I'm trying to migrate Joomla 1.5 to Drupal 7 by using Feeds Module. I have tried the "Joomla to Drupal" with no luck. And the "Migrate" module requires some PHP coding, which I'm not an expert on this.

Question 1 - So, my question is which phpMyAdmin database for "Node Import" when I import CSV to Drupal? I know "jos_users" is for the "User import". What about the rest of them?

Question 2 - How to import Joomla user password by using Feeds? The password format seems different.

Question 3 - How and where can I import the url formatting?

For details, please see below of my Joomla phpMyAdmin database list.

Thanks!

I've never considered how you would use Feeds to import from a database, but it works great for migrating content when that content is in a "feed".

If you have to use the DB, then there is Feeds SQL and Feeds DB, but I think both require you to write a query. That said, if you are using phpMyAdmin then when you "open" any of those tables phpMyAdmin will show the query it's running.

If you are able to expose your content as an xml/rss feed, a JSON feed, , or etc. then thing become very straight forward.

Using the Feeds Preview module may help you get your mapping correct.

You should be able to import the node alias (path) along with the content.

You could try to use cms2cms.

I don't have experience with it, but i must says'it costs you some.

To 10 pages it's for free, after that you need to pay.

  • Thank you @d1m5n. I think it will cost me a lot. The site that I'm migrating is over 1000pages. – CocoSkin Mar 31 '14 at 20:26
  • should be a better way to do it then – d1m5n Mar 31 '14 at 20:55
  • I have worked with the drupal to drupal migrate module. I have written my own modules for this. You can write your import script for this. Also i have noticed a other module: drupal.org/project/joomla (it's in alpha though) – d1m5n May 26 '14 at 8:50
  • I just migrated few Joomla sites to Drupal for the past few weeks by using Feeds Module. Everything seem fine, except the password. PS: We tried "Joomla to Drupal" module with no luck. It stops around 50%, that's why we used Feeds Module. Actually, these sites we were migrated are over 8000+ pages. – CocoSkin May 27 '14 at 13:34

    @jan I dont know what type of plug-in you have. You can migrate any data from Joomla, as long as it is in your database. What "Feeds" module does is allow you to map data into Drupal. Hope this video can help you with Feeds module (youtube.com/watch?v=YXgjFRn7ty4) – CocoSkin Jul 10 '14 at 16:23
