Importing a DB


I’m trying to take my production environment of my blogware and create a dev environment to play in. So I exported my database. I’m assuming an “export” using SQL format should be a backup of my entire database. This is important b/c even when I update my live site I need to make sure i have a backup. I hope this is it!

Anyway, I tried to go to create DB and use a file as the source and that didn’t work. It said I don’t have priviledges to do it. (I only have 1 user).

What up?

This is a tutorial for backing up and restoring WordPress’ database via phpmyadmin. It has worked for me a few times. I know you aren’t using WordPress, but it may steer you in the right direction.
