Joomla offers upgrades within the main versions like 2.5.x to 2.5.x or 3.x.x to 3.x.x . This is called Joomla Upgrades or Joomla Updates , but not the Joomla Migration, like 1.5.x to 2.5.x or 1.5.x to 3.x.x . So, here are few ways, you can always update your Joomla website to the latest version, without spending a dime on any developer or freelancer. 


  1. Before you start anything, make sure, you have the complete website backup. You may use Akeeba Backup to handle this process.
  2. Goto Extension Manager > Find Updates . It should list the Joomla Updated version . Simply select it and click on INSTALL on the top right.
  3. Or.. Goto Joomla website and find the update packages on the download page. Unzip it on your computer and login to your main website from any FTP Manager. Select all files, which you just downloaded and click on UPLOAD. If it asks for over-write, then simply click YES.
