How can I upgrade my site to Joomla 4.1.2?

If your site is a Joomla 4.0.x installation

Then it’s a normal update, backup and update as you would with any Joomla update via the internal updater.

If your site is a Joomla 3.x installation

Don’t stress, you’re not alone, we are guiding you for the mini-migration.

The first step will be to update your site to the latest Joomla 3.10. We invite you to read Joomla 3.10 The Pre-update Checker. The 3.10 update checker will tell you which extensions are compatible with Joomla 4 (great, isn’t it?). 

And then, you just have to follow our step by step tutorials. You can find them on our official documentation at https://docs.joomla.org/Why_Migrate. Planning is the most important part of the mini-migration process. See https://docs.joomla.org/Planning_for_Mini-Migration_-_Joomla_3.10.x_to_4.x to start with. At the bottom of that doc, you can then proceed to the step by step for mini-migration from 3.10.x  to 4.x. and specifically start with planning at (you’ll find plenty of information and tutorial about Joomla 4 on JDocs).

Note: we advise you to first test the migration on a copy of your production site.

Migrate now?

You may also wonder if you have to migrate now? Ideally, you would start the planning of the migration now so that you can migrate once your template and extensions are ready. Use this as an opportunity to remove old and outdated extensions. More can be done with the core, safely and efficiently, so if an extension has not been migrated, see if you really need it..

Keep in mind that Joomla 3.10 is supported for another 1.5 years, so there is no pressure to migrate now, but you shouldn’t wait too long and be ready before 3.10 ends its support in August 2023.

You can read articles about the process of mini migration and Joomla 4.1 in the Joomla Community Magazine.

Who is Joomla! For?

Do you need to make a website? For personal use, your work, a charity, not for profit. Perhaps a university, local government, then Joomla is for you.

A web agency needs a well-supported framework that can grow as your clients' needs grow. Then Joomla is for you.

Written by volunteers from every sector, it's used all over the internet for all kinds of projects: from blogs and intranets to national government sites. From small shops to world-leading brand sites, Joomla is capable of growing to fit your needs.

Joomla’s power comes from its ever-evolving code base, keeping up with best practices, but also from its large ecosystem of developers who see opportunities in the market and fill those gaps with good software designed to meet real-world needs.

Joomla 4.1.2 is the latest in a world-class CMS that allows you to start your website knowing it can grow with your needs and scale with your customers.

All this and Joomla 4 is free to use and open-source software.

What are you waiting for? Install today and grow your future.
