    Cool Guide to migrate database from OpenCart to Magento - blog

    If you are looking for simple and fast solution to migrate old OpenCart to Magento, Litextension Migration tool is the best solution to move database. It allows you to migrate products, categories, attributes, customers, password, orders and even SEO URL to Magento from OpenCart. The process does not requires high technical knowledge.

    1. Preparation
    For Source Store:
    - Please ensure you have the right permission to your Source Store. 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 must be On.
    - It also must not block connection to Source Store.
    - Webserver should have full permission to write on /media folder.
    It is strongly recommended to backup Magento Target Store first.

    2. Setup
    After downloading the product zip file from our Store, please extract it into a folder. The module consists of two main parts: Cart Migration Magento Module (“app” and “skin” folder) and Source Cart Connector ("magento_connector" folder)

    2.1 Cart Migration Magento Module Setup
    Magento Data Migration Module is a Magento Module which acts like a hub at Magento side to receive data and import it into Magento database. It can be installed just like all other Magento Modules, please follow our general Installation Guide:
    http://litextension.com/docs/litexte...tion_guide.pdf

    2.2 Source Cart Connector Setup
    Extract “Magento_connector” into Source Cart root folder. After finished please make sure Migration Connector can be reached at: http(s)://yourstore.com/magento_connector/connector.php

    After finished please make sure Migration Connector can be reached at: http(s)://yourstore.com/magento_connector/connector.php

    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.

    3. Migration
    Please login your Magento Target Store backend, select Cart Service Migration > Migration
    The migration will go through 3 simple steps. Just hit “Next” when you finish one step to advance.

    3.1 Migration Step 1: Source Cart Configuration

    Root Category: the category of current Magento store to import all source cart categories into.
    Product Attribute Set: select an Attribute Set which is used to import products, all necessary attributes in migration process will be created in to this set.
    Languages Mapping: If your Source Cart is multilingual, corresponding languages should be available in Target Magento Store. You may need to create additional languages in Magento Store to avoid data loss.
    Currencies Mapping: Assign Source Cart currencies to proper Target Magento Store currencies. Creating currencies in Target Magento Store may be needed.
    Orders Status Mapping: Assign Source Cart order statuses to proper Target Magento Store order statuses. Creating additional order statues in Target Magento Store may be needed.
    Entities to Migrate: select all entities to migrate or just a part of them.

    3.4 Migration Step 3: Migration

    The migration will take place automatically in this final step. In order for it to progress, you should not close your browser.
    After the migration is completed, click on “Clear Cache and ReIndex Data” to finish. If you don’t want to run it right here or it returns false here, you can do that manually in System > Cache Management and System > Index Management


    4. Migration Resuming

    When a problem occurring on the migration process, Cart Migration Module provide the ability to resume the process in two ways:

    - Automatically resume on the spot: the tool will automatically resume after a failure until all data is imported.
    - Manually resume: you can refresh the page to go back to Step 1 and click on “Resume”, this is helpful when you want to temporarily stop migration and resume when you want to.

    Magento is the big e-commerce platform that offers lots of features in terms of design and layout that allow users to build and customize your website as you want. OpenCart’s flexibility is pretty limited. According to Google Planner, there have been approximately 2000 search to export OpenCart to Magento per month. They implement about 100 orders to import products from OpenCart to Magento each month. (Source: http://magentoexpertforum.com/showth...ata-to-Magento)

    If you have necessary to export products from opencart to magento, you should contact migration experts such as LitExtension, Cart migration... to make it now.

    Best wishes,

    OpenCart is a free solution for your business. Because of its light weight, it is only necessary to pay a little for a web hosting package, and then no license is needed, download and modifications are available. So, OpenCart is really right choice for start-up or small scale online store. Regarding Magento, there are more options to choose. Depending on your demands, you can use Magento Community (free of charge, for small stores) or Magento Enterprise Edition ($18,000 annually, for larger enterprises). Whether free or commercial, Magento requires license to guarantee confidence for users.
