If you run your website on Joomla! 2.5.x, 1.5.x or even Joomla! 1.0.x, it is urgently recommended to migrate to the latest Joomla! Version 3.8.x, because the old versions are no longer supplied with security updates. They are no longer supported and you run the risk that your website will be hacked and your content will be deleted. Security Updates for version 2.5.x were only delivered until the end of december 2014, so it is strongly recommended now to upgrade to Joomla! 3.8.x (eventually with modifications to the template).
A migration proceeds in three steps. First the new Joomla! files are placed in a subfolder of the web space, then the database will be transferred to the new structure and then the used template (files that are responsible for the layout of the page) has to be reprogrammed.
If you are migrating from the very old Joomla! Version 1.0.x, even an intermediate step must be introduced, first a migration to Joomla! 1.5.x and then finally to Joomla! 3.8.x.
I've gained a lot of experience completing numerous migrations and can, for a fair price, bring your site up to date. The cost of migration my vary depending on which Joomla! extensions are installed.
I can offer two base price packages:
- Joomla! Migration from 1.0.x: as of 450 €
- Joomla! Migration from 1.5.x: as of 300 €
- Joomla! Upgrade from 2.5.x: as of 150 €
The extra costs depend on the extensions installed and if they have to be migrated.
Do not hesitate too long to take my service into account, because if your site is compromised, the damage is usually very large.
