help.  how to transfer data to remote mysql db?

Posted by 4est (4est), 22 July 2003

        how do i get my tables and records from the db on my machine into the db on my ISPs server?  is there a way to just directly import table-by-table or better yet the entire db?  any help would be greatly appreaciated.  thanks

If you have phpmyadmin, use that.  It's very easy and works very well.  If you don't have phpmyadmin, I believe there are some php scripts that will do it for you, but I'm not familiar with them.

Yep, if you don't have phpmyadmin, use mysqldump on your loacl machine and then the "mysql" utility to upload the dump file.

OK, so i have figured out how to dump my db into a file and how to log on to the db on the ISP server (yes i am a complete newbie) what is the command to import the dump file into the db?  once again thanks so much for your help.

You willo

    mysql  -hservername  -uusername  -ppassword
    source  dumpfilename

If you're running the mysql on the server, then you'll need to FTP the file up there first.   Depending on the options you used in the mysqldump, you may need to do a
     use databasename
before the
     source dumpfilename
