Importing A Mysql Database


Recommended Posts



I'm setting up a forum on my website, and I want to import the data from an old forum that my friends and I used to run. The old forum's database file is about 13 megs.


So I created a new database and used PHPMyAdmin to try to upload it (I'm following the phpmyadmin documentation), but the operation times out... I'm sure it's because the file is so large.


So, can someone give me some other way to upload this database so I can import the entries into my new forum?

Or, would it be possible for an admin to import it for me, since the file is on my webspace?
