I'm not a MySQL fun, so some troubles with MySQL database (MyISAM data corruption and too slow InnoDB) force migration of three existing Drupal 6 sites from MySQL to PostgreSQL. Since Drupal 6.2 some PgSQL-related bugs (sample) in core modules has been fixed, so I have a try.
Drupal 6.5 and PostgreSQL 8.3 compatibility
Drupal Core Modules
I've installed clean Drupal 6.5 on top of PostgreSQL 8.3.3 (with UTF8 database encoding) and played with it a lot. There is no heavy troubles, only minor ones:Read more
I'm working on a migration path from the video module to the filefield module (using jQuery Media for playback). In terms of database language, I'm a Filemaker hack so I'm seriously struggling with many aspects of mysql, but I think I have laid out a good plan for attack and have a really good starting point to work from. I'm basically adapting a migration script that Moshe built for us at CCTV to migrate from the Image module to Imagefield.Read more
Hey all, as I mentioned last night at the LA Drupal group I'm trying to move a Drupal install from a Windows XP box to a Linux box (Fedora Core 8). I'm working in the command line and I've done a mysqldump to a .sql file which I then move to the Fedora box. Both are running the same version of MySQL but as soon as I load the data into the database I get 404 errors when I try to hit the site.
As many of you mentioned last night there should be no issue in moving a database. I'm sure I'm doing something else wrong.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

I got your email from Linda Setchell at Eggplant Active Media. I work for a small non-profit in NYC called Labor Notes. We publish a monthly magazine for grassroots labor activists and have been working on redesigning our very old website to run on Drupal. We are almost done, but need to find someone who can help us take our site (which as far as I can tell is almost completely finished) and migrate it off the Eggplant test site and onto Site5 where we are going to host it. (The need kinda goes hand-in-hand with by Arthur Foelsche leaving Eggplant.)Read more
I've been musing about the possibility of building a module for mass importing contents from existing sites, as an aid for migration to Drupal. I came across a potential model, an import utility for the CMS SAPID, http://sapid.sourceforge.net/en/doc/import/, code at http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sapid/migrator.tar.gz?download. The approach combines web crawling with regular expression-based data extraction. Users input the wrapping code patterns to search for, e.g., main content might be wrapped in and or maybe a div with a given class name.Read more
