Convert from V3/4 to V5

Sjarel77 14 Jan, 2016
Good morning

On my Joomla website, I had Chronoforms V3 installed, which was always working.
Now with the necessary updates, in the back-end it's not possible anymore to edit the forms.
When I want to go to the form-manager, I get a "500 server error". and that's it.


So I thought with the installation of V5 it would solve the problem
But no, it's a totally new component.
Eventhough it's validated, I can't see my forms anymore.

Is it possible to transfer my old forms to V5? like with phpmyadmin?
Are there some tricky steps?

Hi Seppe,

Please see this FAQ - that may explain the problem if you have upgraded Joomla! recently.

There is no automatic upgrade from CFv4 to CFv5 - you can import the Form HTML with the Restore but the best solution is to re-build your forms. Both CFv4 and CFv5 run on Joomla! 3.4 so you can keep the CFv4 forms until you need to change them.
