If you are still running an old version of Joomla your website is at risk. Old enough that Joomla development team is not supporting these versions anymore.

Finally a solution to easily migrate to Joomla 3.

Some other third party extension follow the same roadmap and DayCounts.com is not an exception as we already stopped any further developments on those platforms.

This migrator, is a giant leap towards Joomla 3!
Every Joomla core and Virtuemart content from your shop will be copied over. Here is how it works.

Install blank Joomla 3 on the same server as your existing website
Install JMigrator component and configure database access and file paths
Select the contents you want to migrate and hit the "Migrate now button"
Our system will copy and transform all the data to have an almost fully functional brand new website out of the box

Integrity

All the data will be transferred using the same ids.** What does that mean? Well that means data integrity is preserved during migration. Most of your links having an ID in the url will remain the same

Multilingual

If available, your Joomfish translations will be imported too !

Robust

Our sytem was run successfully on several shops with up to 20.000 products

No rush

Although this component will be a great help, your 'old' site is still running and customers continue to register, orders are created and you don't want to turn it down before the new website is ready.
You may have other components, modules, plugins and template that you want to migrate and we understand that can take some time.
No problem, hit the migrate button again and all new data will be imported so your data keep up to date.

Extensible

Yes! The JMigrator is extensible and additional plugins are available to migrate data from other components such as AWO Coupon, iStraxx downloads, Alph User Points, RS Blog, K2 and more to come.

Functionality
Very capable but can't cope with certain things like if you delete Shopper fields in between migrations. Also found a few major bugs, fixed!
Ease of use
Easy to use when you know how - thorough reading of documentation 1st is highly recommended.
Support
Hit and miss - sometimes really great other times quite drawn out to resolve issues quickly. Time zone diff GMT / Canada did not help.
Documentation
Good but room for improvement.
Value for money
For a short simple project < 6 months then good VFM otherwise you need to renew the support subscription doubling the price - disappointing.
I used this to: https://www.trendco.co.uk/
Functionality
It updates your virtuemart installation but it transfers all your old Joomla 2.5 data if you wish. God send!
Ease of use
Piece of cake
Documentation
Perfect
Value for money
Absolutely worth every penny.
I used this to: Updating a Joomla site from J2.5.8 / VM 2.0.8a to J3.6.2 / VM 3.0.16

Ease of use
I used VM Migrator for two migrations, and both were done perfectly in a few clicks, it's incredibly easy o use.

Documentation
I didn't need documentation because VM Migrator is very easy to use and the instructions were very clear.
Value for money
It saved me hundreds of dollars: with VM Migrator I was able to do two migrations in a few clicks without need to hire an expert, awesome!
I used this to: I used VM Migrator to migrate two joomla+virtuemart websites. In my opinion VM Migrator is a must-have extensions for those who use joomla+virtuemart, and it's definitely one of the best extensions I've ever purchased, very worth the money, great extension.

VM Migrator is brilliant!

I used VM Migrator to update an old Joomla 1 site to Joomla 3 with Virtuemart. And it all worked!
Ease of use
Pretty easy. Set up the old database and file paths, and new ones, choose what you're actually copying and go.
Support
Support was brilliant. Thought a prob with VM was to do with migrator but turned out it was my fault. Support fixed my prob anyway!
Documentation
Documentation to set up was all straightforward
Value for money
Saved me heaps of time and stress. Well worth it. I'm going to upgrade a store soon with 10, 000 products. Try doing that manually.
I used this to: I transferred a Joomla 1 and Virtuemart 1 to latest versions and will do a shop with 10,000 products soon from Joomla 1.5. Will also use to populate normal non VM joomla sites when upgrading because it does articles etc as well. Copies VM products, categories, orders, payment etc

Great extension
