editor's review





DBF to MySQL is a lightweight Windows application developed to help you migrate DBF database content to MySQL server using straightforward actions. The utility works with all versions of Unix and Windows MySQL servers.

Wizard-like GUI

The tool integrates a wizard that offers guidance throughout the file transfer process. This approach comes in handy especially for less experienced users, as they are shown step-by-step how to tweak the dedicated parameters.

Advanced users by bypass the configuration wizard and control the program via the command-line console.

Two conversion scenarios

DBF to MySQL gives you the possibility to choose between two conversion options, namely move data to MySQL server directly or store the information in a dump file.

If you opt for a direct saving mode to MySQL, the application lets you select the access mode (local or remote), set up authentication parameters (username and password), as well as configure remote connections by providing details about the host (network name or IP address) and port number.

In case you want to export data to a dump file, you are allowed to pick the MySQL server version (new: 4.1 or higher or old: before 4.1), select the line breaks (MS Windows or Unix style), and insert ‘create database’ and ‘create table’ statements, as well as comments.

You are required to provide the source folder (DBF database directory) and destination directory where the dump file is stored. In addition, you can make the utility convert only table definitions, skip deleted records from the conversion process, convert logical values, and pick the encoding type.

Last but not least, you are empowered to select the DBF files that you want to convert to MySQL format and export DBF data to new database or overwrite the contents of an existing MySQL database.

An efficient migration tool for DBF databases to MySQL server

To sum things up, DBF to MySQL delivers a straightforward approach for helping you migrate DBF databases to MySQL server, and can be mastered by all types of users, be they rookies or professionals.
