I'm testing magento 2 and migrated our old (test) store with the ubertheme data migration tool.
Everything imported nicely but when I create a new order through frontend or backend, the orders start with 000000001 instead of the last order number (123007191). Maybe this has to do with me changing the order numbers in magento 220.127.116.11 ?
I've tried changing the order numbers the same way I've changed it in magento 1.8 (through phpmyadmin), but it doesn't work.
I hope to avoid reinstalling and reimporting everything as it took me almost a day to get it to import everything.
How do I change it back to the old order number?
Did you upgrade your old database or import the data from your old database to your new one?
I have developed the «Sales Documents Numeration» extension for Magento 2.
It allows a Magento 2 store's administrator to use a custom numeration for the sales documents: orders, invoices, shipments, and credit memos.
