    • Initial time was spent on to document all the custom code & extensions being used in client magento 1.x  instance along with their functionality. Similarly all theme customizations on  frontend pages like Category Listing Page, Product Detail page were documented. Our developers have analysed those in detail and came up with plan and process to do the upgrade. In summary these activities were performed to achieve a smooth & successful upgrade.
    • Database: This is the first step, Using Migration tool we upgraded the Magento 1.x Database to Magento 2 and connected this new Magento Upgraded DB with Magento 2 filesystem.
