Hello, I would like to import the orders (with orders info and orders items) of an online shop with Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 1.1.4 to the new version of this shop which is in Joomla! 3.9.15 and VirtueMart 3.6.10. Is it possible with CSVI?
And, if yes, is there any tutorial about this?

I have attached the two csv files I can import from the online old shop so you can see the fields and fieldname used at that time.

Thanks for your help

There is no step-by-step guide on how to do this from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 3.9. The individual steps are in the Documentation section

There is more to it than just order and order items import, you will need to import users as well because the orders must be linked to users. So you are going to need in this order:

  1. Users import
  2. Orders import
  3. Order items import
You need the users to exist so you can assign the orders to the users, you need the orders to exist so you can assign the items to the orders. Most of the field names should still be the same.

Another way to do it is to upgrade the Joomla and VirtueMart version until you are at Joomla 3 and then install a clean Joomla, copy the VirtueMart database tables into the clean Joomla site and install VirtueMart on top of that.

These are just some ideas.
Kind regards,

Hi Rolan. Thank you for your answer. I already succeeded importing the users with another extension JMmigrator but it did not work for the orders. So I understood the steps to follow. First the orders (trying to match the fields with different names) and after order item. That sounds logical. I will start the investigation and work.
