Migrating HSQLDB to MySQL


I have a issue with migrating HSQLDB to MySQL. I try to migrate it via your instruction


But migration toolkit return empty SQL file.  I copied DB from /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/database 2 files:

jiradb.properties and jiradb.script

After finishing all steps from instructions I got empty file. Here is log file:
