Importing database files MyPHPAdmin

  • I am having problems pulling the terms_taxonomy and terms_relations tables back into a database using myphpadmin — the options table doesn’t want to cooperate either.. the comments, posts postmeta tables came back in ok.. is there a trick to this?

  • Sorry, wrong answer.


    What errors do you get/see and we might be able to help.


    I got it, I went into the original installation, turned off all the plugins, emptied the 24 megs of data marked spam (no idea why the person did/had not deleted the spam when it was marked) and then, instead of pasting it into the SQL editor, I used the upload/import tool (which I could because the size of the above were greatly reduced)

    Believe it or not, the first time I migrated this server for this person, this one blog had a database close to 189 megs (mostly saved spam) and at that time the original server was no longer available, I had to edit and run SQL statements chunks at a time to get it installed, I just cleaned it up again and that same database today, 2 and 1/2 years later is only 5.87 megs…

    I just thought I recalled Andrea mentioning this before as a “work-a-round”

    Instead of worry about adjusting the php.ini to handle whooping huge files via MyPHPAdmin (I normally use MySQL tools) I just brought the database in table at a time…

    Issue resolved… thanks


    please mark topic as resolved.
