You have to go 1.1.9 -> 1.1.21, which would make any necessary changes to attachments or avatars, then 1.1.21 -> 2.0.15. Since OP is already at 1.1.21, it's good to go.

You may not be able to upgrade from 1.1.11 to 2.0.14 directly. Go from 1.1.11 to 1.1.21, make sure everything's working, then upgrade 1.1.11 to 2.0.14.

The problem is that 1.1.x is so old it doesn't support newer PHP or newer MySQL.I'd be inclined to do the upgrade to 2.0.13 (specifically) before moving, then move, then use the patches to move to 2.0.15.
