Migrate RSBlog! from Joomla! 2.5 to 3.x

RSBlog! does not offer a feature specialized in migrating the component's data by export (or otherwise). The only option to migrate RSBlog! from a Joomla! 2.5 website to Joomla! 3.x remains to directly transfer its database tables:

  • dbprefix_rsblog_categories
  • dbprefix_rsblog_groups
  • dbprefix_rsblog_moderation
  • dbprefix_rsblog_posts
  • dbprefix_rsblog_posts_categories
  • dbprefix_rsblog_posts_tags
  • dbprefix_rsblog_rating
  • dbprefix_rsblog_send_trackbacks
  • dbprefix_rsblog_subscriptions
  • dbprefix_rsblog_tags
  • dbprefix_rsblog_temp
  • dbprefix_rsblog_trackbacks
You also need to:
  • make sure that you are using the latest version of the component available for Joomla! 2.5 & 3.x, on both installations.
  • create a backup of your Joomla! 2.5 database tables through a database management application (for example phpMyAdmin)
  • restore the backed up database tables in your 3.x database

Since the relations between authors and their posts are based on the user's ID, in order for the migration to be correct you will need to make sure that the users from your Joomla! 3.x installation have the same IDs as in your 2.5 installation. The best approach would be to also migrate the dbprefix_users table. A list of components that can be used to migrate users can be found here.

Migrating from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5

This is done in the same manner as described above, with the only difference being that you need to first update RSBlog! on the Joomla! 1.5 website to the latest revision available for Joomla! 1.5 - rev. 9.
