  • On the server I dumped to a file using these commands
  • ```
  • [email protected]:~$ sudo -i -u postgres
  • user@server:~$ pg_dump databasename > dumpfile
  • ```
  • Then I copied dumpfile to my machine and executed these commands in my machine
  • ```
  • [email protected]:~$ sudo -i -u postgres
  • estela@mymachine:~$ psql
  • psql (12.6 (Ubuntu 12.6-0ubuntu0.20.04.1))
  • Type "help" for help.
  • postgres=# DROP DATABASE databasename;
  • DROP DATABASE
  • postgres=# CREATE DATABASE databasename;
  • CREATE DATABASE
  • postgres=# \q
  • [email protected]Nienor:~$ cat /tmp/dumpfile | psql databasename
  • ```
  • It seems that it is also possible to do this in a single go without using an intermediate file.
  • ```
  • pg_dump -C -h localhost -U serverDbUser databasename | psql -h mymachine -U estela databasename
  • ```
  • Would not have worked for me because I have my ports closed and the DB can only be accessed locally in my machine. Still would have had to DROP the database in my machine before executing that command though.
