PRESTASHOP 1.7 MIGRATION PROCESS

Step 1

 

It is necessary to undertake analytical work. Primarily, we assess front end functionality by dividing webpages into blocks such as a header, a slider, a Newsletter subscription, a footer. If there are integrations, that customized the main theme, we also analyze them. Along with it, we explore the functionality of all the installed modules.

Step 2

 

When the analytical work is done, we turn to the discussion. At this stage we specify the functionality to be added. For instance, when the new stock management system is used, it is necessary to create a special module to ensure the link between the store and the system.

Step 3

 

After the discussion, we help the client to create a technical specification. Based on this document we divide the migration process into iterations or agiles with duration from one week to one month. At the end of every period, we provide the result of the work done and the report.

On average, it takes 120 hours to upgrade PrestaShop 1.6 to 1.7.
