How to move from MantisBT 1.2.19 to 2.18.0

I have installed a Virtual Machine from Bitnami with MantisBT version 2.18.0 pre-installed.
I like to move over everything from our Mantis version 1.2.19 into that 2.18.0 version.

Can somebody describe the steps to take to achieve this? What are the things I have to take care of or pay attention to?
Is this just a matter of importing database or do I have to do this in smaller steps because the difference in versions of Mantis is too big? (perhaps missing fields etc?)
Are there any other files than the database to move over?

Do not use any preinstalled version as the database schema of this installation is different from your old version.

This is how it works https://mantisbt.org/forums/viewtopic.p ... 034#p62034
