PostgreSQL to MySQL

[Documentation]  [Release Notes]  [Download]  [Buy]
Latest version 4.3 released 02/12/2024

PostgreSQL-to-MySQL is a program to migrate PostgreSQL databases to MySQL, MariaDB or Percona server. Depending on your privileges on the target server you can export PostgreSQL data into new database or overwrite the contents of an existing MySQL database. The program has high performance due to direct connection to data source and destination databases (it does not use ODBC or any other middleware software). Command line support allows to script, automate and schedule the conversion process.

Virtual Server users option

If you are using Virtual Server hosting you probably have no sufficient privileges to create new databases on the target MySQL server. For this case we recommend the following approach:

  1. ask your Virtual Server administrator to create blank database for you
  2. run PostgreSQL-to-MySQL and select this database as the conversion target
  3. click "Yes" when you will be asked if you'd like to overwrite existing MySQL database

When you complete these steps, the entire contents of the source PostgreSQL database will be imported into the specified MySQL database.


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

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

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 (.p2s) file with left mouse button. This will cause PostgreSQL-to-MySQL 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 dump file

PostgreSQL-to-MySQL converter allows users to perform deferred conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program stores the contents of the source database into a local dump file instead of moving it to MySQL server directly. The resulting file contains MySQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into MySQL database.

Try before you buy

Still not sure the program fits your needs? Try free demo version with limited features. It will allow you to convert only 50 records for each database table, it does NOT convert queries/views and foreign keys. Test the quality of the demo and come back to place an order if satisfied with the results.
