Re: Is there something like "best practices" to migrate from Paradox to MariaDB?


Hi Hugo

You might want to look at something like Talends Data Integration Tool -
You should be able to use either the Generic JDBC or ODBC connector to
connect to the paradox data and then the MySQL Connection works very well
with mySQL drivers to connect to the  Mariadb database.

Well worth the investment of time and the free tool will let you do this
