DB export, then import


I’m developping a little application on my computer (Windows Vista). It
I did put it on my Unix server (production) and started the ruby server.
It works fine.
But of course there’s no data :).

How can I export the data from my developpement DB (local Windows) to my
production DB (distant Unix)?

Thank you!



You’ll want to refer to your databases documentation for creating a
dump and importing it.

It’s different for every kind of database. Which database server are
you using on your Vista machine?

what happened to sqldump ?

I guess I was tired yesterday, my message wasn’t very clear.
The databases I’m using are sqlite3.
So looking for “How to create a dump with sqlite3”, I fund and executed:

sqlite3 mydb > mydb.dump

Well, it worked out fine. Watching inside the mydb.dump file I realized
there’s a bunch of CREATE TABLE so I deleted them manually since I
already executed ‘rake db:migration’ on the server.

I just couldn’t finish the migration because my Unix server tells me
that I have to install sqlite3 when I’m trying to do

cat mydb.dump | sqlite3 mydb_unix.sqlite3

The strange thing is sqlite3 was supposed to be installed on the server
and the site seems to work… I’ll have to find that out.

Thanks for all the answers.


Sorry, the following line

sqlite3 mydb > mydb.dump

should be

sqlite3 mydb .dump > mydb.dump

For the rest it worked out fine for me.

This clock projects the time, date, or temp on the wall or ceiling
http://www.liangdianup.com/clocks_1.htm some people call
it a ceiling clock but I call it a digital projection clock. I got the
black one because at the time that was the only color
they had. But now they have them in black and also in white.
