Migrate your MySQL database to Northflank

You can import your existing MySQL database to Northflank by creating and uploading a dump of your database, or providing a connection string to your existing database.

Imports will be more reliable if the database you are importing to is the same, or a newer, version of MySQL as the source database you are exporting from.

If you have more than one database to import from the same MySQL instance you should use the connection string method, which will import all the databases the given user has access to.


Both methods of importing a database will erase all existing user databases in the Northflank addon, if there are any.

You should first create a Northflank MySQL addon
