Thanks for your excellent migration tool which I started using today. It looks more complicated than it is. Might I suggest some clearer instructions will help?! Maybe like this:
This PHP script assumes you have used the jUpgrade or SP Upgrade tool or similar to migrate from 1.5 to 2.5 to preserve user ids.
First update JEvents on source and target websites to the latest JEvents version, and back up both websites to be safe!
Download the script from http://www.jevents.net/downloads/catego ... -migration and unzip.
In phpMyAdmin or similar, remove all the Joomla 2.5 jevents tables:
Install the managed people, managed locations and any other jevents club addons (if you are using them) on your Joomla 2.5 site.
Edit the upgradejevents.php file and change line 11 to reflect the relative path of the destination website:
- e.g. if source is http://www.websitename.com and destination is http://www.websitename.com/j25, amend line 11 to: define("NEWSITEPATH", "j25");
e.g. if source is http://www.websitename.com/j15 and destination is http://www.websitename.com, amend line 11 to: define("NEWSITEPATH", "..");
Log in to the backend of Joomla 2.5 as a Super Admin.
Run the script by calling it in your browser e.g. http://www.j15site.com/upgradejevents.php.
All being well the script will migrate the data, creating categories automatically with default permissions and show:
- migrated categories
migrated main tables
updated category references
reset access levels
migrated user permissions
You may need to set up JEvents configuration manually on the destination website as the script does not migrate configuration settings.
