Moving From ASP > PHP Ecart 4 to 5?

So now I'm considering getting out of this "vintage" language (ASP) and moving to PHP with PowerStore. I've been dreading this move for years but things are simply getting too challenging now that I'm trying to connect up to a payment gateway with shipping quotes.

1) You wold need to change the links that point to the old asp pages to point to the new php pages instead.

I've looked at NavCat which is a tool that works pretty good for transferring data but I lost my motivation to continue as I moved into more pressing projects.
