I am having a bit of a brain fart here.
I am trying to migrate from 18.104.22.168 to 2.2.6
I have attempted to perform this migration before, and the deltas screwed me up. So now, I have migrated the 1.9 from the old hosting provider to AWS where I can manage the full stack. I then have a new server running as a development server that hosts a 1.9 instance and a 2.2.5 instance.
For whatever reason, I can't seem to process how this is supposed to work with production data.
I feel like I am over thinking it. I was thinking that I needed to have an RO DB but if I did that, then the migration tool would not work to create new tables in the database for the migration, but I also don't want to touch the production data, so I don't want the migration tool touching the old server. But then I feel like I want a 1-way sync from the prod DB to the dev DB, but will it get screwed up with new orders/customers from the prod DB after the sync has been performed?
Any suggestions on what I am missing? I feel like it is just something simple.
