LMagnus19707dYou're not a real developer until you've mastered the Access Db export's new line issue.
That brings back painful memories!
tman540437dReading this story makes me happy, and idk why :)
Goof jon bro.
I did quite close jobs in my career, i had to rescue a website that was so archaic to maintain, and no way to export the database, as there where no database (old pure html website with tens on pages). So i dig into php and ended up doing a curl and domparsing, and saved everypage in a maysql table with the linked url.
Technically, my database was html !
And eventually saved all infos and wiped the fuck out of that site, and builded a brand new on yii 1.1 (back than it was something waw)... Than injected the table ive created into the new cms ive build. And voila, the new website is here, and the old data is here, i even created a map that redirected all old urls to the new corresponding one to avoid losing seo ranking.
Back than , i was the 4th developper to try to fix the situation and was the only one who were thinking enough out of the box to find a solution, yet simple, but in the blindspot of most developers
Idk why but that motivated me to continue coding now. Thanks a lot :D
