Upgrade Joomla 3.x to 4.x

14 September, 2023

Joomla 3 series is NOW END OF LIFE since August 17, 2023. No further security releases will be made - Not even security releases! You should already be planning your migration to Joomla 4, especially since Joomla 5 is scheduled for release in October 2023!

Official Lack of Support for Joomla 3

In light of Joomla 3 reaching its end of life, it's crucial for website owners to take action promptly. Without ongoing support, your Joomla 3.x site may become vulnerable to security threats. Fortunately, Joomla recognizes the importance of a smooth transition.

Extended Long Term Support (eLTS)

To assist site owners in maintaining their Joomla 3.x sites while they migrate to Joomla 4, the Joomla project has introduced the Extended Long Term Support (eLTS) program. This program offers an additional 18 months of security support for Joomla 3.x, extending its support period until February 17, 2025. This generous window allows site owners ample time to complete their migration to the 4.x branch without running an unsupported and potentially insecure Joomla version.

Purchasing Additional Support

Participating in the eLTS program requires site owners to purchase a license for each Joomla 3.x site they wish to cover. The license fee is designed to be affordable and straightforward, with a fixed fee of € 90 per site for the entire 18-month support period. This fixed pricing model ensures accessibility for businesses of all sizes, as well as hobby site owners.

A license grants you the right to use the eLTS update server on your Joomla site, providing access to the 3.11 eLTS version branch. This branch will continue to receive security patches, ensuring the continued security of your Joomla 3.x site throughout the eLTS program.
