Database import error (3 posts)

    Ok, so I updated my WP to 3.7.1 and my qtranslate is not working good, so I want to go back to 3.6
    I make a backup with UpdraftPlus Backup before updating, and I exported my database.

    Restoration with UpdraftPlus was successful, but I didn't get WP 3.6 back.
    So I tried to import my old database with WP 3.6, but I cannot do it.
    I am getting:
    "MySQL said: Documentation
    #1007 - Can't create database '*****_*****'; database exists
    "

    What should I do?!
    Should I delete existing database first, and then import old database?

    Try deleting the old database and importing again. Its showing error because the database already exists.

    I have tried that, but without success.
    I also tried with deleting just the tables inside the database, but again not working.

    I somehow reverted back to the old database (although I deleted it), but again I didn't resolve my problem.
    I wanted to go back to WP 3.6.1 because qtranslate is not working with 3.7.1, but I cannot do it.
