Phpmyadmin error on run of SQL


#1

So I have 2 databases. #1 has a phpbb data and the #2 is empty. I exported the data and structure from #1 with the create table commands into an SQL formatted file. I tried to run the SQL to import/create the tables structure and data into my db #2, but I got the error “The document contains no data”

I’m not sure where to go from here…


#2

did you use the mysql export function of phpmyadmin? use that or command line (ssh) to get your dump. I know there were detailed instructions on a phpmyadmin dump posted here a couple months ago, and the K-base has good info on doing a dump via the command line.

Once you’re sure you’re getting a good dump from the database, then you should be able to import it.
