I created a new database on dreamhost and am trying to import my backup wordpress .sql file into it.
It is over the allowed 7mb so I can’t use phpmyadmin option.
I am using PuTTY, with this input:
mysql --host=[mysql.website.com] --user=[database username] --password=[password] [database name on dreamhost] < [database name I’m importing]
I also tried this syntax:
mysql -h [mysql.website.com] -u [username] -p[password] [database name] < [database I am trying to import.sql]
When I run these two options, nothing happens. I am on shared hosting. Is that a problem?
How would someone on dreamhost’s shared hosting plan import a wordpress .sql database file that is 100mb in size?
