Not a simple task and seems to carry some risk, have you read the Joomla forums Joomla forums, (http://forum.joomla.org/viewforum.php?f=625&sid=13aea57bcba95c8f6f80dc90101e3150) There is no straight forward upgrade path.

hi
are you wanting to just upgrade an exisiting installation or re-install?

i have tried several diferent ways and wasn't sucessfull and landed up having to re-build several sites.
i even went the route, of upgrading 1.5 to 1.6 to 1.7, but as soon as i went to 2.0 the wheels all fell off and i lost everything.
I tried the data backup route of 1.5 but when i did a restore on 2.5 it screwed up the whole installation.

2.5 will only work on SME 8 and works well, i have changed most of my servers and web sites, and am happy i made the change.

my 5 cents

thanks john

I understand you have successfully installed joomla 2.5 on SME 8?

I've been using 1.5 on SME 7 for years, and now I have to upgrade. I've run into several problems with installing contribs, updates, etc. It all appears to be related to a permissions issue. Do you recall similar issues? I realize this is an older post, but just thought I'd run it by you, desparate for a eureka of some sort.

Thanks,
Jim

Yes, Joomla 2.5 runs fine on SME 8 and will not run on SME 7x due to a to old MySQL package. If you want to run on SME 7x you need to upgrade MySQL which is not a simple and secure task as I understand it.
