    All one has to do is use MySQL workbench to compare schemas — it’s easy, fast and free.

    Import one schema into MySQL workbench, and then use the “Forward Engineer” feature to compare. It’s that easy, and you can get output as a CREATE script or as an ALTER script!

  2. Aleksandr Serdyuk Says:

    MySQL Workbench is designed to synchronize database model with the database. It is not suitable for comparing schemas, especially those that have different names. Schema differences analysis is even more difficult with Workbench. In plain and simple cases it can do the job but if things get more complicated MySQL Workbench becomes not the right tool to do the task.
