Uploading Joomla Database

mharj posted 8 years ago in General
Hello,

I would like to upload my Joomla database, but i always get an error:

SQL ERROR: You have an error in SQL Syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MYSQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'collate utf8_unicode_ci' NOT NULL Default", 'contact' varch.

I did both Import and Exports.

I am new to HEIDISQL, I need your assistance.

Sounds like an error smile

Please post a 50-line-chunk of the SQL-file here that contains this problematic line.

The above works fine for me in HeidiSQL.
Try again, perhaps you have a copy/paste error somewhere.

I guess you're trying to import that file into a server with a version below 4.1 . The mysql docs say:

mysqldocs wrote: As of MySQL 4.1, character data types (CHAR, VARCHAR, TEXT) can include CHARACTER SET and COLLATE attributes ...



Found here: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/create-table.html

Would mean that you have to either
- make the exported file 4.0-compatible
- upgrade the target server to 4.1 or above
- downgrade the source server to 4.0 or below

If you do the export with HeidiSQL you *should be able* to get a 4.0 compatible export by selecting the correct option in the pulldown "target-compatibility". I tested that by selecting "MySQL 3.x" but the collate-attribute still gets exported. So this should be fixed for HeidiSQL. In addition we should split the options "MySQL 4.0 - 5.0" into 2 options: "MySQL 4.0" and "MySQL 4.1 - 5.0".

Just posted as an issue in our bugtracker:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1685835&group_id=164593&atid=832347
ansgar posted 8 years ago
This has been fixed for HeidiSQL 3.0 (final) in this way:

If you select "MySQL 4.0" or below as target-compatibility in the dialog "Export-SQL", HeidiSQL will automatically remove COLLATE- and CHARSET-attributes for all column-specifications (when in file-mode).

The only thing you have to take care of is to know the target-version where the file will be imported. Because: in file-mode HeidiSQL is not able to predict on which server-version you will import that file, that's basically the reason why there is the target-compatibility-dropdown. If you select the correct version you shouldn't run into problems at the time you re-import that file.
