    Step1: check your extension

    list out the set of extension used in your website. remove your unused extensions and also migrate data from the existing extensions.

    Step2: Prepare your Magento 2 store infrastructure ready

    Install your Magento2.x and prepare your hardware ready which meets all your system requirement.

    Install Magento data migration tool

    If in case you need not want to migrate particular extension you can make custom changes in data migration tool.

    Step 3: Begin the migration steps

    Check your network connectivity for data migration tool to connect Magento and Magento 2 database

    Identify the list of custom modules in the current version; check if the customization has an impact on core modules. If yes, those modules should be migrated on priority. Then follow with the migration of the remaining custom modules.

    stop currently running cron jobs and other activities in Magento 1 admin panel

    perform a manual copy of media file from Magento 1 to Magento 2.x store

    using Data Migration Tool upload bulk database from Magento 1 to 2.

    To migrate data from the extensions, you will have to download the Magento 2.x compatible version of the same extension.

    Reindex all Magento 2.x indexers.

    Step 4: Perform system integration testing

    Do a complete overall integration testing to make the application free from any critical issues

    Step 5: Getting prepared for go-live

    Remember, your incremental data like reviews, comments, orders placed, auto invoices raised are yet to be updated to your new Magento 2.x store.

    Once the store settings and extensions data are moved, start moving your incremental data.

    Initiate migration of the incremental updates and simultaneously check for issues as well.

    In case if you find any issues, the incremental data updates can be stopped by pressing ‘Ctrl + C’ to fix those issues and resume it back.

    Step 6: Turn off Magento 1.x and turn on Magento 2.x store

    It is time to officially end your Magento 1.x store and kick start with your Magento 2.x store.

    Turn the maintenance mode on for your Magento 1 store.

    Start Magento 2 cron job.

    Cache the pages in Magento 2 site using a caching tool of your own preference.

    – Check your Magento 2 store thoroughly

    – Change server settings directing it to Magento 2 (Magento 1.x downtime )

    – And you are live now! Your new Magento 2.x store is ready for you and users.
