Hello to all.

Can be possible to develop some application that facilitates the migration from Oscommerce?
In the next future.

(many thanks, excuse my poor english)

UPDATE: Ups! sorry Zen Cart and CRE Loaded too!

I’m sure it will happen once Magento is stabilized.  There are tons of people who want to make the move.

It will be interesting to see how a migration works because Magento does some one off stuff with their products and attributes.

Import product data feeds?  What do you mean by that?

Creating the feeds for Google (I’m not aware of a Product Search feed, I thought the Base feed fed both) will be very easy.  I’ve created quite a few from scratch in only a few hours of work.

Thanks

Will you work on the basis of the Cre Loaded version too since this version propose almost the same database structure except for small changes (for instance Cre loaded offers the possibility to add title, description and keywords (meta)

How advanced is now the migration tool from OSCommerce to Magento? (% of completion?)

Would it be possible to make available the script at its current state?
I’m even prepared to pay a developer to complete it… and then provide the script back to the community.

Would anyone there join me in financing the completion of the migration tool?

I want to start testing my shop and my products in Magento beta so it is ready to go live as soon as the release version is ready.

(where can I find the database structure for Magento so I can start comparing, must be somewhere but I haven’t found it yet)

If you can wait a few more weeks, the migration tool should do the trick. It won’t be ready for a few weeks.

What kind of information are you planning on migrating in your osCommerce mirgration tool?  I realize there are probably as many configurations for osCommerce as there are installations of it.  Are you planning on moving only products and categories or are you also planning on moving customers and order history?

Would there be any plans for moving multi-store installations as well.  I can understand the difficulty in doing this but it seems like with your multi-store implementation it should at least be possible.  I’m sure there are many people waiting on any update to this.  (the general migration tool, there probably aren’t as many looking for a multi-store migration.)

For the osCommerce migration tool we are planning on importing products, categories and customers. Order history is a bit more tricky so we are looking at having some archive order table to display old orders. These orders will not be editable in any way in Magento.

Thanks

Would that also include their passwords?

@i960: yes, password hashes will be transferred, and they would be validated using OSCommerce password hash algorithm.

Awesome!  We get a lot of repeat customers, and I really do not want to tell them all that they have to create a new password.

you Magento guys are saying all the right things.

Can’t wait to see the final result, but if you make it easy for osCommerce stores to migrate...we will migrate smile

Coming from X-Cart, I’d say, forgot the import for now, focus on the codebase and get it stable, import tools can come later on after the fact… Surely most of us here know how to do a MySQL export/import via CSV…
