We are in the early stages of planning a migration of all our VFP 9 databases to Postgresql. Our VFP dbc contains roughly 300 tables and 8GB total data. Screen replacements are likely going to be HTML5/CSS3 based and report replacements will likely be one of the open source BI reporting portals. While we know VFP very well, and we use a LOT of linux elsewhere in the company - we know very little about Postgres. We do see a lot of tutorials out there for new Postgres databases, but not much in the way of migration from VFP. We're curious to know if anyone else has gone through a similar migration that may have some advice on how to get started.
