  • lite version: mysql moving server problem

    I am trying to move my lite version of vB based on this link: [url]http://vbulletin.com/manual/movingservers.html[/url]

    I've done it before without a problem but today when I try to restore the database, instead of doing what it suppose to it made the sql file into 0byte. I did it over and over again yet the problem still persist.

    Restoring does not write to the sql file, it reads it. What command are you using to restore?

      mysql -u[b]mysqlusername[/b] -p databasename > /path/to/sqlfile.sql

      yep yep

      the extracted sql file is about 14mb and as soon as I hit that, the sql file becomes 0byte O_o??

      I tried with different username and password paired with a new database and same thing occurs. :eek:

        That's what I thought. This should be:

        mysql -umysqlusername -p databasename [b]<[/b] /path/to/sqlfile.sql

        By using > instead of < you are writing to the file instead of reading it.

          bash-2.04$ mysql -uUSER_pb -pPASSWORD DBNAME < /home/www/all-databases.sql
          bash: /home/www/all-databases.sql: Permission denied
          (why is it doing that when the username/pw/db is correct? so I run the below command)
          bash-2.04$ mysql -uUSER -pPASSWORD DBNAME
          Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
          Your MySQL connection id is 430748 to server version: 3.23.45

          Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

          mysql> Aborted
          bash-2.04$

          as you can see, I can't add [b]< /home/www/all-databases.sql
          [/b] or it will say access denied O_o??

            For anyone who also had this problem: CHMOD it to 444 first. ^^
