Doing this for my future ref as well as assisting those who're still in need of a working approach for both joomla and virtuemart migration Step0: Do this migration on a test site, before moving it to a live site after testing.
Step1: To reduce complication, I have strip Joomla of all unnecessary extension and kept only VM and Akeeba Backup in place, and selected default template that comes with Joomla original install. Akeeba Backup Step2: Patch Joomla to latest 1. You will notice that VM is not migrated to the new jupgrade folder, it is ok at this stage not seeing your VM in the new Joomla 2.
This image move is required before VM2.
If you have done the migration and did not see the image related to the product, doing the migration again will not help fix it. Todd Qualls Beginner Posts: 8. This will be a helpful guide for some who have a simple product offering, but others should be aware that if you have products in your store that used product "attributes" or "child products" in VM1, none of that data is migrated to VM2. It has to be recreated manually. If you have hundreds of products to migrate, this will be a major undertaking.

Your link for the VM upgrade tut is pointing to a deleted blog entry on Dash Help. Uninstall all old VirtueMart extensions components and modules.
You could just disable or unpublish the extensions, but I found that this confused me once I got the new version of VM installed. I found it hard to tell which version of the modules were new and which were old. Check the box for "Enable database Update tools".
VirtueMart & Joomla! - The Future of eCommerce
Choose "Everything" and click "Start Migration". After the migration, before doing anything else, make sure that your default Joomla administrative user is identified as a vendor no other shop configuration will be possible until you do this as detailed here.
Go to the Shop accordion and click on "Shop". Some of your shop info from the old VM version will be filled in, but you must choose your default currency and fill in all required fields on the "Additional Information" tab. Once you have done all of this, click save.
If all went well and you performed all of the steps above, you should now be able to browse your live site and VirtueMart shop. I went back and deleted those backup copies of the old VM component folders from before the migration. There's no sense in cluttering up our fresh new site.

Product Setup Configure Virtuemart 2.0 in Joomla 2.0 PART 1
I happen to have exactly the issue described in this thread, a need for joomla 1. Any ideas where I would find a trusted economical source of help to accomplish such a task? There are also currently none available for commercial or non-commercial use, at least none that I could find.
This means that unless you know code and can write your own plugins, you cannot simply input your info like before and expect it to work. It doesn't. It can't, because they have not written them yet. Your PS is a long time out of date now as there are plenty of plugins for VM2 now available and many more are being developed as our 3rd party developers recognise a need.
Brunus Beginner Posts: 7. Hi there. Thanks for this guide. I did have problems with the Virtuemart package 2. I had to put in in a temp directory on the server to migrate and to unzip it.
Getting the files
To solve the migration problem, and to do thing cleanely I did : - Migrate Joomla 1. I had and error : Table userinfos check failed, spotting a problem on a ST adress Exept this, all seems to been migrated cleanely.
I realy think that migrating from a clean directory, and not with an administrator opened in the jupgrade folder inside the site tree is realy much better to avoid problems. I did not do it and when I'm activating the langage pack for the site and for administrator then the categories and products are not anymore displayed both in frontend and backend.
I think it's because cotegories and products Virtuemart tables are linked to langage pack.
Installation of VirtueMart
Would it possible at all to completely uninstall the current version of VirtueMart and just install the new version? Would this be a viable way around having to jump through the update and migrate hoops? Yeah, having a heck of a time with this. I followed all the steps here and in other migration posts.
I get to the migration part and fail. Can't save the record with no Sef Alias.
Any ideas? Seriously, any ideas at all? Quote from: dagnome on September 08, , am. I have managed the migration of all products but non of the images are being installed.
