Quick Launch

Once you stored conversion settings into profile you can run the program in Quick Launch mode. Just launch Windows Explorer and double-click on the profile description (.s2p) file with left mouse button. This will cause MySQL to PostgreSQL wizard to launch conversion loading the necessary settings from the specified profile. Then you will be taken right to the screen with progress of conversion without entering all conversion settings.


MySQL to PostgreSQL converter implements synchronization as combination of insert MySQL records that are missing in PostgreSQL table and update existing PostgreSQL records with MySQL data. For synchronization purpose source and destination tables must have identical structures and primary key or unique index defined.

If you need more options to configure the synchronization or need to reduce duration of the process via "incremental" technique, take a look at MySQL-PostgreSQL Sync, special product to synchronize MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.


MySQL-to-PostgreSQL converts about 90% of syntax constructions involved into MySQL "CREATE VIEW" statements. Some of the conversion rules are described into this whitepaper.

PostgreSQL script file

MySQL to PostgreSQL converter allows users to migrate MySQL database into PostgreSQL format even when there is no connection to PostgreSQL server available for some reason. Following this way, the program converts MySQL data into a local PostgreSQL script file instead of migrating it to PostgreSQL server directly. The resulting file contains PostgreSQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into PostgreSQL database.
