Why you want to use CE 2.2.4 database in 2.2.5 version of magento.
You just upgrade your CE 2.2.4 version to 2.2.5 to keep old database in new version.
The problem is I can't upgrade from CE 2.2.4 to CE 2.2.5 because I ran into memory issue which I can't find any solution. Also, during upgrade, all my magento files were erased (not sure why?). I have been hoping someone could help me from this forum but no answer so far. So I am thinking install CE 2.2.5 from scratch and then import 2.2.4 database.
