confluence mysql to postgresql migration

I have had great luck with pgloader transfering data excerpt for one table, plugindata.  Does anyone have any hints on the proper casting for the fields?  The problem field seems to be named data and defined as a LONGBLOB. The migration is from MySQL 5.1 to Postgresql 9.3 using pgloader version "3.2.0"

Examples of the pgloader errors: 

The value 33354273 is not of type (UNSIGNED-BYTE 24).
DEBUG copy-batch plugindata 5 rows [oversized]

Hi Dave

You might consider to use the XML backup to migrate, as described here: Migrating to Another Database

Hi @Dave Watts,


Was you able to migrate from mysql to postgre?
