# Sync the sql files in the sync folder
# The files in the {vvv-dir}/database/sync/ directory should be created by
# mysqldump or some other export process that generates a full set of SQL commands
# to create the necessary tables and data required by a database.
# For a sync to work properly, the SQL file should be named `db_name.sql` in which
# `db_name` matches the name of a database already created in {vvv-dir}/database/init-custom.sql
# or {vvv-dir}/database/init.sql.
# If a filename does not match an existing database, a database will be created using the
# filename as the database name and the sql file imported into that database.
# If tables already exist for a database, the new sql file will overwrite the current tables
# in the database.
# Move into the sync directory (and create it if it doesn't exist)
