Joomla Upgrade. jUpgrade Stuck

When upgrading from Joomla 1.5.X to 1.6 i ran through an issue with jUpgrade. It seem like it was always getting stuck in the Downloading process. After restarting the process different times with different variables, i still could not get past the Downloading step. So i figure i check the Parameters settings, there i was able to disable the Download process. After changing the setting i restarted the upgrade process and it work correctly.

Please Note: Before we start, make sure you have the System - Mootools Upgrade module enable. This is usually the main reason many upgrades have failed.

If your Mootools Upgrade module is enable and jUpgrade keeps getting stuck, then try the following:

Go to your Components and click on jUpgrade. Click on the Parameters button. Looks like this: 

Disable the Downloading step by selecting YES in the Skip Download setting.

jUpgrade Skip Download
jUpgrade Skip Download

 

Now retry the upgrade and at the end you should see this screen:

Joomla Upgrade Done!
Joomla Upgrade Done!

 

If you still can't get pass the download step, you might new to download the upgrade file yourself and upload it in the temp folder located in your Joomla directory.
