Problems migrating warehouse theme from Prestashop 1.6 to Thirtybees

Question

Hello,

i have a new Thirtybees install running (1.1.0) - up to date - and im wondering how to migrate our old theme to the new shop, migrations worked well so far with MigrationPro.

Since the developer originally building our shop vanished in nowhere, im wondering how i can use our old theme without having access to updated versions of warehouse theme or the zip file at all.

First i tried to just copy the warehouse folder into new Thirtybees install theme folder, and set permissions. It doesnt shows up in the backoffice as avaible theme.

What lays in the warehouse theme folder is a warehouse.tar (im not even sure if i created that archive at some point) - which holds the subdirectory warehouse, i created a zip out of the uncompressed tar, which is basicly the same, to upload it in the theme manager, but i get error 500 right now, which i will look after later.

My basic question is, what i have to do when i just use the copy folder way, do i have to add it additionally in some file, like theme index or something, or why it isnt showing up this way?

Have you tried making a complete working copy of your old PS 1.6 site, installing the Thirtybees migrator and updating from there?
In theory it should migrate your site over to Thirtybees + the theme as well. If I'm not mistaken.

well i prefer to have a clean start, thats why i ordered a new machine, got rid of Plesk and configured all by myself.

last time i tried your recommendation with the thirtybees migrator on the original shop(that was my first try), it destroyed the shop completly and i needed to restore a backup (and it would include copying the database too - to the new system, which runs against my will to make a clean start).

i just dont want to create a whole new theme or start modyfying the existent one (lot of work), i would prefer making warehouse work.

my next step for finding  a solution was creating a new theme in the backoffice called warehouse, setting it the same basic setup like on my old prestashop, and then copy the content from the old warehouse theme folder there.

when i try to select the theme, which even shows the correct thumbnail:

Error: Attempt to install theme warehouse despite its invalid config.xml.

How i find out what exactly is invalid in the config.xml?

its warehouse 3.5 btw

You should be able to just install a fresh version of Warehouse on TB. Then, from your old system theme modules, download the config files for your theme, menu, and homepage, and upload to the new one. This will bring everything over, except maybe if you have some images in your DB that may need to be repointed or added again.

It's basically the same setup as when you start new and use one of the developer preset configurations. Only this time, you're using your own preset config files. I think he still has a YouTube video out there showing how to do it.
