In the past, at other hosts, I have used bigdump to parse large files into batches for the mysql database. For whatever reason this isn’t allowed here since it throws an error and I see utterly no mention of it at wiki or the forums.
I found wiki entries, as well as forum entries on importing large databases. I downloaded Putty and worked from the instructions at DH’s wiki, Migrate MySQL http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Migrate_MySQL
However, putty tells me that the backup table i FTP’d to the server doesn’t exist.
Here’s how I write the commands:
mysql -hdb.mysite.com -uusername -ppassword databasename < db_backeduptableonmylocaldrive.sql
Putty tells me my file, db_backeduptableonmylocaldrive.sql, doesn’t exist on the server.
Is there any other files out there which might give me a couple of klewx4s upside the head?
