This is the fourth article in a series of Joomla component migration instructions. Published so far are:
Before starting the migration:
- upgrade the source website to the latest available version of the component
- backup the source and target websites
Migrate core functions with JUpgrade or SP Upgrade or similar so that user ids are preserved.
Copy the media/com_acymailing folder from your J1.5 website to your J1.6 website.
Export the Joomla 1.5 AcyMailing tables using phpMyAdmin with the "Quick" and "SQL" options (Note: you can multiple select tables and export them as one file).
If necessary, amend table prefixes by searching and replacing all of the old prefixes e.g. jos_ to j25_ inside the file(s).
Import the Joomla 1.5 Acymailing databases into Joomla 2.5.
Install the latest version of AcyMailing on the Joomla 2.5 website.
If required, update image locations in templates from images/stories to /images
You may also need to update the "View Online" links in your templates.
