Transcripts - How to migrate data from Prestashop to Prestashop Using Litextension Migration Tool

  • 1. HOW TO MIGRATE DATA FROM PRESTASHOP TO PRESTASHOP If you are looking for quick, easy way to migrate data from your Prestashop to Prestashop, Litextension Migration Modules should draw your attention. It allows you to migrate products, categories, attributes, customers, password, orders and other data from Prestashop to Prestashop. The process is straightforward and requires no technical knowledge.
  • 2. 1. PREPARATION For Source Store:  Please ensure you have the right permission to upload files into your Source Store  It must not block access from Target Store to the connector. Source Store can operate normally during migration as it requires a very limited resource for the process. For Target Store:  Target Store should be placed in a stable hosting or in localhost.  PHP Curl must be enabled.  PHP Fopen (allow_url_fopen) must be On.  It also must not block connection to Source Store.  Webserver (mostly apache) should have full permission to write on /img folder.  Demo mode on backend should be turned off
  • 3. It is strongly recommended to backup Magento Target Store first.
  • 4. 2. SETUP After downloading the product zip file from our Store, please extract it into a folder. The module consists of two main parts: Prestashop Data Migration Module (“leCartMigration” folder) and Source Cart Connector (“prestashop_connector” folder) 2.1 Prestashop Data Migration Module Setup Prestashop Data Migration Module is a Prestashop Module which acts like a hub at Prestashop side to receive data and import it into Prestashop database. It can be installed just like all other Prestashop Modules:  Using your FTP software, place the folder in your PrestaShop /modules folder.  Go to Back Office >> Modules.  Locate the new module in the list, scrolling down if necessary.  In the row for the new module, click Install.
  • 5. 2.2 Source Cart Connector Setup Extract “prestashop_connector” into Source Cart root folder. After finished please make sure Migration Connector can be reached at: http(s)://yourstore.com/prestashop_connector/connector. php
  • 6. You will get a message “Connector Installed” once it is installed properly. If you have any problem reaching the link please ensure you have htaccess configured correctly and the file has execution permission For security, please open connector.php, find this very first line: define('LECM_TOKEN', '123456'); And change "123456" to another string, this will be used to enter to the Migration Form (Cart Token) and acts like "password" to prevent unauthorized data access to your source store.
  • 7. 3. PLUGINS SETUP Plugins are purchased and setup separately into Prestashop Data Migration Module. They will provide additional functionalities to the tool. Normally plugins need to be customized and tweaked by LitExtension Team to fit customers requirements and will be sent to customers later on. There are a few types of plugin:  Products and Categories SEO Urls Plugin: helps migrate Products and Categories urls. Old urls will be saved in Target Prestashop Store and will be maintained to keep all current SEO ranking you have built up for years.  Custom Fields Plugin: help migrate custom fields from Source Store to Target Prestashop Store. This is useful in case customers have customized their store, for example: adding fields to database tables, and also want to migrate these fields into Prestashop Store.
  • 8.  Customer Password Plugin: special plugin which adds the ability to read passwords encrypted by Source Stores to Prestashop. All passwords are migrated over and remains encrypted, customers can login to the new shop right away without the need of resetting passwords. “Prestashop to Prestashop " tool natively supports migrating passwords and does not need this plugin. To install plugins, just copy plugin files into the instructed folder inside Cart Migration Prestashop Module. New functionalities will be enabled.
