I recently started a Magento website that now has around 250 products. Whilst developing this, Magento 2 came out and I'm very keen to migrate my products and categories over to it. I've tried using the official Magento 2 data migration tool but it just doesn't work, it's awful to use and I get loads of errors every time I try to use it.

Is there an easier way I can migrate these products and categories over? I'm not bothered about migrating any other data across.

for data migration place migration tool in root

careate folder if not exist protected/runtime

give folder 777 permission
sudo chmod -R 777 migratedir

install sqllite

sudo apt-get install php5-sqlite
apt-cache search php | grep sqlite

migration is based on sqllite so you have to install.

than use the migration tool as bellow link.


i am not found other way to migrate because database and structure of magento 2 completely changed.

I hope this will help you.
