Now that 1.6 and 1.7 are deprecated and 2.5 is here, should the title of this page be changed? Perhaps it would be better to leave this one in place and create a new article with the title of Migrating from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5.

Yes. Hmm. I got the redirect the wrong way round. I'll fix it when I get back from work. Chris Davenport 23:59, 25 January 2012 (CST)
Hmm, indeed. When I wrote the question above, there were no redirects in place. Now I can't find the original article. It looks like there's a loop somewhere, Chris.

Please add PHP check to the update script. If version==4, then prompt "Please upgrade your PHP"
Otherwise the error message is "Fatal error: Only variables can be passed by reference in /var/www/html/administrator/components/com_jupgrade/views/cpanel/view.html.php on line 35"

you might want to add two requirements:
Without mootools the installation process got stuck (from 1.5.2), using a custom made template, too. --Marek 17:27, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I added the install the mootools plugin section (without screenshots) --Weissollo 22:09, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
I added a section that describes how to manually upgrade joomla. If anyone has anything to add to it, please feel free.
Remove step 7. under Before you get started? as its now January 2012, and there is no reason to not migrate to 2.5 soon, as the 1.5 EOL is getting closer.
