migration from Prestashop 1.4.6.2 to Thirty Bees ?

Question

Is it possible to migrate from Prestashop 1.4.6.2 to Thirty Bees, without the need to upgrade to Prestashop 1.6 ?

The Theme will not be a problem : we like to use a new Theme.

But we want to keep all the order information, and also all the products.

The idea is to migrate on a test-server, after the migrate but it back to the normal server and go live. While migration, we want to keep the PrestaShop 1.4.6.2 live to keep sales.

Is it possible to later import the new orders and the new products which are newer than the copy of the Prestashop ?

You would need to update to 1.6 first unless you use some service like cart to cart to transfer the data.

The usual trick is to make a test migration (PS 1.4.6.2 -> PS 1.6.1.20 -> thirty bees 1.0.6 -> thirty bees 1.0.7), taking notes on how to do it. Once the quirks are worked out, one can put the old shop to maintenance mode and do it again. Having a step by step list, this can be done within an hour or two.

The cart to cart service Lesley mentioned is this one: https://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/

I also found this in the forum : https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/548/migrate-prestashop-to-thirtybees

As i look into the module, it looks like i can setup a clean Thirty Bees store, and migrate the data with that module. For myself i also prefer to setup a clean install from Thirty Bees.

Has anyone experience with above module, will it do the job ? :)

It can, but I feel we would need to do a custom price on it, because its not just a simple migration.

@lesley is this a reply on my last post about that module : https://forum.thirtybees.com/topic/548/migrate-prestashop-to-thirtybees or at the post from Traumflug ? : "Can it be done with paid service from here? https://store.thirtybees.com/services " ?

It was a reply to the @dosbiner post about our migration services. We could migrate the data to a dev shop for you, then let you install the new theme, then migrate all the data again at the end with a service.

It will not from 1.4. It only works with 1.6 versions of PrestaShop.

@lesley said in migration from Prestashop 1.4.6.2 to Thurty Bees ?:

It will not from 1.4. It only works with 1.6 versions of PrestaShop.

No thats not true. I migrated several webshops from 1.5 to 1.6 and 1.7 with this module. The description even mentions it can migrate from 1.3.

@cdwebman you can try the module on a testshop. However when you ask Lesley to do it for you or cart2cart you dont have to waste time on it. Especially when you have a big store. I should recommend to first migrate to 1.6.1.20 and after that when everything works migrate to Thirtybees.

Is it possible you two are talking about different things here?

I think @lesley talks about the thirty bees migration module (https://store.thirtybees.com/shop-modules/administration/thirty-bees-updater) and about upgrading to thirty bees.

@Baarssen apparently talks about a third party module (https://addons.prestashop.com/en/data-migration-backup/8934-migrationpro-prestashop-upgrade-and-migrate-tool.html), which can update from earlier PS versions, but does so not to thirty bees, but to PS 1.7.

I just bought the third party module.

Can i start with the 1.0.7 version from Thirty Bees, or do i have to start with an older install (1.06? )

With the third party module, i want to import the PrestaShop 1.4.6.2 data...

i should recommend to try it on 1.07. but first on a testsite. Dont forget to follow the steps(for example set rights on img folder to 777) Just play around with it so you can make it work

I asked this because of the answer from Traumflug :

The usual trick is to make a test migration (PS 1.4.6.2 -> PS 1.6.1.20 -> thirty bees 1.0.6 -> thirty bees 1.0.7),

I transfered the normal shop to a test-server, under the same username etc with Direct Admin, and when the site is migrated, i just can make an Admin backup to the normal server and restore it there, and the visitors wouldn't be bothered with the migration :)

I think @Traumflug mentioned this because he normally does it this way. This module is working a bit different: You setup a clean install, migrate the data into the fresh install, set up everything to see everything works correct and then move back. Its a quick, safe and easy way. Normally its not nescesary to first migrate the old shop. Just migrate the data into the fresh install.
