Switch from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4

This page tells you how to safely move your AcyMailing data between two Joomla sites, or update a site to Joomla 4

Update your website to Joomla 4

AcyMailing is compatible with both Joomla 3 and 4, so this is pretty straight forward:

  1. First you need to update AcyMailing to its latest version, either by manually installing it or by using the Joomla extensions updater.

  2. Then update your website to Joomla 4 from the menu System => Control panel => Maintenance

For users still having AcyMailing 5, although it should still work for Joomla 4, we strongly recommend to update to the latest AcyMailing version as your data can be migrated.

Move AcyMailing from a Joomla 3 website to a Joomla 4 website

If you need to move your data between two Joomla websites, you can follow these steps:

  1. Update AcyMailing to its latest version on the origin website, either by manually installing it or by using the Joomla extensions updater.

  2. Open your origin database, and export the tables starting by xxx_acym_

  3. Import these tables to the new database, then replace the table prefix by the new database one

  4. Install AcyMailing on the new website

  5. On the new website, replace the folder media/com_acym/ by the one of the origin website

  6. (optional) If you made some custom translations, you can find them in the language/ folder, so copy for example language/af-ZA/af-ZA.com_acym_custom.ini to the same location on the new website

Note that these steps also work when moving AcyMailing between two Joomla 3 or two Joomla 4 websites.

If you own a paid version of AcyMailing, you'll also need to:

  1. Click the "Unlink my license" button in the License tab of the old website

  2. Attach the license in the new website then activate the "Automated tasks" option
