Welcome screen

Connection to PostgreSQL

List on the left shows all the databases which can be filled with your source database data. Select the one you need and fill-in required parameters.

We will choose PostgreSQL from the list of available source database engines. Connecting to Postgres is straightforward - we need to specify server name/IP, username, password and database name.

Connection to MySQL

List on the left shows all the databases which can be filled with your source database data. Select the one you need and fill-in required parameters.

We will choose MySQL from the source database engines list. As our MySQL server is on the local machine and we have full privileges, we will simply choose a database from the dropdown menu.

Start the conversion

All source tables are selected for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need.

Click the Copy your database button to get started.
