I'm trying to do a migration of an old (and full of nodes and comments) D7 site, to a Drupal 8 brand new one.

In order to import only the contents, I'm trying to do the migration from a csv file (with the stuff that I've exported using views).

My question is, how to set the source? Full path? I'm using a test csv file and I put it at the root folder, at the same place where the index.php file is.

I tried this:

  plugin: csv
  path: 'http://www.example.com/myfile.csv'

And this:

  plugin: csv
  path: '/myfile.csv'

(with and without the slash)

I keep receiving this error when I try to run the migration script:

An AJAX HTTP error occurred.
HTTP Result Code: 500
Debugging information follows.
Path: /batch?id=20&op=do_nojs&op=do
StatusText: Internal Server Error
ResponseText: The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.

What should I do?

    put source as public://csv/test.csv and sites default make a folder named csv and place the file inside that Apr 3 '18 at 5:16

Please add the file as :

  plugin: csv
  path: 'public://csv/test.csv'

And under sites/default make a folder named as csv and place the file inside that. It will work.
