Transferring Customers/Orders/Products, Etc. from 2.2 RC1 to 2.3.3

21 August 2013 - 09:22 PM

Ok, so I am finally deciding to do away with my old store (2.2 RC1) and do a fresh install of 2.3.3.  I am setting up the fresh install of 2.3.3 in a new directory, as a trial, to make sure everything works properly before making the hard switch.  How do I transfer all of the old orders, all of the customers and all of the products, smoothly?  I don't know much about mysql, so please speak in beginners langauge, if you give instructions.

I backed up the database on my 2.2 RC1 store and tried to restore it on 2.3.3, but it's not working.  I've never done this before, so I'm not sure what to do.  I did do quite a few add-ons to the old store.  I'm not sure if that matters or not, but just thought I would mention it.  If there is a better or easier way to upgrade, instead of a fresh install, then please let me know.  Thanks for any help that you can give!
