Having a bit of a problem here and I’m not completely up on this part. My old (crappy) hosts got rid of my cPanel access, so I cant get to our old database anymore.
I had a feeling this was going to happen, and although some of the exporting was not working, I was able to export my tables to text files so that they’d hopefully import. So, I have:
- Name of the old database
- Name of the user
- All 4 tables exported to .txt files
So, I cant do an SQLdump because I cant login to the old database anymore. Is there a step by step on this process?
I created a new SQL database with the same database name and same user name as the old. The old host accepted ‘localhost’ while Dreamhost does not. Is this going to be a problem? If I dont have the old password, will that be a problem?
Any help is majorly appreciated.
