Are you and your Joomla website ready to upgrade to Joomla 4 ?

Pre upgrade checklist:

  • Have you checked your server specification and Joomla 4's minimum system requirements?
  • Does  your server/hosting account meet the minimum requirements?
  • Will all your 3rd party extensions work with Joomla 4?
  • Is there a Joomla 4 compatible version for your 3rd party extensions?
  • Will your template(s) work with Joomla 4, or will it need to be upgraded or replaced?
  • Is there an upgraded version of your template available?
  • What are your options if you cannot upgrade your website to Joomla 4?

Before upgrading we recomment that you carryout an audit of your website and carryout all the upgrade work on a copy of your website, before attempting to upgrade your live website.

If you are unsure of where to start, we are offering a Joomla 4 pre-upgrade audit service.

What included in our Joomla 4 pre-upgrade audit:

  • Check which version of Joomla and 3rd party extensions are installed
  • Check your Joomla website and extensions have been correctly installed and configured
  • Review your extensions and check that there is a Joomla 4 compatible version
  • Review your template and test it with Joomla 4 or investigate if there is a Joomla 4 compatible upgrade available
  • Review your hosting environment and check that it meets the minimum server requirements for Joomla 4
  • Review your Joomla configuration is correct
  • Check your Joomla website and extensions have been correctly installed and configured
  • Scan your website files for potentially malicious code
  • Check if all the extensions you have installed used/required?
  • Check against the extension known vulnerabilities list
  • Optional extra - proof of concept upgrade

Cost of Joomla 4 pre-upgrade basic audit is £195.00 and if you would also like us to carry out a proof of concept upgrade this can be done for an additional £125.00

Proof of concept upgrade is where we take a copy of your website and carry out an upgrade of Joomla, 3rd party extensions and template to make sure everything is compatible and working correctly.
