would basically look like they were created by a Superuser after the data transfer and the Joomla accounts for the coaches are no longer available and would need to be recreated.

If you are unsure, you can request a quote from us. If there are no user assignments, we usually need about 2 hours for the transfer. For user assignments, we need a few hours more, because we would have to transfer the user or put everything back.
