Step by step Guideline: Magento 1 to Magento 2 Migration
Here’s a step by step guideline to Upgrade Magento 1.9 to Magento 2.3 with ease. Take a backup of your Magento 1.x store’s source code and database.
Check Magento 2 version
With the use of the following command, you can check your Magento 2 version.
php bin/magento --version
You need to install a “Data Migration Tool” before proceeding to data migration. “Data Migration Tool” version should be the same as the Magento 2.x version.
Data Migration Tool installation:
The below command will update the composer.json file to add the repository.
composer config repositories.magento composer https://repo.magento.com composer require magento/data-migration-tool:< magento_2.x_version >
For Example, if you have Magento 2.3.2 version, then the actual command is:
composer config repositories.Magento composer https://repo.magento.com
composer require magento/data-migration-tool:2.3.2
Magento 2 Data Migration Tool configuration:
After installing the data migration tool, you need to do the proper configuration of data migration. You can find data migration tool folder
Inside “/data-migration-tool/etc” folder you could find three folders “commerce-to-commerce, opensource-to-commerce, opensource-to-opensource”
Enter into the folder as per your Magento 1.x version and edition. For example, if you have Magento version 22.214.171.124 community edition then enter into “opensource-to-opensource” and then enter into the folder as per your Magento version 126.96.36.199
After that, we need to rename config.xml.dist to config.xml and open config.xml file and change code as per the below screenshot.
You can find the “encryption key” from < Magento1.9.x Root Dir >/app/etc/local.xml
For migrating settings from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x,
Navigate to the Magento 2.x root directory via terminal and run the below code.
php bin/magento migrate:settings --reset < Path Of config.xml >
php bin/magento migrate:settings --reset vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/opensource-to-opensource/188.8.131.52/config.xml
You can migrate data (e.g. categories, products, orders, customer information, etc.) from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x.
php bin/magento migration:data --reset < Path Of config.xml >
php bin/magento migrate:data --reset vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/opensource-to-opensource/184.108.40.206/config.xml
