Migrate Joomla 1.5 - 2.5 Error (JomSocial Version: 2.6.2 - 126.96.36.199)
I recently did a migration of my site from Joomla 1.5 - Joomla 2.5. (JomSocial 2.62 - 188.8.131.52)... I know, I skipped a few versions... bad JomSocial upgrade documentation. And now the site is live and there's a few errors, JomSocial support refuses to assist.
When I first did the migration, there was a big error, I fixed it by doing the following:
4. I edited mySQL export file and replaced all prefixes by changing all xxx_community to yyy_community, being xxx_ the j1.5 prefix and yyy_ the j2.5 prefix and saved it.
5. I went again to phpAdmin, j2.5 DB, and delete all records from the -community- tables by selecting all them and then clicking the "empty" option in the lower part, where it says " for all teh record selected do: empty ". This deletes all records from the tables BUT KEEPS INTACT THE STRUCTURE, which is what was causing the problems in the first place.
6. In phpAdmin select your j2.5 DB and import the j1.5 records from the SQL file where you replaced the prefix (step 4),
Now everything works, but there's a few glitches. Some users can't post status updates. Some users are getting 500 errors trying to visit groups. Videos don't play. Notification, friend request, email icons don't display. Some users data is missing and a few other small things. All seems to be database issues.
