My server is working on Ubuntu with PostgreSQL 8.4 and the development machine I'm using has Debian Lenny with PostgreSQL 8.3. My machine can't be upgraded to PostgreSQL 8.4 and I need to restore a dump file from my server.
The dump sentence I used was:
pg_dump -i -h localhost -p 5432 -U postgres -F c -b -v -f "/home/damian/backups/mybase.backup" mybase
To restore I'm using:
pg_restore -i -h localhost -p 5432 -U postgres -d mybase -v "/home/damian/backups/mybase.backup"
How can I restore a dump file from a newer version of PostgreSQL into an older version of PostgreSQL?
Thanks for any help in advance.
Edit: I tried to use a different parameter in the option -F, this time I tried to make a dump file in plain text but some of the information didn't restore correctly, how can I solve this?
Edit: I thought the problem was the encoding my database was using but I changed it to UTF8 -which is my dump file encoding- but I got the same error as before:
error: syntax error at or near Â«1Â» LINE 1: 1 TELÃFONO NÃMERO TELEFÃNICO MEDIANTE EL CUAL SE PUEDE ESTAB...
I'm really lost at what is causing these errors.
