OK, this is all a kind of an upgrade process, which is quite feasible.
What I'd need to do is:
2 different VM 1 shops migration of user data into one completely new VM 2 shop - which is not updated from an old version, but a completely new installation.

I already managed to sort out the appropriate tables in my DB manually, but there is still an issue that does not show the users in VM.
Any suggestions of an automated tool, like a kind of a "bridge" or something?
That would be extremely helpful.

It would be helpful to have a general export-import feature of the user/shopper data for VM anyway.

Thanks for your help!

Solved. It's possible to match the tables manually in the database (needs some knowledge). However, you'd better backup first. Made a little mistake during the table matching, that's why I failed first. Now everything's fine.
Maybe someone writes a nice tool one day that does things like that quick and easy - it's just a brige necessary. Unfortunately I don't have any time to do so myself.

You can also just import all _vm_ tables of vm1 shop 1
migrate in vm2, then delete them and import the _vm_ tables of shop2 and migrate again.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
