I just got a new client, [save the celebration until after we get a check].
The new client's site is ten years old and written in ColdFusion running in a CF 8 server envronment. I asked the Network Admin to give me a backup of the site DB, kind of half expecting a text-based SQL file. Buy instead I got a binary file (.bak) and the files first four letters were "TAPE" (same four letters as in two month old back-up file).
Any one have a clue on mwhat this file is? The idea here is to migrate the CodFusion DB file info over to a MYSQL DB.
I imagine this is going to happen a lot since CF has lost its market.
