Migrating from Magento 1 to 2 on a different server

Migrating from Magento 1 to 2 on a different server

I am running Magento 1 on a service that does not have the resources to accommodate Magento 2.  I have provisioned new hosting services and have a clean install of Magento 2 community edition there.  Magento 1 continues to run live on the old server.

 

Can I successfully use the migration tool between two servers, or does it have to be local.  I noticed you could specify a remote SQL server in the config.xml for the migration tool, but what about all of the product and category image files, etc?  How does it grab those?

Hello @captainharlock 

 

You no worry about the images. Once you done your migration you just need to copy all the media/catalog folder from M1 to M2 (pub/media/catalog) and all the images will automatic take.

 

Also I prefer to use local for the migration. Why I suggest you local because of the May be you can get some memory limit on server when you migrate the data.
