MySQL script to import stackexchange data dumps (as retrieved from here).

The 2014 data is available on Archive.org here: https://archive.org/details/stackexchange

The accompanying Ruby script will un-escape various XML-escaped characters that the MySQL import process fails to do.

Hi, I forked and updated this gist: https://gist.github.com/emanoelbarreiros/c164a60e98a7482cde22

There was a slight change in a column name for the table Badges in the latest dump (01/01/2016) and I am using "load data local infile" instead of "load xml infile" to avoid issues of read permissions to the files.

Hi, see my fork to import the dataset version Sept. 12, 2016 from https://archive.org/details/stackexchange.

I added some columns and changed some NOT NULLs.

Correct (non-404) URL for last comment it seems is; https://gist.github.com/enricorotundo/1e074af39d90629252a7df3fc1066397

Suggest using Body MEDIUMTEXT NULL instead of just TEXT. Only one more byte overhead, but much more space in case question or answer is longer (16 MiB instead of 64 KiB possible). LONGTEXT (4 GiB) is likely overdoing it :) even though only one more extra byte.

Two comments if you want to use this;

  1. Make sure to add --secure_file_priv= to the mysqld startup options (or secure_file_priv= in my.cnf under [mysqld])
  2. Add this to the top of the SQL file; SET @@SESSION.SQL_MODE=''; this is especially important for late 5.7 and 8.0 versions as they have the STRICT_TRANS_TABLES SQL_MODE turned on by default (and this results in 'ERROR 1263 (22004): Column set to default value; NULL supplied to NOT NULL column 'id' at row 1'. For more info, see https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/sql-mode.html#sqlmode_strict_trans_tables
