    Hello, I have a problem with Restoring my database from backup.
    I read this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup

    I did all the steps and than I get an error message:
    MySQL said:

    #1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '/' at line 1.

    What can I do? I even don't know if I did well all the steps.
    thanks a lot for the helpers.

    You still got the database as backup? Try to follow again the steps

    Follow the error message and you should be able to find something.

    Look at line 1 of the file that you are importing. Now find a / character. That's where the error is. Why the error is happening we can't tell you without seeing that line from the file. Also be aware that it depends on the format of the SQL file, but errors can occur on lines above or below the line that you are shown depending on where the ; (end of line in SQL) character is situated.
