Joomla org continously upgrades it's versions of Joomla, within a stream it is relatively easy to ensure a site is kept current and to improve it's security. As long as the core code of Joomla has not been modified then simply adding the latest files is all that is required.

However if upgrading between streams of Joomla is required  ( eg. 1.5.XX to 2.5 or 3.2) then:

  • Upgrading the database
  • Modification of the template
  • Updating of 3rd party addons

are all required and the upgrade task can be quite complex. At NZJoomla we have considerable experience in upgrading Joomla sites and have undertaken many a site upgrade. These upgrades provide numerous benefits to your site:

  • more secure Joomla web sites

Security Risk?

If your current Joomla install is version 1.5.26 or below - it is out of date and it's security is at risk - YOU SHOULD NOT use it as part of your business tools.

Joomla have now also stopped support for 2.5.X series and hence it's time to upgrade your site if you are running this stream of software on your web site.

If you have a series 3.X version of Joomla running your site, you must ensure it is updated to Joomla 3.9.28 at a minimum as lower levels of Joomla 3.X have a security risks.

Current version of Joomla 3.9.28 / 3.10.2 or 4.0.3

Note: Joomla 3.10 and 4.x were released 17/8/2021 - however these required careful analysis of your web site before upgrading.
3.10.2 - being a stepping stone to Joomla series 4.
Joomla 3.X will be support until September 2023.

Joomla 4 is recommended for new sites where posssible.

As these are a migration not just a straight upgrade.
