mysql to postgres


Ever since writing that online converter (which still needs a bit of work), I have been thinking of putting up a small hands on guide to go with it. After so much of procrastinating a guide is indeed available now.

When I say hands on I mean hands on, you have to roll up your sleeves and change the code for an existing project. Of course if you are lazy you could just read through the whole thing and download the patches at the end.

I have seen quite a few migration guides that take great pains to admonish you on the mistakes they made. They are usually filled with 'why did you do it that way?' statements instead of 'let's change it like this'. Other are packed too full of theory. This guide does not fall into either of those categories.

We start off by downloading version 2.11 of the rad user manager. By the time you finish reading the article, Rad User would change from a PHP/mysql user management system to a php/mysql/postgresql one.

The 'finished product is also available for download though it has not been officiall released yet. Expect that to happen shortly.
