How to import messages into system database

To be able to speed up sending SMS text messages you can use System Database option of Ozeki NG SMS Gateway that allows storing messages in a database instead of a file. To introduce this option first you need to import your messages from file to database. This page provides you a detailed description on how to import your messages into system database with System Database Importer.

When you switch to System Database, you can receive an error message since the system cannot find messages.

The reason for this: the system searches for messages still in the file but system database stores them in a database. To avoid this error message please download System Database Importer.

Import SMS text messages to system database

For demonstration I send 200 SMS text messages from a file using Ozeki Performance Tester. Ozeki NG SMS Gateway has already been installed on the computer and I store messages in a file (Figure 1).

Now I switch to System Database. In Edit menu select Server Preferences. On Databases tab click on System database settings tab. Here enable Use a database server instead of file system to store message option. Specify Database connection type and Database connection string(Figure 3).
