remote database

If i were to import data from our livesite that is located on another server, will this cause the live site  to have any issues?
please explain.
Currently i cloned my live site and setup migration from there but when we need to go live what will be the best way to migration?
notes: since the all of the database settings will be the same, will delta work by changing the server location? will it know the incremental change points?

Hi there, 

We’d like to answer your questions below:

If i were to import data from our live site that is located on another server, will this cause the live site  to have any issues?

It’s possible to connect directly to your live Magento 1 database, our migration tool just read-only which causes no change to your M1 database. Please note it’s a better option in terms of performance if you connect directly to your databases in the same MySQL server rather than via remote connection. 

Currently i cloned my live site and setup migration from there but when we need to go live what will be the best way to migration?

Most of our users follow this option -- migrating from a cloned instance of the live site. In this case, you should proceed the delta migration (make sure you update your cloned instance with the latest M1 dump database) before your instance goes live. 

since the all of the database settings will be the same, will delta work by changing the server location? will it know the incremental change points?

If you proceed the first migration from a cloned instance, you need to re-dump the latest database of your Magento 1’s live site and then import it into the Magento 1 database instance where our tool worked in your first data migration. Then, you can start delta migration with the same steps as mentioned above.
 
PS. With the clarification above, we assumed that your M1 and M2 are on the same server. If they are on a different servers at the time you run the delta migration, please contact us before you proceed. Based on your specific context, we will let you know if any additional configurations will be needed.

 
Hope that helps.
