I have VMart instaled on Joomla 2X. I want to migrate it to freshly installed Joomla 3X with VMart 3X.  Please instruct on procedure to perform that task.

Please mention your VirtueMart, Joomla and PHP versions when asking a question in this forum


I will try to describe how I have done that:
I have had my Joomla 2.5X with VirtueMart 2X. I did not have any additional plugins installed nor custom fields.
1. I installed Joomla 3X with VirtueMart 3X
2. UPgraded VirtueMart 2X on Joomla 2.5.X on version 3X
4. Since prefixes of databses were different I exported VMart tables, opened SQL file in my editor (Geany in my case) and replaced old prefixes with prefixes valid in Joomla 3.X and Vmart 3X .
5.  Copied VMart related images from Joomla 2.5.x to Joomla 3.x
6. Deleted VMart tables in Joomla 3.X and Imported tables with changed prefixes into Joomla 3.X
7. Fixed users used to be vendors etc. and VMArt is ready to go.
I hope someone will find this useful.
