I was wondering if there's any way to upgrade my Joomla 2.5 website, with VM2 and a template for Joomla 2.5, to Joomla 3. Downloading afterwards the same template and some other plugins and components for that version...

  • You won't lose any data, however be sure to take a backup of your current 2.5 site before starting the update

  • What about if I use a Joomla 2.5 template on Joomla 3...?

  • A few errors will most likely be thrown which could be fixed, but it might be easier to download the Joomla 3.x compatible version of your template
