Joomla Migration

Migrate your Joomla 3.x system to Joomla 4.x


Ready to switch to Joomla 4 ? You want to try the latest and greatest features, but don't want to risk any crashes, downtime, or "white screen of death" ?

Welcome to MigrateMe 4.

This extension will create an exact version of your Joomla 3.x site ... but with a Joomla 4.x core, in a separate development environment.

This means you can test the new Joomla 4 system, confirm it actually works well, and check how nicely (or not) it plays with your third party extensions, custom template, plugins and so forth.

It's a one-click solution that will:

  • Check your existing system, and ensure you're at a good starting point (must be Joomla 3.x or later)
  • Apply any missing J3 updates, to ensure your database structure and filesystem are fully up to date
  • Optimise and repair any database issues
  • Create a standalone development environment - so you can safely test the new system
  • Migrate your old data, files, folders, third party extensions
  • Flawlessly set up your new J4 system with the correct users and access
  • Allows 'safe mode' which provides a working Joomla 4 environment - even if your third party extensions normally cause a J4 crash
  • Allow you to fully test the new environment, so you can safely apply any third party updates without any risk to your live system
  • Allow you to deploy the new environment to the live - this also backs up your old system so you can roll back if needed

What this solution won't do:

MigrateMe 4 is great, but it can't update your third party extensions for you. After migration, you'll need to download the latest Joomla 4 version for each extension from the Joomla Extensions Database, and install on the new J4 environment.

MigrateMe 4 also can't automatically update any third party templates, or custom code - you'll need to update, or ask your developer / distributor for the latest Joomla 4 versions

Get Joomla 4 in 90 seconds

A standard Joomla 3.x system takes around 90 seconds to completely migrate to Joomla 4.

And in that time, MigrateMe 4 will copy all your existing files, duplicate your database, install Joomla 3, update your Admin area, save all your articles and data and switch you to the new Joomla 4 Admin interface.

Watch the tutorial to see just how easy the upgrade is!

Installation and usage instructions
1 - Install MigrateMe 4 to your Joomla! 3.x system
2 - Click the Upgrade button.
3 - Wait for the process to complete.
4 - Log into Joomla 4 and update 3rd party extensions.
5 - If everything is working well, click Go Live.
6 - Enjoy Joomla!

Brilliant product!

Functionality
Works as described. I had to turn on safe mode, but that took care of any issues in the migration.
Ease of use
Simple install, and logical workflow.
Just install the extension like any other, click on it, set up safe mode if required, and GO.
Support
Barnaby was quick to answer my question about an error, which was resolved by turning on safe mode.
Documentation
The only thing I would add is a note about the availability of safe mode on the main page of the component. It is under "configuration".
Value for money
Very fair price, especially if you have to migrate multiple sites.
I used this to: Migrating personal and client sites from J3.x to J4.
Doing the migration of the rest of my sites will be much quicker than trying to do them manually.
