jUpgrade is a simple Joomla! 1.5 component that will download a version of Joomla! 1.7/2.5, decompress it and install it. After that, it should migrate all of the data from old Joomla! 1.5 to the new Joomla! 1.7/2.5 installation.

jUpgradeCli is located on GitHub but before that, we need to get the Joomla! Platform package. To do this:
# git clone git://github.com/joomla/joomla-platform.git
# git clone git://github.com:fastslack/jUpgrade.git
# cd jUpgrade/cli
# cp bootstrap.dist.php bootstrap.php
Next, you need to edit the configuration.php file (configuration.dist.php is the example) and fill the database credentials.
