    Hi m8

    the best and easiest way I know is to use telnet or SSH.

    Ill tell you how to do this , as I still dont know how to do it otherwise with like phpmyadmin:-

    in telnet or SSH type :-

    mysqldump -uUSERNAME -pPASSWORD dbname < /location/of/your/dump.sql

    make sure the arrow is < and not > otherwise it wont work. the > arrow is used when u want to make a backup of the database.

    type it in EXACTLY as it is in blue. It should work fine.

    Feel free to ask any more questions
