I have .FRM, .MYD and .MYI files from a MySQL (version 3.23 I think) database from back in the early 2000's. I managed to get the files into a Windows installation of 3.23 and then dump it, however I can't get it into a version 4.0 installation. I've been trying to migrate it from one version to another to another, however every step causes another issue, whether with the installation of an old version, or changes in reserved words, etc.
Is there anything out there to simplify this process? Any thoughts on how I can bring the data files to current compatibility? My end goal is to get it all into a PostgreSQL database.
To reiterate, all I have are the data files and only MYD, MYI, FRM. I don't actually have a working installation from which to run queries. Even the Windows install I managed to get up and running seemed to pose challenges.
