Trac Importer


Migrating a database from Trac to FogBugz can be fully automated with this tool. All users, cases, wikis, and other items will be added to your FogBugz database via the FogBugz API. You can use this tool with any FogBugz installation, including a FogBugz On Demand site; it won't erase any existing information.

The tool has a simple graphical interface that guides you through the process. If you're a Linux user, a non-graphical executable is also included; you can choose the one you prefer.

The Trac Import Assistant can be downloaded for Mac, Windows and Linux. Please note that this is a 32-bit binary, so will require 32-bit libraries be installed on a 64-bit system. Windows and Mac handle this automatically, but your Linux flavor may not!

Because the tool can connect to MySQL databases, the non-graphical backend is open sourced under the GPL. You can download the source.
