Upgrade from Mage 1 to Mage 2

Upgrade from Mage 1 to Mage 2

Has anyone upgraded from 1 to 2? What has your experience of the process been?

 

I currently work for a company that uses Magento v1.9.x and is intending to upgrade in the next 12 months to the latest version of Magento v2.x.x. So once I can get my hands on better hardware for my own home use, I might run the process myself at home as a test first to see if there is any issues I can expect.

Hi @damien_hunter

 

Migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2

 

You define year span for migration over the latest generation magento 2.x, then its safe to presume that the size of your existing magento 1 build and data profile must be huge.

 

Migration process broadly involves four different aspects.

 

  • Theme Migration
  • Extension Migration
  • Customizations Migration
  • Data Migration

 

For Data porting make sure you utilize  Data Migration Tool - https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/migration/migration-tool.html 

 

Frontend/theme, your community extension packs (paid/free) and whole custom codebase requires a kind of re-factoring and re-coding rounds depending on your e-commerce workflow, embedded business rules and lot other many narrow areas.

 

Particularly about your frontend end-user bounding shop, you may consider to face-lift overall shopfront design/appearance including mobile experience – this is something which will decide your theme migration approach.

 

Re : issue - while migrating data you may face some common issue which is outlined on Magento DevDocs itself, here is the reference link for the same - https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/howdoi/migrate/migrate-data.html 

 

For Migrating codebase and theme its almost a rebuild process therefore, if you follow best practises and all coding complinces, well in that case you wouldn't face any issues in this area.

Re: Upgrade from Mage 1 to Mage 2

From our experience, it would be best to proceed data migration in the first place. Once you verify all migrated data, you start with theme / extension integration.

 

In terms of data migration, it's more about the data migration tool you select. A right tool will help you do the heavy lifting.

 

Here's a few common Magento migration FAQs that we curated from our actual Magento data migration. We hope it might help you have an overview to prepare your own migration plan.
