In most cases you are able to update it from within Joomla itself. If your 2.5 install is updated to the latest version of 2.5, (I believe it's 2.5.27) there will be an option to update to 3.3.6 just like where you'd regularly find your update option.

Hope that's what you were looking for.

EDIT: This is indeed an option, but to achieve this, you will have to set something in the Joomla! update component. Simply go to your joomla update component by selecting it in the backend. There, in the upper right corner, click on options. Set the update server to Short term and the update should be visisble

  • Now, I have been create my site by joomla for 6 months and I have been updated to the version of 2.5.28 yet.How do i do ? when my joomla version is 2.5.28. it is not 2.5.27. And i just follow your advice McBurgerKong but i only see No updates available . How do i do ? Could you please tell me with this issue ? Thank you.
