I have inherited a Magento CE 1.4 shop that obviously needs upgrading. Preferrably I'd want to migrate straight to Magento CE 2 to be the most future proof. I am aware that this is not supported by official guide, and I'll most likely need to do most of the stuff manually.
The shop has around 4,000 SKUs, so it's not huge, but it's not small either, so I'd love some guidance on how to keep the amount of pain as small as possible - being fully aware that it will likely be painful nonetheless...
The whole thing gets further complicated by the fact that the current shop is in a shared hosting environment, so anything that needs SSH access to the current shop is out of the question.
The most important factors for me are:
1) Products and product attributes
I'd really need these transferred. I know I can do an export of products to CSV from the Magento 1.4 shop.
- Is the CSV produced compatible with the 2.x importer?
- Is there a way to get a similar export/import for attributes?
Basically the same as above. Can the exported data be imported to a 2.x shop?
I'm alright if I need to set up categories and the CMS completely manually, and need to do any custom features manually as well.
Is there any other guidance you can give me to avoid the worst headaches and nervous break downs during this migration?
