  • database issues

    Ok...i'm trying to install the old database onto the new server via SSH...i'm using

    mysql -h servername -u dbusername -p databasename < backupname.sql

    mysql -h localhost -u olddataname -p olddatabase < olddatabase.sql

    is that the correct format?

    it's accepting that command...but when it asks for password and i put it in (i KNOW it's correct) it keeps giving this error...

    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'olddataname'@'localhost' (using password: YES)


    any ideas?

    THat user does not have access from the server you are connectin gfrom. Either use the old server to backup, or ask your host to grant your new server access.

      so how do i get the smf database onto the new vb server to perform the import?

      i have ssh access, ftp, etc...it's a dedicated server (not mine though...i'm doing it for someone)

        You need to get the old database first, ssh onto that server or grant that user access from that ipaddress.

            They you need to restore it

            mysql -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD DATABASE < file.sql

              so does this mean it worked? If so...the import still isn't working. It just refreshes the customer number screen everytime i put it in (and yes...i deleted all the whitespace from the files)

              Code:
              [email protected] [~/public_html]# mysql -u pokerfor_smf2 -p smf2 pokerfor_smf2 < localhost.sql

                    So pokerfor_smf2 is the username AND the database name ?

                        mysql -u pokerfor_smf2 -p pokerfor_smf2 < localhost.sql

                        Then it should ask you for the password, though that doesn't work ...

                        How about:

                        mysql -u pokerfor_smf2 -p pokerfor_smf2

                        Then the password, it allows you to log on?

                        Check the sql file that there isn't a CREATE DATABASE and USE DATABASE at the beginning of the file.

                          no, that won't let me log on...i don't think that user exists on this new server...that's the ones from the server the smf installation was on

                            You need to create a new user and possibly database for this server.
