Database Import Issue - WXR File Versus SQL File Import (1 post)

    Hello and thank you for your time.

    To make a long story short, I had to reinstall WordPress on my server. Before reinstalling WordPress, I emailed a backup of my data from within WordPress.

    That emailed backup file is a .sql file and I am getting the following error when I try to import that file into WordPress.

    This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number

    How do I import my data if it's an .sql?
