Instalación

  1. Install the plugin in the Admin => Plugins menu => Add New => Upload => Select the zip file => Install Now
  2. Activate the plugin in the Admin => Plugins menu
  3. Run the importer in Tools > Import > Joomla (FG)
  4. Configure the plugin settings. You can find the Joomla database parameters in the Joomla file configuration.php
    Hostname = $host
    Port = 3306 (standard MySQL port)

FAQ

I get the message: «[fg-joomla-to-wordpress] Couldn’t connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database. SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user ‘xxx’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)»

  • First verify your login and password to the Joomla database.
    If Joomla and WordPress are not installed on the same host:
  • If you use CPanel on the Joomla server, a solution is to allow a remote MySQL connection.
    • go into the Cpanel of the Joomla server
    • go down to Database section and click «Remote MySQL»
    • There you can add an access host (WordPress host). Enter the access host as the SOME-WEBSITE-DOMAIN-OR-IP-ADDRESS and click add host.
  • Another solution is to copy the Joomla database on the WordPress database:
    • export the Joomla database to a SQL file (with phpMyAdmin for example)
    • import this SQL file on the same database as WordPress
    • run the migration by using WordPress database credentials (host, user, password, database) instead of the Joomla ones in the plugin settings.

I get this error when testing the connection: «SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused» or «SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory»

  • This error happens when the host is set like localhost:/tmp/mysql5d.sock
    Instead, you must set the host to be localhost;unix_socket=/tmp/mysql5d.sock

The migration stops and I get the message: «Fatal error: Allowed memory size of XXXXXX bytes exhausted» or I get the message: “Internal server error»

  • First, deactivate all the WordPress plugins except the ones used for the migration
  • Puedes ejecutar la migración otra vez. Continuará donde fue parada.
  • You can add: define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M'); in your wp-config.php file to increase the memory allowed by WordPress
  • You can also increase the memory limit in php.ini if you have write access to this file (ie: memory_limit = 1G). See the increase memory limit procedure.

Me sale una pantalla en blanco y la importación parece haberse parado

  • Lo mismo que arriba

Los elementos multimedia no se han importado

  • Check the URL field that you filled in the plugin settings. It must be your Joomla home page URL and must start with http://

The media are not imported and I get the error message: «Warning: copy() [function.copy]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration»

  • The PHP directive «Allow URL fopen» must be turned on in php.ini to copy the medias. If your remote host doesn’t allow this directive, you will have to do the migration on localhost.

No se ha importado nada

  • Comprueba tu versión de Joomla. La base de datos de Joomla 1.0 tiene una estructura diferente de otras versiones de Joomla. La importación de la base de datos de Joomla 1.0 es una característica de la versión Premium.

All the posts are not migrated. Why ?

  • Las entradas en la papelera no son migrados. Pero las entradas no publicadas y los archivados son migradas como borradores.
  • Some users reported that the Zend Framework causes an incomplete import. So, if all the data is not migrated, consider deactivating the Zend Framework during the migration.

I get the message: «Fatal error: Class ‘PDO’ not found»

  • PDO and PDO_MySQL libraries are needed. You must enable them in php.ini on the WordPress host.
    Or on Ubuntu:
    sudo php5enmod pdo
    sudo service apache2 reload

I get this error: PHP Fatal error: Undefined class constant ‘MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND’

  • Debes tener activado PDO_MySQL en el fichero php.ini en el servidor WordPress. Eso significa descomentar la línea extension=pdo_mysql.so en el fichero php.ini

Does the migration process modify the Joomla site it migrates from?

  • No, sólo lee la base de datos de Joomla.

I get this error: Erreur !: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1193] Unknown system variable ‘NAMES’

  • It comes from MySQL 4.0. It will work if you move your database to MySQL 5.0 before running the migration.

I get this error «Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM»

  • Debes utilizar como mínimo PHP 5.3 en tu sitio WordPress.

I get this error: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2054] The server requested authentication method unknown to the client

  • It is a compatibility issue with your version of MySQL.
    You can read this post to fix it: http://forumsarchive.laravel.io/viewtopic.php?id=8667

None image get transferred into the WordPress uploads folder. I’m using Xampp on Windows.

  • Xampps coloca la carpeta htdocs en la carpeta de aplicaciones, que está protegida. Necesitas mover la carpeta htdocs a una carpeta en la que se pueda escribir.

How to import content from one section as posts and another section as pages?

  • You can use the Convert Post Types plugin after the migration.

¿Necesito mantener el plugin activado después de la migración?

  • No, you can deactivate or even uninstall the plugin after the migration (for the free version only).

Is there a log file to show the information from the import?

  • Yes since version 1.45.0. First you must put these lines in wp-config.php:
    define(‘WP_DEBUG’, true);
    define(‘WP_DEBUG_LOG’, true);
    And the messages will be logged to wp-content/debug.log.

How does the plugin handle Weblinks?

  • The plugin imports the Joomla web links to WordPress links managed by the Link Manager plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/link-manager/

Mi pantalla de cuelga porque hay gran cantidad de errores en la ventana de log

  • Puedes parar el auto refresco del log deseleccionado la casilla de auto-refresco del log

We ve had to migrate a HUGE site with tens of thousands posts and other contents. We used FG plugin, and 3 addons, and it all went as well as it could! I ve been on touch with Frederic (plugin dev) and he was always on point and helped a lot! As a result - we have saved weeks if not months with these plugins! BRAVO! Thanks a lot!

My Joomla based website consists of more than 10,000 pages, cross references, tags etc. Without having advanced knowledge in Wordpress, this plugin came beyond my expectations. Beside saving weeks or days, it works smoothly. They even helped me out when facing the problem of misconfigured modification of internal links. They proposed WP Migrate DB to replace all links. Cudos for this as well. It is more than worthwile to carefully check all options before starting to import.

After trying my self for a multiple times and not getting it to work like I hoped, I reached out to the support that helped me. It took a couple of days, but it wasn't an easy fix either. Really happy to have gotten that help.

We've used FG software for years for various products. It's really saved hours and hours worth of work. Whenever we run into problem, their team is quick to help or solve a bug, or even deliver a new feature. Thank you!

Frederic has put a ton of great work and effort into building great plugins. The paid version is worth way more than the asking price. I have used multiple migration plugins of his for different platforms and it makes transition to WordPress so much easier. Support is also phenomenal. I've rarely needed support, but when I do, they're fast to respond with an easy solution.
