Our API uses a .MDF and .LDF file as input. The .MDF file is the Microsoft SQL Server database file that contains the data and the .LDF file is the log file. If you closed your database in a clean way, you only need the .MDF file. If you database was not properly closed, you need the .MDF and the related .LDF file (for example test.mdf and test_log.ldf).
Max file size for web uploads: 50 GB
The API will return a ZIP archive that contains a .SQL file. This .SQL is a PostgreSQL dump file and can be restored into your PostgreSQL installation.
Download the RebaseData client Java tool . To convert your database using RebaseData, run the following command:
java -jar client-0.0.5.jar convert --output-format=postgresql database.mdf output-dir/
Replace database.mdf with the path to the database you want to convert.
The file output.zip will contain a PostgreSQL data.sql file with your data or the error message if something went wrong.
curl -F 'firstname.lastname@example.org' 'https://www.rebasedata.com/api/v1/convert?outputFormat=postgresql&errorResponse=zip' -o output.zip
The conversion process takes between 15 seconds and multiple minutes. It depends on the size of the database.
