Unique 1.9 to 2.x migration question.

Unique 1.9 to 2.x migration question.

I have been running a 1.9 site for many years and recently my hosting provider managed to delete my site's directory structure (but not the database).  On top of that, there was no functioning backup to fall back to.  So now I'm trying to see if I can do the migration from 1.9 to 2.x without the site actually being up and running?  

 

Looking at the migration flow diagram, it shows starting with a healthy Magento 1.9 site, but all of the steps appear to deal only with the database.

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to do a new install of Magento 2.x and then just migrate the data from the old database into it?  Or am I looking at having to reinstall a clean 1.9 site, point it to my old database and then try and do the migration?

 

Thanks for any help or insight,

 

Keith

@Oberst Hajj Yes in order to migrate required to have an old version and new both. What about code modules? Do you have a backup of code?

Re: Unique 1.9 to 2.x migration question.

Thanks for the reply Gaurav.  My entire directory containing all the Magento files was deleted and the daily backup that was done overwrote the good backup because I was not aware of the issue before the new backup was made.

 

So it sounds like my only option is to re-install Magento 1.9 and point it to my current database.  Once that is done, install 2.0 in a different location and then try and run the migration?

Hi @Oberst Hajj,

 

For migrating Magento website from M1-M2, we only do data migrate there which we are having in DB. 

There is no need for files/ folders of M1 for migration. But yes, you need your media files. If you have that then you can follow the instructions which is given by Magento here.

https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/migration/migration-plan.html

 

But yes, definitely if we have running store then we can compare the feature list easily. So this might be a painful task for you to prepare the feature list again from scratch but will be a good chance to review all the features again. So you can follow the guidelines which is given by Magento.

Let me know if you are having any other queries, will happy to assist you.

@Ketika M, thank you for the reply.  It is good to know that I should be able to move my data over from the old database to the new one.  However, the link you provided did not work.  Would you happen to have an updated one?

Hi, The link works if you remove the garbage characters from the end. However here is the more recent alternative: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.2/migration/migration-plan.html

Hi @Oberst Hajj

 

I updated the link in my earlier reply. Also pasting it here, some garbage characters added to that link thus it was not working.
