We are looking to manually upgrade from Joomla [url removed, login to view] to Joomla 2.5. We have already begun the process with our hosting company, Godaddy. We need help with step 6 which Joomla describes as:
“Step 6: Convert the table schemas in the .sql file you exported in step 2 (containing your Joomla 1.5 tables) such that they are compatible with the version of Joomla! you are upgrading to. This is a very tedious process - you'll have to check the database schemas for changes between the version of Joomla you're upgrading from and the 2.5 version you're upgrading to, and modify the SQL file accordingly."
Can you do this? How long do you believe it would take and how much would it cost? We will also be looking at creating a new website in the near future and will need to have a template built. So if things go well, we will be contacting you for that.
