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 (126.96.36.199), 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
Note to my visitors: I have not rename my directory since google has referenced it heavily (14700 urls known)
