    Have many people upgraded from 1.5 - from what I read here there was a reluctance to take the plunge?

    I am looking at upgrading my Demo Joomla 1.5 site to 1.7 and seeing what happens.

    Did you find anything to look out for? I am looking to upgrading to 1.7 soon(ish) and wondered if there is anything I need to be aware of?

    When I tried this on a practice site at home the upgrade worked perfectly, but when I tried the upgrade on a snapshot of our virtual webserver from 1.5.23 (it has to be this version, nothing earlier, such as 1.5.1, will work) to 1.7 using jupgrade it failed. After several attempts I gave up and now I'm developing a new school website in parallel with the old.

    Make a complete backup of your site (all pages, databases, file structure, the works). Upgrade was smooth for me, but some experienced issues.

    I upgraded from 1.5.1 to 1.6.3 then 1.7

    I would love to take the Edugeej 1.5 template and get it upgraded to 1.7. I tried the other week but didn't have a clue what I was doing even though I followed a guide. :-) LOL.

    I've got a test 1.7 installed in the school space and am playing. :-)
