I have successfuly migrated my homepage from Mambo CMS to Joomla CMS.

Joomla! is a production of Open Source Matters, the same team that brought you the award winning Mambo Content Management System.  OSM has taken their final stable version of Mambo (4.5.2.3), given it a spring clean and named it Joomla! 1.0 In addition, several small features that were going to be released in Joomla! 1.1 have been brought forward and included in this release.

I have decide to trust and follow the previous core of Mambo developer in they statement: "open source matters".
For some of You which are prepared to do the same, here is what I have done:
  • First read instructions at Migrating to Joomla! from Mambo
  • I Have done a backup locally of my Mambo directory just in case of...
  • I have made a copy of my Mambo directory on the server into a new directory joomla, open configuration.php and change the path
  • then I have copied the joomla 1.0.1 content into the joomla server directory, do not overwrite configuration and do not copy installation directory
Make some test to see if everything is working properly, if Yes do the same in your production directory of mambo.
Note to my visitors: I have not rename my directory since google has referenced it heavily (14700 urls known)

Forums update to …… PHBB3
I decide to migrate to PHBB and went away from SMF! Don’t understand it wrongly, SMF was great for me in the last 3 years: stable, easy to use and not much targeted by hackers ;-) &160; &160; I leave SMF mainly as: There is no bridge available in Joomla! (bridge is discontinued and considered unsafe) I would like to unify login across all my sub domains in the near future. The idea is to let you log yourself only …
