I've had two developers put this in the too hard basket so I'm hoping that someone here has a solution.
Building the new Magento 2 website for homebru.com.au has caused us major issues and took some time to get to the final stage.
We're now at the point where it could go live, however the products list has changed quite a bit as the customer has added/removed products since we uploaded the database the first time.
Do you have a way to easily import the Magento 1 database to the new Magento 2 website?
Magento 1: homebru.com.au
Magento 2: homebru.com.au/newsite
We need to resolve this before we can go live so any advice or support would be appreciated. If you are a developer and can do this easily we can negotiate a rate to bring you on board to finish the job.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I'm asuming those two developers weren't real developers but power users that called themselfs developers because they knew a bit of scripting. Database migration is a easy thing, especially for something like magento where everything is clearly defined. I
suggest to find a real developer that knows his sql or try one of the migration tools/options on your test environments and test the results.
The safe way is to migrate your database from one Magento store to another is import/export option. I would recommend to use the Store Manager application for transferring products, customers, orders etc. Here is also a step-by-step guide how to make it.
Thank you. It's quite hard when - in my situation - you know what you want, you don't know quite how to achieve it, and you're relying on the "expert" to know what they are doing, and it turns out that they don't have the experience they really should have to call themselves experts.
