The Joomla Training Cohort has been launched!

Please send any feedback or bug reports to  

In this live stream I intentionally ignored all the best practices for how to update from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4 - and of course broke my site in the process. I did try to fix it afterwards, but after a couple of hours realized that what had broken was that not all of Joomla 4 had installed. It was a fun experiment that taught me a few things.




  • Title: "(1) I Broke My Joomla Site Updating from Joomla 3 to Joomla 4! - 👀 Watch Me Work 131 - YouTube"
    - Transcript highlights:
    - The video is about updating a Joomla 3 site to Joomla 4 deliberately to break it and demonstrate how to fix it.
    - The speaker mentions having a vacation when Joomla 4 was released.
    - The speaker is using Akeeba Backup Pro to make backups of the site.
    - They create a subdirectory for the test site and upload a backup of the Joomla 3 site to it.
    - They use Kickstart to restore the site, but they mention the need to rename the Kickstart file.
    - The video also briefly discusses handling extensions and components during the Joomla update process.
