Database maximum import size


So currently I run a forum, and I want to run a back up copy for testing modifications and such. However, my SQL file when I export my database is 21.6MB and phpmyAdmin only allows a maximum of like 10624kiB or whatever. How else can I import my file?

Now, I’ve tried chopping up my SQL file into smaller parts, cutting out parts of it and importing it into phpmyAdmin the manual way (through the SQL tab) but after about twenty minutes of hard work, I only cut off 2 MB of the file. Is there a faster way of doing this?


Many report great success using Bigdump.



That sounds like a toilet for the morbidly obese :smiley:
