Primary Magento 2 database migration

We offer this service as a one-time payment service for a smooth transfer of all data to your new store.

Primary database migration to Magento 2 is the initial step of the migration process. We copy the existing database and launch its primary transfer. Our specialists will document the arising issues and resolve them as quickly as possible, thus reducing the chances of data loss.

Upon the completion of Magento 1 to 2 migration to a blank database, you’ll gain access to our staging environment to ensure that everything was done correctly and that the data migration Magento 2 attempt was successful. If that’s true, we move on to the next steps: setting up triggers in your existing store’s database and transferring data, including:

Web content
Media files
Customer info
Product data

After this, as a part of our Magento 2 data migration tool package, we clean the unaltered Magento 2 installation.

Delta database migration

The end-users will continue navigating your store and making changes in the source system while we Magento 2 migrate database.

Is there a huge difference in developing in Magento 2 versus Magento 1.x?

Yes, the difference is big, since Magento 1 and Magento 2 are different to a great extent.

Unlike its predecessor, Magento 2 has a modular architecture that allows developers to customize an eCommerce store as they wish.

It’s freely available for installation but requires some prerequisites to move data correctly. If you’re tech-savvy enough, you can use the tool relying on Magento’s step-by-step guide; if not, address specialists for help.

How can I migrate a database from a Shopify site to Magento?

Migrating a database from Shopify to Magento can be done in one of the following ways:

  • Using a third-party extension for data export/import
  • Via API, or
  • Manually

Which method to choose depends on your store’s current setup and should be determined by your migration team.

What is the best way to merge specific database tables and data from one database to another in Magento 2 (database, sales order, data migration, Magento)?

What is the best way to secure Magento 2 migration services?

To fix this error, use the following prefix settings: ovh_ and make sure that options doesn’t contain the default prefix .
