I need some test data for a MySQL utility that I am creating. Does anybody know where I can find one that has a similiar (if not more) amount of data as Northwind for SQL Server?
This is an answer for about 4 years ago and links were dead because of time, I’ll put new links as soon as I find some.
4- more info
and a suggestion from mindplay.dk:
5- Northwind (schema+data, as provided by mnk below)
You may download it from here:
One option would be to export the actual Northwind DB to MySQL. http://www.geeksengine.com/article/export-access-to-mysql.html
FlightStats seems to be another one you could use: http://flightstats.us/about.php
The purpose of this application is to demonstrate MySQL 4.1 and some of its new and more advanced features. As MySQL matures, it is the hope that this application will also mature. Currently, the following features are used in some meaningful way:
- Subqueries in the FROM clause
- Query cache
Here’s a version of Northwind for MySQL on GitHub. The column names have been slightly altered to fit the MySQL standard.
Yes. Can be found here, for instance.
There is a sample database provided by MySQL: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/employee/en/index.html
I have tested quite all the dumps available in this thread with latest MariaDB but all of them were returning warnings or errors
searching out there I have found this
so far this is the unique Northwind for MariaDB MySQL that works like a charm
no errors, no warnings,
I link it since it is not listed in this thread
There’s a link at the beginning of the article where you can grab an
SQL script with structure and data:
