Finally a migrator especially designed for Virtuemart sites and much more.
If you are still running an old version of Joomla your website is at risk. Old enough that neither Joomla not Virtuemart development teams are supporting this versions anymore.
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 and Virtuemart 3.x !
Every Joomla core and Virtuemart content from your shop will be copied over. Here is how it works.
Install blank Joomla 3 and Virtuemart 3 on the same server as your existing website
Install VM Migrator 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
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
If available, your Joomfish translations will be imported too !
Our sytem was run successfully on several shops with up to 20.000 products
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.
Yes! The VM Migrator 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.
What is migrated?
Everything! Check by yourself:
All your Joomla Core Data
Order payment method
Order shipment method
If you have the product download plugin from iStraxx, your downloadble products that you sell will be migrated too and the number of downloads remaining will be preserved
