MySQL Import & Export
Posted on 2003-11-22
In my client side, they are using different versions of software products in various places. They are using Same/Different MySQL versions depending upon the different versions of software products. The database schema structures may be differed in all versions of software products. They want to convert into common latest release of software product. So the target version is fixed now. So the target database schema structure also fixed now. Now i need to transfer data from all the previous versions into latest version. What my problem is.... The previous versions of all database table structures are differed depending upon the versions(not a database version). Ultimately the latest version database schema structure also differed. How can i transfer the data from previous versions (each version differs with table structure) into latest version without any problems. Which will be the best way to transfer data between previous versions & latest version?
What my idea is... First I may export data into csv/text files from previous versions & import data into MySQL DB from text files. But the problem is... the previous versions all differed with schema structures.
1. What will be the best way to transfer datas from different previous versions into latest version?
2. All previous versions of schema structures is having BLOB data types also. Is it make any problem to transfer datas from previous versions into latest version?
Waiting for valuable replies.
