Tracking the lead time of migration is one of the critical requirements for a successful transition to a new platform. This factor does not play an essential role for small eCommerce sites as for large projects.
Therefore, in the case of large websites, the migration process, on average, can take from several to ten months.
It is worth considering that, at the same time, you do not have to go offline for such a long time. The longest stage of the transition to a new platform is creating a backup copy of the database. After that, it is necessary to include a balancing phase, which in turn requires introducing an offline degree.
It is also essential to introduce restrictions on operations that should not be carried out during the migration period.
Exporting the contents of a database is a rather lengthy process, however, just like importing this content into a Magento 2 database. The current structure of Magento 2 allows direct data transfer from one database to another.
Usually, information about what data should be transferred from the Magento 1 database to the Magento 2 database is embedded in the corresponding configuration file. However, official support for this feature became available only in the latest versions of Magento 1, and earlier versions require manual configuration file corrections.
