994Strategy for importing SQLite3 Database into MySQL
I am surprised that there is not a simple import function in mysql or phpMyAdmin, I did the following:
- In SQLite3, export tables as CSV
- In phpMyAdmin, create DB, and import table as CSV
Make sure you check the box that converst the first line into the table structure.
Table Size/Execution Time Limit
When importing a larger table (in my case ~300M), the phpMyAdmin was complaining about memory (which I fixed), but then the script time out.
Solution? Import directly from
Open the XAMPP mysql binary:
cd /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin ./mysql -u root -p
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE '/path/to/table.csv' INTO TABLE mydb.mytable FIELDS TERMINATED BY ',' ENCLOSED BY '"' LINES TERMINATED BY '\n' IGNORE 1 LINES;
(Line breaks are added for legibility.)
- mydb.mytable are mydb name and mytable table
IGNORE 1 LINESignores the first line with the headers
