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


Hello Ian,
I am still searching.
My first thought would be, to have each user produce a clear cut backup of his total database. This would result in a lot of .db (and some .mb) files, which then are exported (via .CSV) to be filled into the respective MariaDB tables. Probably I can use pxlib (in Linux) for the extraction of the Paradox data-files. An other way, I am thinking of, could be, to use ODBC to copy an entire database from Paradox to MySQL/MariaDB. I am still searching for best practices of others, which have done such migration before.
With  kind regards

There seem to be a few scripts available for migrating from Paradox to

them are though - if you come across anything useful, feel free to
share, or to create a page on our Knowledge Base.

I am new here. I will have to migrate some hundred Paradox Databases
(on as many machines) to MariaDB. The best way to do so, would be
something like a script. My OSs are Linux (Debian) and Win7.
Is there some kind of documentation of the experience of someone, who
has migrated from Paradox to MySQL/MariaDB before? (I have googled for
days, but have not found such yet.)
With kind regards
