As we all know, Magento 2.0 is now available. Many of us are running an older version of Magento (atm).

In my opinion, we need to build a roadmap to migrate Magento to the newest version.

For older roadmaps/upgrade tips:

- 1.7 to 1.9: Magento upgrade from 1.7 to 1.9

- 1.6 to 1.9: Best way to upgrade Magento to

Did someone already upgraded/migrated magento to the newest version? Do you have any suggestions, tips or marks?

Hopefully we can help each other to upgrade succesfully to the newest version of Magento.

Here is resources what we have so far for migration to Magento 2:


It is not possible to upgrade Magento 1.x store to Magento 2, but it is possible to migrate data from an existing Magento 1.x store to a new Magento 2 store.
There is the official data migration tool: https://github.com/magento/data-migration-tool-ce
And there is the guide: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/migration/bk-migration-guide.html


In my opinion, you can upgrade magento 2 via admin because it does not required many technical knowledge. Follow guide and migrate data. However, it hides many errors. if you are using Magento EE or Magento go, the best way is finding a Magento migration service. Don't need time and human to read document, research to migrate data. Magento 1.9 and Magento 2 have many differences in structures and systems. Upgrade to Magento 2 is not simple as a quick fix at all.

  • Really ? From admin !

  • You cannot. M2 is completely different from M1. It's like a new platform, but they just named it Magento for marketing's sake.
