2.2.6?  I think you're better off trying to export the data and rebuilding the site with that data.  I've only done one 2.x to 3.x conversion and that was 6-7 years ago and if I remember correctly the data model was too far apart and had no upgrade path from 2.x to 3.x so I ended up having to write some conversion scripts.

From 3.x it is possible to upgrade to the latest version but it's not going to be easy.  See

thank you for answer.

I suspected that it would not be possible
Is there a method to export data and reimport?
also how to find the website design?

As far as I know there is nothing out there that will export and reimport - I did custom scripts...  but, it was a long time ago.

If I remember correctly the design for 2.x was stored in the database... (not 100% sure anymore) so it would be difficult to extract.  The conversion way back whenever, we just extracted the data and built new 3.x objects with a new design.

What kind of site is this anyway?  Is it some sort of archive?  In a couple of cases in the past I've also made static sites from existing 2.x sites and linked to that content from a new site.  If it's possible - no interactive forms anywhere - then maybe that's the way to go.
