Continuity
Scalability

If for any reason the migration is interrupted (e.g. timeout) you can continue from the point it stopped. Repeat process as many times as wish. It keeps track what is already transferred.

That allow the transfer of any amount of data. No problem either you migrate 10 or 100.000.000 items. It just takes longer!

 

Selective

You already have a new site, and just need to transfer the articles, or users, or anything else? Choose what to transfer.

You may select to transfer one article, or more, or all, or all data. You also have the ability to avoid overwriting the existing data on the new site, instead assign new ids.

A very useful feature for people who install fully template's sites with sample data, or already did some job on the new site and do not wish to loose their effort.

Bring the new

Need some time to configure the new site, and meanwhile new data, like users, articles etc, are created in the old?

No problem, just rerun process before you go live and it will bring the new data. So, there is no reason to hurry to go live, or keep offline the live site.

Monitoring

Monitor real-time the process of migration (suitable for big sites) and review the stored log results.

Security

You are able to migrate with a read-only database user. Useful for outsourcing the migration process.

Remotely

You can migrate from a remote server where your live site is located, to another remote server (e.g your development environment, or local PC) where the new Joomla! site is installed.

Language

All languages are supported.
