Migrating a 1.0 site to 1.5
Has anyone migrated their existing 1.x site to 1.5?
Instructions now up on the wiki - go there for details
If so, were there any issues beyond what you find in the guides?

that's what I did with the edugeek package but due to changes I needed to change and mod all the templates and some of the plugins components and modules are diffrent versions as standard version wont work. The way I did it was the export the data into new database but you need to know what tables to import took me 4 weeks to sort it out but got it down to a tee now.

Ok - I'm struggling with this one -I've tried about 4 times now
Basically, I want to migrate the 1.0 site I created week before to 1.5 as I'll be using 1.5 for all future sites
(Obviously, a time machine would be handy here )
I've copied my live site onto my local setup and that move seems to be OK.
So I then decided to create a new 1.5 site using EGJP 1.5.2 and use mtwMigrator to copy the content across.
I thought this would be best as I'd be using all the EGJP 1.5 setup and just using the actual content from the old site.
Having ended up with basically a site with both real and pre-installed content/menus - I tried deleting stuff from the 1.5.2 site before the migration.
I either end up with too much (e.g 2 x menu entries) or too little (articles OK but no section/category assigned to them) -I can't seem to find the happ medium.
Off to try some more variations

there is no easy way as all the toys we use in joomla 1.5 and 1 use diffrent versions the best way is to copy sql file and insert the content into the new 1.5 version and then set it up again. I have put a note at download saying about migrating as it is not easy and I do it totally manually now via stripping the sql file down.
