Specify the migration scenario:
  • Move to PostgreSQL server directly - use this approach to migrate the source database to the target PostgreSQL server directly. PostgreSQL server must be launched and the user must have necessary privileges to write into database on the target server. See Connect to PostgreSQL Server section for related information.
  • Export into script file - use this approach to export MySQL database into a local script file instead of moving it to PostgreSQL server. The resulting script file contains SQL statements to create all tables, indexes, constraints and to fill tables with the data. See Import PostgreSQL script files article for related information.
