Backup of database needs to be done before any changes are made.
The backup is required so we can revert back to the last version in the event the program that loads the data makes the site not work. In the event of emergency, programmer will revert back to the old database.
Programmer will be provided in zip format a MySQL dump of a table that has 10,000 entries.
This mysql data needs to be put into a temporary table.
A program needs to be created to read this temporary table and merge the data in that table into an existing database.
This Program will read the table and load the data into two existing tables.
The program that imports the data will be needed for future use so we need a copy of this program DO not just import this data .
