I have a magento 2.0.15 installation which I want to replace with a fresh installation of latest version 2.2.2

I'm not able to upgrade existing version to the latest one. I checked data migration tool, but it only supports migration from 1.9.x to 2.x

Any ideas how to migrate data from one version to another?

  • Why would you like to do afresh install? Why not use the built in upgrade tool (web or cli)? The backup tool can be used to create a backup, which you can import in a fresh install. I’ve exprienced some glitches with both tools, so be prepared. – user5198077 Jan 27 '18 at 22:00
  • in built admin web is not able to upgrade, I upgraded my test setup from server side using command line. Upgrade went fine, but when I check my shop, it has lot of problems. Nothing seems to work anymore. That is why I'm looking a way to start from fresh setup and migrate the data. – RRR Jan 28 '18 at 12:25
  • It would be good you show what errors you get after doing the CLI-upgrade. It could be easy to fix and be due to server configuration or know bugs. You could get same issues if you do a fresh install... – user5198077 Jan 28 '18 at 14:22

Please follow below commands in CLI :

NOTE : Please take backup of you files and database

bin/magento maintenance:enable
composer require magento/product-community-edition 2.2.2 --no-update
composer update
rm -rf var/cache/*
rm -rf var/page_cache/*
rm -rf var/generation/*
chmod +x bin/magento
bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento maintenance:disable

Keep you website in developer mode while upgrade so you fix the bugs. Also, You will have to update your modules and theme.

  • Since backup is from 2.0.X version, is it compatible to restore on a much later version like 2.2.2, As I said in my previous post my attempt to upgrade seems to be not working. – RRR Jan 28 '18 at 12:25
