Hello,
I have an eshop built it with RedShop 1.3.3 and Joomla 2.5.28.
The eshop has 2000 products, 60 categories and 1050 customers.
I want to migrate it to Joomla and Hikashop (last versions)
What is the best way to do it without losing all these datas (products, categories, customers)?

Hi,

HikaShop has a migration tool in the menu Products>Import, under the RedShop import tab.
It can import everything.
Now RedShop was not used a lot and so not many people migrated with it so there might be some issues with your version of RedShop.
The best is to first make a copy of your website and install the latest version of HikaShop on it. Then, try the import tool and see what you get.

If that goes well, you can do it on your live website, move to HikaShop, and then update your Joomla to the latest version since HikaShop's latest version is compatible with both Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.x.

Hi Nicolas,
I follow your instructions but after Import Manufactures the process ends with errors.
What to do?

Hi,

What do you mean ?
I don't see any error messages on your screenshots.
Sure, there is a mis counting on the manufacturer result display but that's not a problem, you can ignore that and just press next to continue the process.

Hi Nicolas
After the last screenshot, I press the Next button but nothing happens (it refresh the pages but nothing is changed).

So, I repeated the import procedure (before I restored the DB) with Joomla's Debug System on.
Now after the Manufactures' import I get the following message (see attachment):

"Internal Server Error. The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request....."

Thanks.
Makis

P.S.
Server configuration (5.5.56-MariaDB, PHP 5.6.25, Apache/2.4.6), installed HikaSkop Business 3.2.1

Hi,

I'm not sure why it does that, but for now, add the line:
return true;
after the line:
echo '<p '.$this->titlefont.'><span'.$this->titlestyle.'>Step 3 :</span> Import Manufacturers</p>';
in the file administrator/components/com_hikashop/helpers/import/reds.php
That will skip the manufacturers and it should help you finish the import process.
