Upgrade to Magento 2 for the Conway Shield online shop
Due to Magento 1.x support expiration we were asked for the migration to Magento 2.
How to upgrade Magento 1 to Magento 2?
There were a few steps:
- the new theme design – we worked with their creative agency on the designs and built a new theme.
- the data migration – The major work was linked with the data migration and some custom extensions. We also migrated the Shield builder and Pet tag builder – our custom configurators.
- the extensions and custom plugins migration
- a new hosting and security setup
During the project, we also added security patches and upgraded Magento shop extensions a few times till the launch date on January 3, 2021.
