  • Hello,
    I’m currently working from a PC on EasyPHP database, I did an export database from there to import it into Mamp on my Mac, well the end file is exe which I guess is the reason why Mamp doesn’t recognize the format.
    How to export the database from Easyphp (PC) so that I can import it to Mac (Mamp.
    I’m a beginner to Worpress ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Thanks

  • Hi @ginkgomedia,
    to export a database you can use the phpMyAdmin application packaged with EasyPHP, normally for a local installation you can access it through your browser at the url http://localhost/phpmyadmin , if it does not work please consult the EasyPHP documentation.
    In phpMyAdmin you’ll select the database and choose “Export”, that creates a .sql file.
    Then you’ll import this same file into MAMP through phpMyAdmin packaged with MAMP.

    Hi Giancarlo,
    yes thats what I did, I exported the database file from EasyPHP PC) and then tried to import it to Mamp (Mac), but I get a error message, see screenshot.
    the file name is ecoquartier.sql
    Is it easier to create a new database for the whole project?
    Thanks for replying.
    What could be the reason why Mamp doesn’t recognize the format? any idea?

    Sorry @ginkgomedia, I don’t understand, in your first post you wrote that

    the end file is exe

    that’s why I suggested to use phpMyAdmin because I thought you were exporting in an exe file.
    I can’t see your screenshot, please post it again or use an external service.

    yes sorry, I made a mistake, the end is not exe but sql (the image shows exec. though the confusion)
    I saved the images again in jpg format, they where in png. You can only put an url to the image? I wanted to import them here but you can’t…
    ecoquartier is de project i ned to import the database to, it was already created on a PC via Easyphp.
    As you can see the other project “wordpress” already has its own database.
    I’m doing something wrong but don’t know what and where ๐Ÿ˜‰

    oups I think I got it, but not sure, you need to compress it to a zip file first before you import it.
    You do that in EasyPHP when you export?

    Hello Nathalie,
    you can upload the image in http://imgur.com/ (clic “New Post” in the upper part of the window) and paste here the link, it should work.
    It is not necessary to zip the sql file.
