Top Ten Mistakes for Joomla Upgrades

Top Ten Mistakes for Joomla Upgrades

We have easily done over 50 Joomla upgrades over the last year.  Over that time, we have developed a pretty good checklist of common problems and how to migrate most 3rd party extensions.  However, those lessons were learned after knocking our heads against the wall plenty.  

 

In an effort to save you some of that headache, here are the Top Ten Mistakes for Joomla Upgrades we have compiled.  Feel free to leave comments with specific questions, as we tried to pick items that would apply to everyone.

Fixing Magic Quotes for Joomla 3.x

Fixing Magic Quotes for Joomla 3.x

If you have ever installed a new Joomla 3.x website or moved a Joomla site from one server to another, you may have gotten the error for needing to disable Magic Quotes.  This can seem easier said than done depending on your hosting company.

Then go to "PHP Scripting"

Set "Select Default PHP Version" to PHP 5.3
