I am running 1.7 version of Magento on Website1.com. I am planning to create Website 2, install 1.9 version of magento, then install many new extensions and once that is completed I need to transfer all customer and product data from website1.com (OLD) to website2.com (NEW)
I am just not sure what exactly shall to transfer, Should I transfer full database from website1 (OLD) ? What files should I transfer ?
The way I was thinking of doing it is. 1. Make a copy of my website 1 and update it to magento 1.9. 2.Then instal new templates, extensions. But It will take me 2-3 weeks to make changes on new website. Once finished how can I transfer most latest customer information that were created during the period I will be developing the new website? (new orders, accounts, subscriptions to newsletters, etc.)
All I really need is customer data and product data. I don't need settings, extensions, and so on.
