Adding existing database

  • 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?
