Magento – Clean database dump for development purpose

cleaning database

Mangeto Database is huge and complicated, everyone knows about this truth. It’s a big obstacle for many developers who start working on a new project or grab latest changes on production server. The following procedure will help you to reduce size of production database a lot before downloading to you local environment.

Like usual, you will need to make a database dump first with this command :


mysqldump -u[user_name] -p[password] -h[host_name] [database_name] > [path_to_dump_file].sql

Then you will need to create a new temporary database and import the database dump above. try this command in your Mysql console


CREATE DATABASE [temporary_database_name] DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

Exit mysql console then you can import database with this command in terminal :


mysql -u[user_name] -p[password] -h[host_name] [temporary_database_name] < [path_to_dump_file].sql

after having database imported, log in your Mysql console again and execute this SQL script:
