The second step of your X-Cart v4 based store migration to v5 is the initial data transfer.

PREREQUISITES:

  1. Make sure the migration environment is prepared as described in Step 1: Migration environment.

  2. Make sure a fresh X-Cart 5 software is installed as described in the Installation Guide.

  3. Make sure the add-on X-Cart v4 to v5 Data Migration Wizard is installed and enabled.


    The X-Cart v4 to v5 Data Migration Wizard add-on requires the Order Import add-on for correct functioning. Hence, the Order Import add-on installs automatically alongside the migration wizard installation if you did not enable it beforehand.


Initial data migration is performed with the help of the X-Cart v4 to v5 Data Migration Wizard installed on a fresh X-Cart 5 store. The data migration covers all the data specified in the guide "What Data Are Migrated?".

If you have a large database and want to get an idea of how your data will fit into a new X-Cart 5 based store without migrating the entire database, you can run a quick demo migration.

All the data migration steps are described in detail in the guides of this section.
