    Hi - I have been given a disc by a client with an existing WP site and a database (.sql) - I created a temporary domain on my server with the relevant database. I uploaded the WP content. I then went to phpMyadmin and tried to import the database. I got an error message 'SQL query - drop table if exists' - Is there something I need to do to the existing database before I try to import it? Also, once imported would I need user name and password to see the site? Please can someone help?
