Joomla! Tutorials and More
Upgrading a live website is not something to be undertaken lightly so please read the Upgrade Instructions carefully. The instructions may appear complicated because there are many different configurations that need to be considered, but we have tried to write them so that you need only select a single path from the many available depending on your particular circumstances.
A user is a person (or group of persons) who has authenticated itself by providing the registration data you requested. Normally, you create user accounts in order to grant access to exclusive parts of your site or allow your visitors to post their content.

After you upgrade from Joomla! 1.5 to 1.7, the old plugin of Joomla! 1.5 can not be used anymore and you have to reinstall the plugin is compatible with the new version of Joomla.

Super Admin is a user with the highest powers in the management of the site. In some situations, you can not login with Super Admin acount. For example, your site may have been "hacked" and had the passwords or users changed. Or perhaps the person who knew the passwords is no longer available. Or maybe you have forgotten the password that was used.
In Joomla!, the template position is where the module will display on your website. Each template will have the number and different module positions. So you need to know the module positions of your template to publish your modules into place as you desire.
