Phpmyadmin error on run of SQL

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…

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.
