Also, consider reading the article Backing up FogBugz for a detailed process on database backup using Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL.
- To help folks adopt FogBugz For Your Server (FBFYS), a few database options are offered, including MySQL, although Microsoft SQL Server is the recommended choice.
- Integration with MySQL was offered before Unicode support was adequately available, and as a result, FogBugz had to force the support in MySQL.
- Unfortunately, this means that the MySQL database uses a unique encoding mechanism, and standard database conversion tools will not convert your data correctly.
- If you are running FogBugz on MySQL and are considering switching to Microsoft SQL Server, please contact us so we can convert your database under a Professional Services contract.
