How to update Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 with Perfect Dashboard

Officially, Perfect Dashboard supports Joomla 3.x only. However, here’s a trick how to use Perfect Dashboard test engine with older Joomla versions. 

  1. Do the backup using third party plugin/tool (Akeeba Backup recommended)
  2. Add your website as “other” on Perfect Dashboard
  3. Generate test
  4. Update your website manually from admin panel
  5. Go back again to Perfect Dashboard and run test
  6. Review the test results and fix the bugs, if needed

And it's all done!
