I’ve just signed up with Dreamhost and I’m attempting to move all my sites over - unforunately they contain lots of Mysql databases that are too large to import via phpmyadmin.
So I am attempting to do it via SSH - which I’ve never used before. I’m logged in and can see all my files but when I type the command into the command line and hit enter I just keep getting a message saying the host hasn’t answered and do I want to retry. Over and over and over. Here’s the command I’m typing as per the dreamhost wiki:
mysql -h mysql.example.com -uusername -ppassword newdbname < outfile.sql
And yes I’ve changed the necessary things for my info. At least the -h -u and -p parts. newdbname I’m assuming is my database name which is forums and then the < outfile.sql I’m assuming is my vbulletin.sql file. I’ve tried putting just that and I’ve tried putting the full path to the file in but I still get the host not answering thing.
What am I missing? Never used SSH before so god only knows what I’m doing wrong.
