Moving from 1.4.x to 2.0

Moving data and settings from ABPro 1.4.x to 2.0


ABPro 1.4.x to ABPro 2.0 (Joomla 1.5)

Install ABPro 2.0 on your Joomla 1.5 site - ABPro 2.0 uses different tables and files than 1.4.x so they can co-exist in the same Joomla instance.

ABPro 2.0 (J1.5) has an Import from 1.4.x button on the backup/restore screen. This import changes tables as required for ABPro 2.0 (adding new fields, removing some and changing most primary key names)

How easy is that ;-)



ABPro 1.4.x to ABPro 2.0 (Joomla 2.5)

ABPro 1.4.x cannot be installed on Joomla 2.5 so moving from 1.4.x to 2.0 under Joomla 2.5 is a two step process.
Step 1
Install ABPro 2.0 for Joomla 1.5 and migrate you settings as described above.
Step 2
Install ABPro 2.0 for Joomla 2.5 on your Joomla 2.5 site.
Use phpMyAdmin (or some other MySQL database tool) to:
- export your ABPro 2 tables from Joomla 1.5
- import the exported data into Joomla 2.5
