Migration from JG 1.5.7 to JG 2

Article Index

Step 6: Check

If the migration ends with a message of success all categories, images, comments, name tags, votes, favourites and many parts of the configuration were transfered successfully.

After creating a menu item for the gallery in menu manager of Joomla! should see the gallery in frontend like before.

Finally, please start a check in migration manager to ensure that actually everything is alright.

Possibly you have to adjust some settings in configuration manager because there couldn't be migrated all settings for technical reasons (especially the part of the upload permissions and things like that because this is handled via the ACL of Joomla! now).

In the case there there were errors during the migration please download the log file 'migration.mvc2acl.php' from the log directory of Joomla!. Usually, this is the folder 'logs' in the root directory of Joomla!.
If you migrated your Joomla! with the help of component jUpgrade possibly the log directory of the old Joomla! installation is still used for the new one. You may check that in the global configuration.

Please have a precise look at the log file. If only single images weren't transfered you probably are able to do that manually now. If there were serious errors (e.g. a category could not be created) please import your backup and check whether there is alright in the old Joomla! installation afore trying again.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask the in the board 'Migration' of our forum.
