Before starting migration, you must do the following:

  • Set up your Magento 2 system so that it meets the system requirements

    Use a topology and design that at least matches your existing Magento 1 system.

  • Install Magento 2

  • Do not start Magento 2 cron jobs

  • After installation, back up or dump your Magento 2 database as soon as possible. This will allow you to restore the initial database state if migration is not successful.

  • Verify if the Data Migration Tool has network access to connect the Magento 1 and Magento 2 databases

    Open ports in your firewall so that the Migration Tool can communicate with the databases

  • To provide redundancy in the event of unexpected issues, we advise you to replicate your Magento 1 database

  • Migrate Magento 1 extension code to Magento 2

    To find the latest extensions versions, visit Magento Marketplace or contact your extension provider. You can also use the Magento Code Migration Tool
