Joomla 1.6 is out today - hurray!  Now for the task of migrating version 1.5 sites (like the Cybersalt Site) to 1.6.

Here is a fix for the first snag I ran into.

In order to begin to try to upgrade a site form 1.5 to 1.6, I installed Jupgrade 0.5.1

After a successful install I proceeded to try the component but got this error message:

Fatal error: Class 'JSimpleXML' not found in xxxx/xxxxxx/xxxxxx/www/joomla16/administrator/components/com_jupgrade/views/cpanel/view.html.php on line 30

After some googling where Fatal error: Class 'JSimpleXML' not found has been an error to be dealt with in Joomla, I found the solution.

In the file administrator/components/com_jupgrade/views/cpanel/view.html.php on or about line 30


$xml = new JSimpleXML;


$xml = JFactory::getXMLParser('Simple');

Problem #1 solved
