What our clients say

“Crazy good!”

Converted all my joomla 1.5 files. Converted my old joomla website with 155 pages in a few minutes. Crazy good! More than spectacular! This extension is a huge time and money saver

Stefan

“Fantastic tool!”

It may be one of the more expensive extensions for Joomla but it is so well worth the money and remember it is a one-off not a recurring sub

Julius de Kempenaer

“Awesome. It is easy and it works. And developer is fantastic also.”

I used it to upgrade from J1.5 to J3. Have been wanting to do for quite a few years now but seemed to difficult before.Worth every cent. Three years of wanting to upgrade done in a few hours. Just Awesome!

Marney Macdonald

“The best migration tool around”

I have used other paid-for migration tools and this one is hands down the easiest one to use. Guides you through every possible issue. At first I thought it was a bit pricey. But then I experienced how well it performed and immediately saw the value in this component. Thanks for the great extension!

Adam

“Best component and support ever !”

Excellent value ! If you need to invest and don’t want to go crazy this is a must!

Lili

“Superb developer support”

Ran into a glitch with phoca guestbook migration and the developer went above and beyond to fix it for me. Even afterwards when a non-migration related problem came up, he tried to figure it out simply because it happened after using his plugin. Great!

Mike

“Service and Support is Exemplary”

I bought this over 1 year ago. When I finally migrated, I had some problems with my data file but Barnaby helped me migrate data. Thanks.

David Gough

“Just Do It!”

I used Migrate Me to upgrade over a dozen sites. Only my most complicated sites gave me any trouble, and the developer backed up his code with first-class service. Couldn’t recommend another migration component so long as Migrate Me exists. Migrate Me is the BEST. You get what you pay for – a great component with even better support from the developer.

Eric Darling

“Excellent tool makes it really easy to update old versions”

Almost too simple – you sort of expect more steps or problems, not just simply import the old database, start it going and done!

Jeremy Driscoll

“Migrate Me is outstanding!”

Most extensions promise much and deliver little. This extension does exactly what it says, it upgrades your old 1.5 data to Joomla 3. Before I bought I asked a thousand questions and each time the developer replied with no hesitation. This for me is amazing. It is a paid extension, but I tried some others already and they didn’t work. The time this has saved me is huge, so I say top value!!

Intellicode

“THE BEST EXTENSION I HAVE EVER USED & BARNABY IS A REAL STAR”

Awesome – this works – it’s as simple as that. When I hit a problem due to corrupted 3rd-party extension IDs, Barnaby was there to fix it. Phenomenal value for money – bought the Gold Package for future upgrades – has saved me weeks of frustration – best money I ever spent. Migrating from my Joomla 2.5.28 website straight to Jooma 3.4. I wish I had known about this extension a few weeks ago. No more loading endless backups after yet another failed attempt! The future is bright, thanks to Barnaby.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE

Version 2, June 1991

Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.  
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301, USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software–to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.

Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program or work, and a “work based on the Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is addressed as “you”.

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.

Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

NO WARRANTY

11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

one line to give the program's name and an idea of what it does.
Copyright (C) yyyy  name of author

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License
as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2
of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
GNU General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301, USA.

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details
type `show w'.  This is free software, and you are welcome
to redistribute it under certain conditions; type `show c' 
for details.

The hypothetical commands `show w’ and `show c’ should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be called something other than `show w’ and `show c’; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items–whatever suits your program.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright
interest in the program `Gnomovision'
(which makes passes at compilers) written 
by James Hacker.

signature of Ty Coon, 1 April 1989
Ty Coon, President of Vice

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General Public License instead of this License.

    Just dropping by to say this tool was amazing!! We have been putting off the upgrade for years. I did try a few other tools first, but they didn’t work so I was ready to give up, decided to try yours with the migration guarantee, and amazingly it worked! All we ended up having to do was updating the template, everything else we just installed the Joomla 3 version and it was just perfect. Thank you!! You have saved us countless hours on our site with over 1000 articles, so very happy to recommend. Top marks!

    Thanks – Brandon

    I’ve got to admit that I struggled for weeks with my site migration using other tools that advertised themselves as being simple and reliable, but turned out to have too many moving parts. Migrate Me came to the rescue, doing my migration in less than ten minutes from start to finish. There is still some design to clean up as a result of having a new template in place, but all the main content from the database showed up in good order. Thank you, thank you, thank you… now I can get back to my summer!! JP

    Just a short note to say thanks for an excellent product. I don’t normally write reviews but this one worked straight out of the box – carefully checking/repairing the database, backing up and duplicating the data. I thoroughly recommend this piece of well engineered software

    Just a note for those who are just thinking about migration – take this extension and do it! This is a great extension and support is excellent! Frankly speaking I am rather **blond** in computer stuff, but Barnaby help me in every step of the migration process and now it’s completed successfully. Thank you once more, Barnaby!

    Marcus Rose

    I had to migrate a joomla install from 1.5 to 3.x. Including users, groups, etc. pp., and by using a third party component (attachments), the article ids had to stay the same. So MigrateMe has done the most of the work for me and also was kind of intelligent by re-mapping things to the new concept (in joomla 1.5 you had sections, and in 3.x no sections anymore, but nested categories, worked well). Very good extensions, very simple usage, and for sure it is worth the money!!!

    MigrateMe worked flawlessly for me. Had been trying for 2-3 days to get redMigrator to move my data… kept failing, data didn’t transfer, would hang, etc. MigrateMe worked the first time and all data came over.

    I need to rate this 6 stars out of 5. Its really that good. My web site has a very large and complicated data base; had some difficulty getting a clean backup loaded. But thanks to some very excellent support it got done. From there the migration process was very simple. Saved me TONS of time. This product is worth every penny and then some, especially considering the top notch support.

    Excellent extension. Fully worth its money. Barnaby provided fast and competent help on a few issues. I could restore a web infected with the Eval(base64_decode) hack by upgrading to Joomla 2.5.19 without touching the old installation but for transferring documents, graphics and images. GR

    Hey Barnaby, you make the best extensions ever! So happy that I went with my gut and bought. We are very happy with our new system on Joomla 3, and just wanted to say a special thank you for the extra support… all issues on our end rather than with the software, but so glad that you are there to help. Have a great weekend! Paulson

    MigrateMe is brilliant! It really saved my life and my clients data – all K2 Articles. I had to switch from Joomla 1.5.xx to Joomla 3.3 incl. hundereds of k2 articles with pics. After a few Problems (wrong database) importing was really really easy. Took just a few minutes, selected the content I needed an voila: finished. All I had to do then was to copy the K2pics/folders via FTP to the new server. Thats all. Never been easier. Thanx a lot for this component, it saved me hours/days of time. It’s worth every single Penny!!!

    WOW! This IS the only thing you need to migrate your sites. I am a complete novice at Joomla and have been worried about migrating a rather large 1.5 site after reading other extension reviews/guides etc. I took a shot on this after all the top reviews on joomla extensions and guess what I signed up on their specifically to add another one. You make me feel like a Joomla God! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
