Joomla Upgrades and Migrations

Why Upgrade?

One of the most important things for any website, whether it is Joomla-based or not, is keeping its software up-to-date.  

Just like with computer operating systems, there are frequent updates to Joomla and its extensions to address bugs and security issues as well as to introduce new features. By ensuring that your site has the latest versions of each of these then your site will not only be more secure but also have access to all the latest extensions and functionality.

Although most sites should continue to function even if they aren't up-to-date, there is a far greater risk of being hacked as well as an increased likelihood of errors and other bugs negatively impacting the site.

What's included in the migration process?

Regardless of your version, when we are migrating your site, wherever possible, we will take a copy of your site and use that to migrate everything, rather than working on your live site (this isn't always possible, however, but we'd let you know if that's the case).  This ensures that your site has little or no downtime.  The migration process involves:

Joomla Core

We migrate the core Joomla system to the required version - this includes users, articles, modules, menus  and more.

Extensions

We will either migrate or replace each extension installed on your site with the latest version or a suitable equivalent.

Site Template

We will migrate your template to its newest version (if there is one) or, alternatively, recreate it using a responsive template framework.

Verification

Once everything has been migrated we then often need to go back through your site and check that everything is working as it should.  

How much does it cost?

That all depends on your site ...

The cost will vary depending on exactly what extensions require migration as well as what template you have in use however we are happy to provide a no-obligation estimate upon request. 

Is this only available to Arcas clients?

Definitely not!

We are happy to consider any Joomla-based website for migration, all we will need is the information in relation to what extensions need migrating as well as what template your site uses.

So if you are interested in getting a migration done then let us know and we'll do a quick assessment of your site completely free of charge to confirm the costs involved.
