Magento is going forward to satisfy both customers’ behavior and e-merchant’s need. Magento 1.9 is last version of Magento 1.x with supported features such as financing and payment solutions, security and UX, cross-border price consistency. In Nov 2015, Magento released Magento 2 – the next generation of Magento and e-commerce platform. Magento improves this version with important change that proves Magento is one of the professional shopping cart. There are many radical change in structure. Magento 2 uses command line for development.

As I understand, many storeowners update old version of Magento to Magento 2. It is not really an upgrade magento 1 to 2. It called a Magento migration to migrate data from magento 1 to magento 2. People can see some suggestion to upgrade to magento 2.


However, in some case, the migration process is not successful. It hides risks of data loss, site break down, cloud connect fail. When you clear the cache and hit the url its infinite redirect loop. Upgrading through the browser has a number of downsides, most notably that the browser can timeout or anything from the web server you’re talking to and the php backend. When that happens you have no clue what went wrong or is going to go wrong.

Online business can try with Magento migration tool that is an automated solution of LitExtesion to migrate database from magento 1.x to magento 2. Although Magento releases Magento 2.2, Magento 2.0 is the most popular version of Magento 2. See the detailed information:

– Upgrade Magento 1.7 to 2.0

– Upgrade Magento 1.8 to 2.0

– Upgrade Magento 1.9 to 2.0

– Magento 2 upgrade (supported all version of Magento 2)

When it comes to migration from M1 to M2, there are following elements you need to take into consider -:
-Do you need new creative design or not? (UI / UX)
-Do you want to migrate all data from old store to new store?

         -Catalogue Data (Product, Category)
         -Customer Data
        - Order Data
         -Newsletter Data
         -CMS pages / blog

-Do you want to build your theme from scratch or you have out of the box Magento 2 themes to be installed?
-Do you have third party extensions which are available in M2 or not?
-Do you have custom extension which required to be rebuilt in M2?


Try Magento 1 to Magento Migration Estimator will help you get an idea of things which need to be considered and also give you an idea of cost.


Best of luck with your migration, hope things go well for you!
