Importing a mysql database?


#1

I am not familiar with phpmyadmin and am looking for a very simple way to import a mysql database as I am moving my weblog from another site.

Help!

MissionBlue,

I am not sure of a way to import the table structure. I have accomplished several big imports after the table structure is set.

In PHPMyAdmin, select the table name from the list on the left. Then scroll to the very bottom, and there is a link titled “insert data from textfile into table.”

That link opens another page with options and everything you should need.

I hope this helps,

Well, I managed to figure out with help from a friend, but the operationg keeps timing out when I try dumping the data from the old database into the new?
