SEF url's migration - Virtuemart - Joomla - Artio SEF
« on: March 31, 2017, 01:28:52 am »
Hi,

We have a old website that's running on Joomla 1.0, Virtuemart 1.1 + Artio SEF

We have a lot of custom URL's and want to migrate all to the newer version
Joomla 3.6.5, Virtuemart 3 + ARtioSEF 4.10.

The problem is that the non-SEF url's of virtuemart have been changed (layouts and all) and we need to move everything keep the same SEF url's.

Anyone with experience in Joomla + Virtuemart + SEF url's would know what to do.

the site has around 100+ categories and around 3000+ products.

I had a similar problem and the only solution I found was to move the old site to a subdirectory.
Then I wrote several .htaccess rules to redirect old URLs to new ones.
Finally I have a catch-all rule in .htaccess to redirect all 404s to the corresponding page on old site because most page-not-found are actually google search results pointing to the old version.

Seems a lot of work but with a few well written rules using regular expressions you solve 90% of the cases.
