you may follow plan describe below to migrate to Magento CE 2.3.0 from Magento

First, need to install Magento 2 Data Migration Tool and then you need to set it up by editing configuration xml files in vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/.

For any mismatch tables fileds between Magento 1.X & Magento 2 Database, you have to Igone or map those fields for Magento 1.X to Magento2.X tables. Please check this link for more information [https://inchoo.net/magento-2/magento2-data-migration-tool/][2] .

It may long process (depending on custom tables and Custom Fields on Magento 1 Database) because until you map or Ignore all mismatch field, Data Migration Tool will not complete the migration process.

  • Code Migration

For code migration, you need to find out / install Magento 2 version of all Magento 1 modules. You can ask the vendor for an updated version on all of Magento 1 Modules.

If any customization has done on templates file (*.phtml) in Magento 1 project, then you need to implement those customizations in Magento 2

  • Test Migration

It is a better plan to do a Test Migration first. Install a fresh Magento 2, then dump Magento 1 database into your localhost and do the data migration task.

After you successfully migrate Data, then go for Code (Extenstion and Customization) Update.

  • Media Migration

    For Media files (like Products images, Categories Images, CMS pages Images) migration , you need to Copy & Paste media files from Magento 1 media Directory ( magento1root/media) to Magento 2 pub/media directory (magento2root/pub/media).

Once you will be done with Data Migration, Media Migration, and Code Updates, then you can go for data migration from your Live Magento 1 site.

Below are some useful links you can check for Magento 1 to Magento 2 Data migration process.





  • Solid answer. Magentos free Data Migration tool is sufficient but 3rd party tools can often be easier to use for the less technical
