How do I make my MySQL database compatible with the version you provide?
If your version of MySQL is a later release than ours, you can export the database to make it compatible with ours. To do this you would run the below command from the command prompt on your server.
mysqldump --compatible=mysql40 -udb_USERNAME -pdb_PASSWORD db_name > FILENAME
Note: Replace db_name, db_USERNAME, db_PASSWORD, & FILENAME with the name of the database, the user, the password, and the file name, respectively.
