Database import

Before import:

  • Make sure the database you are importing is in the format sql... If the file is archived, unzip it.
  • Make sure there are no queries in the imported database like CREATE DATABASEsince databases can be create only through the control panel. If there are such requests, the lines with them must be removed from the file using any text editor (for example, Notepad++).
  • If the database to which the import will be performed has not yet been created in the control panel, create it.
  • Make sure there are no characters in the database user password #... If there are any, change password for a password without these characters.
