    Can I recommend to everyone that you install JoomlaPack (if you haven't got it already) and use it to perform a full site backup and download the backup BEFORE you upload the upgrade

    We don't want any tears later

    PS On the latest version, I had to change the default method of using AJAX to Javascript but YMMV

    Joomla Update manager

    Just an FYI, I'm running Joomla 1.5.9 with the Edugeek Joomla 1.5 Package and figured I should upgrade to latest stable Joomla release, 1.5.14.

    I installed Joomlapack and backed up the site, downloaded it and installed Joomla Update Manager. This extension is awesome. Basically I answered 3 questions and my site was updated.

    This extension will be part of the upcoming Joomla 1.6.

    Just to show I am a Joomla noob, would a normal backup of the server not backup Joomla or is JoomlaPack if you just want an instant backup? Also the Update Manager, is it this one? That sounds like a jolly good idea.

    Joomla Update Manager

    I'm actually pretty new at Joomla too! I'm not sure what the difference between backing up the entire server versus Joomlapack way of doing things. I know that Joomlapack will backup the site and all the settings that go with it. It should be smaller in size and easier to restore your site from this.

    That is the correct link, that was my first post so I couldn't include the link.
