I am trying to export the categories and products from magento 188.8.131.52 so that I can import them to another 1.9 installation. I've tried the following
System -> Export ->Dataflow - profiles -> Export All Products -> run profile
This gives an internal server error. I have noticed that sites hosted with this company have these errors all over the place.
Plain export of all category and product tables from first magento database, import to new installation
This resulted in foreign key constraint errors that I couldn't face
Set up Apache virtualbox on vagrant, copied magento installation to run the first option locally
I can't log in to the admin area. This seems a common problem, I have tried all the solutions but its still not working
Set up nginx virtualbox on vagrant, copied magento installation to run the first option locally
I could install the copy of magento and log in without any problems at all but when I run the "Export all products" I run into "504 gateway timeout" and all my efforts to increase execution time made no difference.
What should I try next?
