How to download JomSocial

Simply log in to your account at JomSocial site and download the latest package. Unzip the package to find the JomSocial installation file or iJoomla Installer.

How to upgrade to JomSocial

1. Upgrade with Ijoomla Installer (recommended):

Navigate to iJoomla Installer component and simply click on the red "Upgrade" button. Instructions for this method can be found here.

2. To upgrade by installing the package:

  • From JomSocial 3.2.0.x - Uninstall the old version. Install the new version.
  • From JomSocial 2.6, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.1 - Perform a tier upgrade.
  • From JomSocial 1.5 - JomSocial 1.5 is very old, and is only compatible with Joomla 1.5. To upgrade to the latest JomSocial, you'll need to migrate to at least Joomla 2.5 and perform a tier upgrade. Lern how to do the migration using this tutorial

3. To upgrade with a patch:

Upgrading with a patch is not as recommended as upgrading with the Joomla installer or with iJoomla installer, but if you have to use this method of upgrading ( for example, if you hacked JomSocial files) then this is possible.

You can find the patched files on our forum and if you don't know how to upgrade with a patch, we've created a tutorial for you.
