I've got a working Magento website hosted on a development server but I've decided to take a local copy to make it easier to work on.
I've downloaded the source files and imported the database. All looks to be working perfectly, I can see all of my products and I can't see any problems - but during this import, I noticed this error:
My.Name@NETWORK c:\xampp\htdocs\website # mysql -u root database < database.sql ERROR 1452 (23000) at line 415010: Cannot add or update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails (`database`.`#sql-be4_32`, CONSTRAINT `FK_CATALOG_EAV_ATTRIBUTE_ATTRIBUTE_ID_EAV_ATTRIBUTE_ATTRIBUTE_ID` FOREIGN KEY (`attribute_id`) REFERENCES `eav_attribute` (`attribute_id`) ON DELETE )
Will this error have stopped certain data from being imported. Everything at the moment looks fine and ideally I would like to continue and ignore the error - but I don't want it to bite me in days/weeks to come!
