Are you looking to migrate from Magento 1 to Magento 2?


Magento has officially announced that Magento 1 will reach the end of life (EOL) on June 1, 2020

Please note that Magento Commerce 1 and Magento Open Source 1 will no longer receive quality fixes or security patches after this date.

Here we are providing the guideline on how the Magento migration works.

Some thumb rules need to follow before migration.

  • Backend Magento 1 store ( files and database ).
  • Create Development Env. of Magento 1 Store.
  • Analyze Magento 1 store, Delete unnecessary things ( files and data ).

The process of migrating to Magento usually consists of five phases.

  • Phase 1: Theme Migration.
  • Phase 2: Extension Migration.
  • Phase 3: Customization Migration.
  • Phase 4: Data Migration.
  • Phase 5: Testing

Phase 1: Theme Migration

First, you can’t migrate Magento 1 theme to Magento 2; you can Enhance Magento 2 Theme to look like your Magento 1 theme.

You can also choose a fresh look in Magento 2 theme by choosing themes from Marketplace or creating a custom theme.

Phase 2: Extension Migration

First, you can’t Migrate your Magento 1 extensions to Magento 2 because of compatibility issues while integrating Magento 1 extensions into Magento 2.

You can choose Magento 2 extensions from Marketplace or create your own Magento 2 module.

Phase 3: Customization Migration
