    I did an upgrade to 2.5 from 1.7 last week. Just followed the instructions and it worked a treat.

    Did you manage to keep the same Axerescheck template? I read on a post on here that some people experienced problems with upgrading their 1.5 to 1.7 and upwards. apparently the Axerescheck template isn't compatible?!

    You do realise this thread is over a year ago so the OP likely has since done the upgrade?

    FWIW, 1.7 to 2.5 is nothing like 1.5 to 2.5 - 1.7 is actually on the same backend as 2.5 so the upgrade is seamless, whereas 2.5 is a complete rewrite compared to 1.5 and requires a "migration" (whereby a new 2.5 site will be created from scratch and articles, data, modules etc will be copied over and installed individually).

    I used jupgrade for our site and it took about a week to get it to upgrade, then a further couple of days to get it tweaked, templates fixed, modules updated etc.
