Free consult: Joomla 4 migration in 14 easy steps

The migration from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4 can be quite complicated, depending on the installed plugins, components and settings within. The result can be Error 500, and you cannot access the administrator backend anymore. For free advice on the migration see the end of this article.

Joomla4 error 500

We migrated the majority of our clients from Joomla3 to Joomla4 last month, many with different components like Acymailing, RS Forms, Akeeba, Seblod, RO Payments, Email authentication plugin by Michael Ritchey and ofcourse our Component My Member Software. Some of the plugins in your installation might have been abandoned; and are not Joomla4 compatible.

Based on our experience we created a step-by-step list, which generally works well:

  1. Create a full backup, for example with Akeebabackup
  2. Extensions -> Manage -> Update sites : Rebuild
  3. Update all components, also JCE editor
  4. Select frontend template Protostar and backend Isis
  5. Extensions -> Manage -> Filter for templates. Uninstall all templates except for protostar and isis. If this is the last style, remove at least template related system plugins such as system/plugins/rsmelia).
  6. Uninstall plugin “mms export”, “AkeebaStrapper”
  7. Extensies -> Manage ->Database : Check for errors in
  8. Install latest version MMS 8.0.9_J3
  9. Acymailing check configuratie, disable “AcyMailing : (auto)Subscribe during Joomla registration”
  10. Create a full backup, for example with Akeebabackup
  11. Components -> Joomla update options (Next Joomla) : migrate to Joomla 4
  12. Update all components (don't forget MMS 8.1.21_J4), and check if NL language and weblinks are updated
  13. Select Cassiopia style as default and choose positions for the enabled modules
  14. Delete files from folder /tmp with FTP

Introducing: VUE.js frontend

new version mms 7.9.3
NEW ! We migrated the frontend coding language from Angular to VUE.js. We expect VUE to be a stable and safe language for a number of years.

No new functions, we tried to keep it as close to the previous frontend as possible.

The action price of MMS ended in 2022, which makes a better reflection of the costs made for maintenance. By upgrading the price, the continuity of MMS is saved.

Current clients can renew their license for 79 EUR (VAT included).

Introducing: Stable version versie 7.9.3 is out !

new version mms 7.9.3
NEW ! 2 new functions, 8 bugfixes, 2 security improvements make version 7.9.3 a major update. To maintain quality we added new robot tests and got MMS through the ironer for changes in Acymailing 7 and several bugfixes.

Most popular new functions:

  1. Assign Joomla groups to members. In combination with the separate available MMS Logging plugin it is possible to assign groups to members through the member administration. Through these groups a multitude of permissions is available, for example for Commissions, Platforms, Task groups, and so on without having to change the membertype. These groups are added on top of the normal membership.
  2. Automatic activation of applicants. Until now, applicants always needed to be manually promoted by the secretary or a commission. The included cli script makes it possible to do this automatically.
  3. Bridge of the member portal to Wordpress. Combining the best of both (CMS) worlds: the userfriendly Wordpress environment plus the advanced Joomla intranet. Send out newsletters from Wordpress posts to an up to date list of members at the member portal instantly.

Quality is secured by the newly added robot tests that we created for Acymailing 7 and the bugs that have been solved. Read more.

Current clients can renew their license for 35 EUR (VAT included).
