How to import sql database to a new wordpress? (2 posts)

    One of my sites got hacked but I exported the sql database and also all the content. The Version was 3.2.1 but now I'm on 3.4.1

    I uninstalled wordpress and reinstalled it. When I try to import the sql file (tools > Import) I keep getting an error page saying "Connection reset"

    Does anyone know any other way I can import the sql file? I know the database name will be different because of the new install. Is there any other things I would need to do?

    You can consider importing the sql directly via tools e.g. phpmyadmin. After imported and tried to login, you maybe asked to upgrade the database as they are different version. Just do it.
