PostgreSQL to MySQL

Latest version 2.5.1 released 05/08/2017

PostgreSQL-to-MySQL is a program to migrate PostgreSQL databases to MySQL server. Depending on your privileges on the target MySQL server you can export PostgreSQL data into new database or overwrite the contents of an existing MySQL database. The program has high performance due to direct connection to data source and destination databases (it does not use ODBC or any other middleware software). Command line support allows to script, automate and schedule the conversion process.

Virtual Server users option

If you are using Virtual Server hosting you probably have no sufficient privileges to create new databases on the target MySQL server. For this case we recommend the following approach:

  1. ask your Virtual Server administrator to create blank database for you
  2. run PostgreSQL-to-MySQL and select this database as the conversion target
  3. click "Yes" when you will be asked if you'd like to overwrite existing MySQL database

When you complete these steps, the entire contents of the source PostgreSQL database will be imported into the specified MySQL database.

MySQL script file

PostgreSQL-to-MySQL converter allows users to perform deferred conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program stores the contents of the source database into a local dump file instead of moving it to MySQL server directly. The resulting file contains MySQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into MySQL database.

Try before you buy

Still not sure the program fits your needs? Try free demo version with limited features. It will allow you to convert only five records for each database table, it does NOT convert queries/views and foreign keys. Test the quality of the demo and come back to place an order if satisfied with the results.
