New: Migration Tool for Ad Agency to Joomla 2.5

Easily migrate your Ad Agency data from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5

Add Vertical & Horizontal Ads

If you think that migrating your site to Joomla 2.5 is hard and complicated… you’re right. So we’ve tried to make it easier, at least when it comes to moving your Joomla extensions’ data to the Joomla 2.5 platform.

As a user of iJoomla Ad Agency, you’ve probably accumulated a significant amount of data in your on your Joomla 1.5 site.Our new Ad Agency migration tool allows you move most of that data easily. Instead of messing with databases and spending lots of time and resources testing and checking and correcting, this tool gets everything done in just thirty seconds!

Which data will be migrated:

  • Zones
  • Advertisers
  • Campaigns
  • Ads
  • Orders
  • 1000 last visits

What is not migrated:

  • Banner files: You'll have to download this directory /images/stories/ad_agency/ from the Joomla 1.5 site and upload them via FTP to the same location on the Joomla 2.5 site
  • Any records beyond the last 1000: The Ad Agency database is too large for migration because each visit generates a record. That means the stats on the Joomla 2.5 site will not be complete and will include only the last 1000 records (visits).

How It Works

  • For a limited time, this migration tool is only $77, this will save you hours of work or having to hire an expensive programmer to do this for you. Buy it here.
