Upgrading Joomla 1.0 to Joostina 1.2 PDF Print
(0 votes)

This procedure describes the process for upgrading your Joomla 1.0 site to Joostina 1.2. The reason we are upgarding to Joostina 1.2 is threefold, firstly Joostina 1.2 is the first version of Joostina that is language independent. Secondly, Joostina 1.3 has a language translation that is 85% complete. Thirdly, Joostina 1.3 is not yet ready for English language usage and the upgrade process for English speaking users has not yet been tested, at least not by me...

The upgrade process is reasonably straightforward though not for the faint-hearted as it does require some database changes, some copying of core files and some subsequent configuration. Be aware that if you have already customised your 1.0 site then you will have to reapply those customisations to the Joostina code.

The components are: as follows

1. Converter component you install it using Joomla component installer and run it ONCE to extend the database tables as required.

2. English.php file later version to replace the one supplied with the installation.FTP it into the languages folder.

3. Joostina 1.2 stable zipfile containing full installation. Copy the folders/files to the target server overwriting/replacing the existing files.

4. Various files hacked to fix bugs/complete English translations. Copy these in place as per the zipfile readme.txt.

Click on the above linked text to be taken to the appropriate download page.

Remaining tasks to be done subsequent to the above:

A. Log in via the admin back end and select the default language - click on the following menu option:

      o  Сайт (site)
      o  Языковые пакеты (language manager)
      o  Select language 'English' and click Показать (default)

Voila! you have an English back end.

B. Disable the Joomla 1.0.15 quickicons admin module to remove the duplicated icons on the control panel.

C. Edit the new administrator icon descriptions into English using new Joostina edit menu functionality.
