Add existing SQL database


I have an existing SQL database on another server that I’d like to move to my DreamHost account. I’ve exported the database to a file on my local computer – now I’m just trying to find a way to put it up on the DreamHost server. Is there a way to do that – to install an existing database – without creating a new SQL database and running some script to import all the data? Sorry if this is a really simple question!


You must setup the database first (do that here). You will then need to wait a few minutes while the database is setup and configured. Then follow the instructions on the wiki to migrate the database.
