Joomla! 3 End of Life – What You Need to Know

As documented on, Joomla 3.10 is a bridge between the Joomla 3.x series and 4.x. Now we got to the point that Joomla 3.x will reach its End of Life (EOL)

Joomla 3.x reaches End of Life (EOL) on August 17 2023 and will no longer receive updates or security patches. Users are encouraged to upgrade to Joomla 4 as soon as possible in order to continue receiving updates and security patches.

How to upgrade Joomla! 3 to Joomla! 4

There are a few ways to upgrade from Joomla 3 to 4. The easiest way is to use the one-click upgrade in the Joomla! Update component in the backend administrator side of Joomla. Many third-party extensions are a one-click upgrade too. Some are not. You need to look at each one and determine what path the extension needs to follow to get from 3.10 to 4.x.
