PHP-Powered Version Control System For Databases – DBV

Git, Subversion and other version control systems are great for managing projects within a team and making sure that everyone in the team gets the latest versions of each file.

However, versioning databases is not a built-in feature in such systems and they should definitely be synchronized too.

DBV is an open source and PHP-powered application that can help us include databases in to the version control system we are using.

Database Version Control

Once installed, it tracks each schema/record change (tables, rows, columns, views, functions, etc.) and allows us to export a SQL file reflecting the change (to a folder we want).

As this SQL file will also be committed with th version control system we are using, it’ll be received with other team members.

DBV supports MySQL by default and has a simple interface to implement connectors for any other databases.
