Can anyone tell me if I can successfully import my Categorizes, Products, Registered Customers and previous orders from my 220.127.116.11 store into a fresh new 18.104.22.168 install.
As I am running a couple of Extensions that do now support 22.214.171.124 and I will have to purchase new Extensions I figure it might be easier to just start from a fresh install of 126.96.36.199.
I just recently build an store using 188.8.131.52 and now prefer to migrate our old store to it.
Has anyone had success in importing the database from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11?
of your own Database (a clean DB is it's much 'easier' to overlook), then, you can compare
the two files, and so find the newly allocated Tables, and the re-named Tables, including their
likely also partly re-named content Variables. You then just have to rewrite the old DB Table
Names, and possibly some 'inside' Variable Names, to make 'em match OC v.3, and add the
tables and their default Content, not yet existing in your Version DB, to the one, to be used.
Or then transfer-export the existing DB Content into some Format, like Excel, and then,
export the Content into another Excel File, tabled, to match the v.3. way of doing things,
and import this new DB Content into an empty Database on the Server.
But if it's not worth the time invested, one can get a commercial Solution, they are all listed
in the OC Extension Pages, and will cost you anywhere between ~50 - ~250 US-Bucks.

I have experience doing similar to that.Has anyone had success in importing the database from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199?
What I did:
- Setup the 188.8.131.52 Instance
- Installed import/export module in 184.108.40.206 and the 220.127.116.11
- Exported product, categories, options, filters, customers to xlsx file (for 18.104.22.168)
- Exported product, categories, options, filters, customers to xlsx file (for 22.214.171.124)
- Manually copy cell data from 126.96.36.199 xlsx files to 188.8.131.52 xlsx file.
- When done, import all v184.108.40.206 xlsx file and done.
It's quite tedious, but works 100%
