Convert PostgreSQL to MySQL.

Our DBConvert/DBSync applications are simple to use solutions that will transfer and sync your data between any PostgreSQL and MySQL Database Servers.

Using Amazon RDS / Heroku Postgres instances as a source or target may be set up easily.

With just a few steps you can import your data accurately and fast.

Software connects to local or remote PostgreSQL/ MySQL servers directly in order to copy tables, fields, primary keys, indexes, data and schemas.

These applications are able to automate the process of copying since there is features our powerful command line mode. In addition, you can use our built-in Scheduler if you need to perform database synchronizations periodically based on specific times or events.

Using PostgreSQL to MySQL conversion and synchronization tools.

When you start DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode it guides you through several steps to set up the database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to PostgreSQL source database.

If a source database requires you to log in, you can specify a user name/ password and host/ port parameters.

Connect to PostgreSQL source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to MySQL destination database.

Specifying parameters for destination database looks like the same as for source. Usually, it consists of defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to MySQL target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Every DBConvert or DBSync tool has two different databases in its name. That means any specified database from a pair can be set up as a source or destination. Besides, the same type of database may be set up both as a source or destination.

As an example, here is the list of possible migration directions with on-premises databases:

  • PostgreSQL to MySQL
  • MySQL to PostgreSQL
  • PostgreSQL to PostgreSQL
  • MySQL to MySQL

NOTE #2: Don't be confused by the fact that connections to cloud databases like Amazon RDS, Microsoft Azure SQL, Google Cloud, and Heroku are not explicitly specified in the configuration of a source or destination in the DBConvert / DBSync interface. To connect to Cloud database instances, use the same settings as you do for traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Your connections to source and target databases stay active until you close DBConvert/ DBSync application or reopen new connections on "source" and "destination" steps.

Read more about the specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Custoimzation and configuration.

At the next step, you can specify precisely which tables, fields, indices, views you want to transfer to the MySQL destination database. Just check/ uncheck the box in front of each database object you want to convert.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or set up a particular table , field, index individually when migrating data from PostgreSQL to MySQL.

Check out our articles about Custoimzation and configuration. for detailed information.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

4. Detection of potential database migration issues. Errors and Warnings

The database typically constrains certain relations on the data that cannot be violated. On the customization step, a smart error checker verifies all possible Data integrity and Referential integrity issues and highlights them, if any, before performing a migration.

DBConvert software to default tries to automatically map database types from the source PostgreSQL database to the closest equivalent of the target MySQL database types. But you can manually change data types for the whole database globally with "Global mapping" or individually for each field.

Check out Smart error checker. Errors and Warnings for more information.

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration from PostgreSQL to MySQL

Once you configure source and destination databases for migration in the previous steps, you can start the actual conversion or synchronization process.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Also, here, you can monitor the migtation/ synchronization process.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps PostgreSQL source and MySQL target database connection settings with other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\mysql2postgresqlPro\mysql2postgresqlPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications come with a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Just set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.

Requirements

  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target PostgreSQL server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file or PHP Script)
  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target MySQL server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file or PHP Script)
