PostgreSQL: Bin Directory and Utilities to Perform Import

SQLWays Wizard is able to execute the import process automatically. To perform it, user should provide target database credentials and Bin Directory.

Bin Directory is a path to a folder containing command line utility of the target database (like psql.exe, sqlcmd.exe, mysql.exe and others). With the help of this utility import process is performed.

So, during the import native utility connects to the target database using database credentials and tries to create all the objects that were converted by the tool.

It is extremely important to provide correct Bin Directory if we want to make an import. If a user doesn't have the appropriate utility on their local machine, it's necessary to install the DB client for a target database.

To perform import into PostgreSQL database in the Bin directory option we need to specify a path to the folder containing psql.exe utility. By default this utility is located in the directory like: C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\[version_number]\bin\. Otherwise, you can find it in the directory specified during the installation process of PGAdmin tool.

If there is no such utility on the machine where migration process will take place, it means that you need to install the PGAdmin tool. You can download it from the PostgreSQL official website.
