I have a Drupal 7 site which is currently hosted in a Windows servers environment (e.g. IIS and MS SQL Server). The site needs to be moved over to Platform.sh, which is using the LAMP stack.

I am wondering if there are likely to be any issues with doing this? For example, is it possible to simply export the existing database from MS SQL Server and then import it into MySQL on the new site using drush?
