TestLink database migration Postgress -> MySQL

Hello all!

we encountered some testlink glitches on our production server using the postgres database as well as issues with version updates. We have a sandbox to test new versions of testlink before installation. In this sandbox, we compared the installations of several previous new versions of testlink running on mysql and postgres, and concluded that developing new versions is a priority for mysql.

Would it be a good practice to migrate data from postgres database to mysql to reduce problems in the future ?
Has anyone encountered such tasks of data migration from Postgres to MYSQL ?

MySQL is not the priority, is just the default system I use.
But any time an issue is reported on Postgres, I work to fix it as soon as possible.
My advice: do not switch to MySQL if you are already comfortable with Postgres.
Just open as many tickets as needed and I will try to fix it.
