Getting a 'Duplicate key or integrity constraint violation' During XML Import
When migrating to MySQL from another database, such as HSQL, importing the site backup often fails with an error like this:
Duplicate key or integrity constraint violation message from server
Such errors occur because usually MySQL evaluates unique key constraints and primary key constraints in a case insensitive way. So if you have a space with the key "sp" and another with the key "SP", MySQL will refuse to add the second one.
This problem is avoidable by setting the collation on the database to be case sensitive.
