Magento Migration

Hello friends,

While working with magento store, sometimes we required the migration of our magento store from one to another domain.

At that time we may need to change our store’s database name, its username, its password and store’s url. It means we have to reconfigure our magento store.

So here we are discussing the steps of magento migration.

Step1: Take a backup of your magento store database.

Step2: Take a backup of your magento store file structure.

Step3: Go to the phpmyadmin of your new domain server. Here create a database, its user and password. And restore the database backup in the created one.

Step4: Go to the file manager of your new domain server, and restore the file structure.

Step5: Now in phpmyadmin of your new domain server open the restored database. Open the “core_config_data” table and edit the values of “web/unsecure/base_url” and “web/secure/base_url” according to your store’s configuration.

Step6: Open the “/app/etc/local.xml” and put the values in it according to your new configuration.


<host><![CDATA[your server’s host name]]></host>

<username><![CDATA[database user name]]></username>

<password><![CDATA[database password]]></password>

<dbname><![CDATA[database name]]></dbname>

Hope this will help you.

Thanks.
