I`m trying to migrate a store from magento 1.3 to 1.8. When using "Export All Products" profile in dataflow, the output csv does not contain media_gallery columns and images.

Is there a way to export the gallery images from magento 1.3?

  • You should simply upgrade as David Alger has described Feb 4 '14 at 17:16

The default import / export does not support working with media gallery's. If I recall correctly, uRapidFlow Pro supports at least importing them, don't know about export though.

My advice: follow the documented upgrade path and upgrade the existing database to move everything to 1.8. Do this in a test environment, record everything which is needed and pre-flight everything before finally doing it on production during a set maintenance window. And finally, before doing it on production, make sure you have a working backup.

  • uRapidFlow Pro supports only 1.4+. I Upgraded 1.3 successfully to 1.4.2 and then to by installing a clean magento 1.4.2 and pointed it to the existing 1.3 db, then repeated the process with magento

  • I am not sure why you can't upgrade directly to 1.8.1? Feb 7 '14 at 15:15
  • @brentwpeterson Because it's not a supported upgrade path. See this page for details: magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/…
