JA JobBoard for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3 documentation

Warning: Before upgrade please perform full backup of your site.

For older versions of the component, you will have to find the uploads folder located in site_root/components/com_jajobboard folder to back-up and re-upload after you install the new version of the component.

To eliminate difficulties with component upgrade and back-up of the front-end user uploads, the JA Development Team changed the component to make it capable to manage user uploaded files in the Joomla! root folder, so outside the component installation folders.

  • In basics, the structure of all Job Board tables in version of Job Board for Joomla! 2.5 are kept as they were in Joomla! 1.5. So you can easily migrate your database from your Jobboard Joomla! 1.5 to Joomla! 2.5. To do that, you need:
  • Export Job Board tables form Joomla! 1.5 database ( the list of table is defiend in Appendix), ensure that you selected option "Add DROP TABLE / VIEW / PROCEDURE / FUNCTION / EVENT statement" when exporting (if export by phpmyadmin tool, you might find a similar option if use other tool to export your database)
