This is a very urgent situation.
We have a postgres 9.4 database installed on a CentOs machine.
We are trying to take a backup from a Heroku Postgres database and restore it to the database on CentOs machine.
The commands we are using:
pg_dump -Fc -h ec2-99-99-99-99.compute-1.amazonaws.com -p 5762 -U xyz -d dbname > file.dump
The dump created by pg_dump seems to be missing data from columns that have the type of binary (these columns contain images in binary format).
When we restore this backup to the database on CentOS using following command, all the images from the image i.e. binary type columns are missing:
pg_restore -d onlinedb ~/file.dump
We have to go live in the morning and are completely bummed by this unexpected issue.
\d attachments (attachments is the problem table) command:
Table "public.attachments" Column | Type | Modifiers ------------------+------------------------+----------- id | integer | not null configuration_id | integer | style | character varying(255) | file_contents | bytea |
More information: The heroku postgres database from which we are creating backup is PostgreSQL 9.2.6. The one we are restoring to is PostgreSQL 9.4.
