I was wondering why the Open Source library installs joomla 1.7.3 vs some version of 2.5. My assumption is that this is a security risk or at least not the most stable version of the product. This is not supported any longer by joomla.

Are there plans to get more current?

I do not have a timeframe for when the Joomla install in the Open Source Library will be updated. You can download Joomla 2.5 or 3.0 from joomla.org and install them manually if you wish. There is no direct upgrade path between Joomla 1.x, 2.x and 3.x.

I have experience upgrading joomla. I have the three ways outlined on the joomla.org website and it breaks the site that I have set up. From tech support I got a message that they don't support joomla but if I want I can pay to get support. Any other host that I have used (godaddy, verio, bluehost etc) I can do an upgrade via one of the three methods that joomla.org outlines and it works fine. What is up with that?

Without a specific error message you may be getting, I wouldn't be able to make any suggestions.

I am having trouble installing the latest version of 2.5 and also 3.0. Neither one will work. It either hangs and does nothing, gives me a "invalid token" error, or can not find the database even though I try using "localhost", the IP address and the alias.. none of it works, if I can even get that far, most of the time the installation just hangs.

The automatic installation works but that version is no longer supported as it's 2 full versions behind at this point...I tried doing the upgrade inside 1.7.3, and I get a 500 Internal Server Error after about 2 minutes. Then it tells me to make sure my file permissions are correct.

I would like to work with this, but can't see starting work inside a program that's extremely outdated. I would like to use 2.5 or 3.0 to start.

Help please!!
