For Change in config file first you need to know about you Magento 1 version and navigate to the folder same as Magento 1 current version. For Ex : Your current Magento 1 version and its Community Edition then you need to go to the Magento2Root/vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/ file and rename to config.xml and open and edit config.xml file.

Find following code on config file and change Magento 1 and Magento 2 host,database name, user and password..

    <database host="" name="magento1" user="root" password="pass"/>

php bin/magento migrate:settings vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/

php bin/magento migrate:data --reset vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/

Delta is used for incremental migration. Incremental migration enables you to migrate only the changes made in Magento 1 since the last time you migrated data. These changes are:

  • Data that customers added via storefront (created orders, reviews, changes in customer profiles, etc.)

  • All operations with orders in the Magento Admin panel

    php bin/magento migrate:delta vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/
