What are you trying to achieve?

I try to load sql dump (5 mb), created by mysqldump command

What do you get instead?

Db module loads not all tables


  • Codeception version: 2.2.7
  • PHP Version: PHP 7.0.14-2+deb.sury.org~trusty+1
  • Operating System: Linux vagrant-ubuntu-trusty-64 3.13.0-91-generic #
  • Installation type: Phar
class_name: AcceptanceTester
        - PhpBrowser:
            url: http://ts.vglocal/
        - \Helper\Acceptance
        - Db:
           dsn: 'mysql:host=localhost;dbname=ts_test'
           user: 'root'
           password: 'root'
           dump: tests/ts_test.sql
           populate: true

When I try to load by hands (populate: false) it works normally.

Maybe should add some extra option for Db module (e.g. unsafe: true) to load dump line by line how it presented here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19751354/how-to-import-sql-file-in-mysql-database-using-php ?


Please provide relevant parts of SQL dump - a table which is missing and surrounding tables (one before and one after missing table)

@ashgaliyev IIRC the CodeCeption SQL dump importer (that runs before each test to reset the DB) has a size limit. Over that limit the DB logic is not able to execute fast enough in preparation for the test execution.

Recommend using the SQL import for the DB structure and breaking the data into fixtures specific to each test / test group.

Could also try this when using large SQL dump files: http://codeceptionbdd.blogspot.com/2014/10/repopulation-of-database-using-mysql.html
