[Paid]Help needed with database.
« on: June 01, 2013, 05:29:49 PM »
Hello all!
I really need some serious help here.
I´ve been googling and trying for months now to get a solution to my problem.

Long story short....

I installed Smf on my synology nas at home for testing. It only supported Sqlite.
After a while I decided to get a external host.
I dident want to lose data, as several members had registered.

Now I had to convert Sqlite to Mysql, wich I dident manage.
I tried for a while, nothing worked,  but suddenly I could install  smf with Mysql settings and it worked great!

But then I realized that a file called forum_name.db kept on growing.
So what happened is that it still uses this file from sqlite and also uses Mysql.
In smf settings all data is directed to Mysql.

Now the problem is that I am always getting errors when trying to install mods and stuff, like: "Your database is out of date, please update" or simply "Error!"
I am on 2.0.4

So basicly what I need is to merge the Sqlite into existing Mysql
Because when I now point the path to Mysql I  loose a lot of data

I usually find a solution on things, but this one is hard! I am really lost here people. Please help me....
If anyone want to help I can give U access to cpanel. I am desperate   :)

Hoping for some positive answers.  :)

What data do you lose when you change the path to point to the mySQL service?

Does the MySQL database have any size?

What happens if you rename the sqllite DB?

I just realized that the forum is only using the Sqlite file. Not the Mysql at all.. If I point to the Mysql database the first time install of smf is there.

I duplicated the forum. Renaming the Sqlite.db file and changed name in rep_settings.php.
Running fine, but I still need to convert the Sqlite to a fresh Mysql database to avoid future problems.

Tried: sqlite_to_mysql.php, but when I import to Mysql it gives me this error:

Well, I will keep on answering my self as I go along.
Maybe some others can make use of this thread, or even help me :)

What I now did was:

upload and run: sqlite_to_mysql.php (Can be found here on forum)
Made a new Mysql database with same prefix as sqlite had Ex: "smf"

Imported the dump to the new mysql.
BUT... Now I have an error:

Perhaps try converting it table-by-table? I've had to do that when having upgrade issues (Like I recently found a database from a board I ran in 2007, wanted to see the posts on it, had to convert from 1.0.7 to 2.0.4. That was a fun time)

Go to phpMyAdmin and create a column "facebooklike_board_enable" in the table smf_boards.


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Well, converting from two different SQL dialects is not always straightforward.
What you are experiencing is simply due to the fact that my converter expects the destination database to have exactly the same schema as the original one.
Since in your original you have additional things (from old mods installations) there are only two paths you can follow:
1) remove the non-necessary columns/tables from your SQLite db,
2) add those columns to your MySQL db.
Since 1 requires you installing another script to edit SQLite dbs, I think it should be easier to re-create the schema in MySQL. ;)

So...
I moved my database from SQlite 2.1 to MYsql following whats been discussed in this thread.
Only issue, well for me beeing Norwegian, a big issue, is that some letter is the vocabulary shows as ? (Æ Ø Å)
Other than that, Simple Portal wount install.

Anyway, I am happy with the result.

Thank for the support emanuele   :)

A quick question just to be sure: when you installed the mysql version, did you set it UTF8 or not?
