Upgrading Joomla 1.6 to Joomla 1.7

Document Meta

  • Level: Beginner

Here is a quick little video on how to update Joomla 1.6.x to Joomla 1.7.

The process takes a few minutes to download the new version from the website so please be patient.

It is also worth noting that the fOpen php function needs to be enabled on your web server in order for it to download the xml update files from the servers. If fOpen is turned off for what ever reason you will not be able to do the simple one click upgrade for Joomla.
