Convert SQLBase Server 9 Database into MySQL 5.6 ...

Hello Everybody,

I'm looking for a proper way to convert a SQLBase Server 9 Database into a MySQL Database. The "old" SQLBase Server Version 9 based system with a native windows fronted needs to be replaced by a new web based solution. I'm massively having problem in getting the model and the data converted. I just want to do a 1:1 conversion of the model and data, but I have not the right tools and/or knowledge to do it.

Is there someone who is able to give me a hint how this should be done normally and/or is there someone who will do the job? Payed for sure.  This all is closed and valuable data, so I'm not allowed, in a first step, to post the model or data to this request. I know it doesn't makes things easier.

Best Regards
Markus Mueller-Heidelberg

P.S.: Any solution doable with a Mac is preferred, but I do have anything else (FreeBSD, Linux and Windows 7) available as well.

This is not really the proper forum to solicit for contract work - EE is more about helping you help yourself.  In that spirit...

First thing's first - I have no experience at all with SQLBase Server.  I did, however, find a handy-dandy administrator's guide, which is bound to be full of helpful information.  Keep that document close at hand - you'll likely be needing it often.

Another great resource is the SQLBase SQL Language Reference, which you will also likely need.  Page 3-136 in that reference details the UNLOAD command, which can export your database to an SQL file.  

Basically, you need to export the schema and data from the original database, and import them into MySQL.  Being unfamiliar with SQLBase, I cannot claim with any confidence that the SQL it generates will be wholly acceptable to MySQL without edits.  There may be quite a number of differences to resolve, likely to include data type definitions and general language syntax.  

I believe your next steps are to immerse yourself in the guides above, and try your hand at some minor transfers between the two systems.  If you hit any roadblocks, come back here with what you tried to do, what you expected to happen, and what actually happened, including any error messages.  We'll help you out as well as we can.

And always...  ALWAYS ...backup before doing anything.
