It's time to create new or re-design your websites to bring it to the next level.
Migrating K2 content from Joomla! 1.5 to 1.7
Step 3. Log in phpMyAdmin
Step 4. Export J1.5 k2 tables
Step 5. Import k2 tables .sql into J1.7 database, leave k2 tables in MyISAM format
Step 6. Running SQL query:
UPDATE `PREFIX_k2_items` SET created_by = NEW_ID WHERE created_by = OLD_ID to update k2_items created_by ID to new J1.7 Super User ID.
Step 7. Update k2_items modified_by ID to new J1.7 Super User ID:
UPDATE `PREFIX_k2_items` SET modified_by = NEW_ID WHERE modified_by = OLD_ID
Step 8. All of k2 items had access set to 0 so I made them all public again:
UPDATE `PREFIX_k2_items` SET access = 1 WHERE access = 0
Step 9. Copy k2 media items from J1.5 and paste into J1.7 …/media/k2/
