Connection error with mirgation tool

Hi, I’m looking at your migration tool to migrate from M1.7.0.2 -> 2.1.7 as I am unable to use the Magento supplied migration tool to successfully migrate the data. Having watched the video and the tool looks very good. But 🙂 After installing the lite version to test it out on products I cannot get to the initial Mysql connections page.
I have a clean install of Magento 2.17 and an empty database. That is, I have only cleaned the cache and reindexed the DB. The marketing for the module say that version 3.x no longer uses the SQLlite database but the error message when I run it seems to indicate that the lite version still has it as a requirement. Then I saw the lite version was 1.0.6. Is there a later version of the lite version?
I also saw a question/answer indicating that the lite version only works with M2.0.7. Is that still true?
I’m seeing a message that starts with the following:
CDbConnection failed to open the DB connection: could not find driver



387                 throw new CDbException('CDbConnection.connectionString cannot be empty.');
388             try
389             {
390                 Yii::trace('Opening DB connection','system.db.CDbConnection');
391                 $this->_pdo=$this->createPdoInstance();
392                 $this->initConnection($this->_pdo);

Having read the in the installed package I saw there were instructions to install the module from a git database, That also fails with:

Failed to execute git clone --mirror '[email protected]:ubertheme/module-ubdatamigrat
ion-lite.git' '/home/localadmin/.composer/cache/vcs/

Hi Richard, 
Thanks for spending time working around with our Lite version. 
It’s pity that the Lite version is available for Magento 2.0.7 only. And it has some limitations, a few to name: 

  • It is not ready for NGINX web server
  • Your Magento 2.0.7 must be a fresh installation
  • It uses old codebase and comes with limited feature sets, compared to our Pro version.

Anyway, I highly recommend you move forward with our Pro version, it will save you pretty much time.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have done a clean installed a clean M2.0.7 dropped and rebuilt the database. The first time I use the UB Data Migration lite button I get to the screen to enter the Mysaql database login info. After that screen I get the following error message. Any ideas what I have missed off?

The table "{{core_website}}" for active record class "Mage1Website" cannot be found in the database.

Hi Richard Brown,
Does your Magento1’s database has a prefix in the tables? If yes, you have to setting that in the step #1 of our tool.
In case you still can’t solve that issue. Let’s provide me the ssh credentials and web root path of your Magento2. I will check further and help you out.
