[quote]ell I’m still stumped. I have made progress though. I am able to ssh into the shell, but when I enter the above command (with my password, etc, and the sql file is called dump.sql), I am getting the following error:
-bash: [dump.sql]: No such file or directory[/quote]
Here’s a tip. Bash has an auto-completion where it if you start typing in a string and then hit TAB it will scan the filesystem and try to complete the string.
$ mysql -h [mysql.mydomainname.com] -u [dbaseusername] -p[dbpassword] [db_to_restore] < d
then hit the TAB key and Bash will try to find a file in the current directory starting with the letter d. Obviously if there is more than one it won’t do anything. But if you hit TAB again it will show a list of files starting with the letter d. If you know there is more than one that starts with d, you can type du before hitting TAB.
