1. Is it possible to jump upgrades, therefore upgrade from Magento CE 188.8.131.52 directly to Magento 2.0?
2. Are there any detailed instructions on how to get this done?
I am currently using GoDaddy cPanel Linux Hosting.
Documentation says that it's possible: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/migration/migration-overview-supported.html
I upgraded my Magento store to 2.0 version and found it a wise decision. Magento 2.0 adds new features and security. But I can't transfer all data from my store manually so I purchase a tool that works well and now I have a Magento 2.0 site with all of my data. You may try it: https://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/litextension-magento-to-magento-migration-tool.html
The process can't be named "upgrading". It is more like a "data migration". There is an overview of the data migration process http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/migration/bk-migration-guide.html
Data that will be migrated:
Data that need to be migrated manually:
Data that won't be migrated:
I am using site ground hosting and facing issues with upgrading (migrating) magento website from 1.8 to 2.0.
Can anyone please help me with the steps?
Any help would be appreciated.
Hey, I’d agree with you on that it’s more kind of a migration than upgrade. If upgrading, you’d have to update your store from 1.8 to 1.9 and only then to 2.0. However, due to significant differences of Magento 1.x and 2.x internal structures (second generation was written from scratch) the only way to upgrade is to perform a database migration from store running on 1.x to 2.x, actually.
I used cart2cart only a short time ago to migrate from Shopify to Magento and very happy about the results. They seem to have Magento to Magento migration plugin on Magento Connect too. I’m almost sure it’ll work out as good as my did. https://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/cart2cart-upgrade-service-3-17801.html
Looking forward for your feedback.
When moving your M1 to M2 site, actually it associates with four perspectives - extensions, theme, customization (if any) and data.
You should check if your extensions/theme providers have M2 version ready.
For database, it depends on the scope of data you wish to move to M2. Typical data migration will deal with:
Hope that helps.
PS. To handle data migration, using migration tool is a good starting point that saves you much of time. We have a handy tool in place to help you on this. See our step-by-step migration video tutorial to see if it is a good fit for you.
