There are already tens of articles written on how to upgrade Magento version. If you are seeking comprehensive guide that serves eCommerce store migration of custom settings as well, I request you to take a look at first source site http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/howdoi/migrate/migrate.html
In this text, typical upgradation is depicted. You don’t need to keep site offline for entire time. However, during copy of database, offline is must. Unfortunately, importing of content of database into Magento 2.0 goes slowly and eats up maximum of process time.
Before starting out, make sure
1. That you have Magento 2.0 installed on your machine without sample data in it. If you have not yet, download and install it from https://magento.com/tech-resources/download
2. That you have migration tool available at your disposal, download it from https://github.com/magento/data-migration-tool-ce It is important that migration tool should also be of version 2.x or later
composer require magento/data-migration-tool:2.0.0
Installation before initialization of actual migration process.

If you are upgrading from Magento 1.9 installation, run the following cp command:
In this file, search for the source/database and destination/database tags
Change the values of these database settings to match yours.
<database host=”localhost” name=”magento1″ user=”root”/>
<database host=”localhost” name=”magento2_migration” user=”root”/>
Write below command and press enter
php bin/magento migrate:data vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ceto-ce/your-path-migration/config.xml
Now if you check your database for the Magento 2 website, you will see that the data (products, categories, and so on) are available.
If you think something has gone out of the eyes and so you want to rerun migration, simply remove var/migration-tool-progress.lock file and re-enter above command.
- The orders (Sales | Orders)
- The products (Products | Catalog)
- The customers (Customers | All Customers)
The code of Magento 1 modules will not be available in Magento 2. Therefore, you will have to look over Magento 1 website for custom code snippets you added on top of framework, and then copy-paste-test them in Magento 2 shop.
However, as I aforementioned, points above would NOT suffice to migrate to magento 2 in fullest.
