I'm writing to this address because the links for mail lists fail and
said to write here if looking for docs and such...
I have some problem that is keeping me from being able to use
pg_dump or pg_dumpall on a 6.4 version. What I have found mentioned
about the error indicates either that my pg_xxxx applications are
the wrong versions for the database (very possible) or that there
is a problem with one or more table values (possibly but all databases
and tables on the machine fail to dump).
Trying to move to a 7.0 version
and simply moving the data dir from the old machine also will not seem
to work on the new...
SOOoooo - I guess I have to write my own pg_dump in order to get the
old data out --- but I don't know exactly what the format of pg_dump
and pg_dumpall might be --- nor which tables will actually be dumped
(for example, I can the the various pg_whatever tables in a base, but
I also see a bunch of tables named "regf12" and I have no idea what
those are or whether I should dump them in my pg_dump program)
Thanks for any pointers and/or docs to help me get this right -- there's
a BUNCH of data that can be lost if I cannot get it out of the old database.
Wishing you an "OOBA OOBA" 21st Century!!
