Importing Sql file to new database via myPHPadmin
I’m trying to switch some of my sites to new databases that utilise PHP5 so I can (finally) upgrade to WordPress 3.2
I’ll explain one example to you, they’re basically all the same.
I exported the contents of my old database and created a new one. In myPHPadmin no matter what I do I get the following error when importing:
meta_idBIGINT( 20 ) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
comment_idBIGINT( 20 ) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT ‘0’,
meta_keyVARCHAR( 255 ) DEFAULT NULL ,
PRIMARY KEY (
) ENGINE = MYISAM DEFAULT CHARSET = utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT =1;
#1046 – No database selected
I’ve done quite a bit of research online and I’ve followed all the guidelines.
I’ve removed the lines that specify the old database (didnt work).
Then I removed the text at the top that specifies what it is e.g — phpMyAdmin SQL Dump, — version 2.11.10, — http://www.phpmyadmin.net etc, (didnt work).
Finally I removed some code at the top of the sql that was suggested to me to get rid of in a different forum. Code beginning with this:SET SQL_MODE=”NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO”; (also didnt work)
I’ve tried uploading the sql file in myPHPadmin and pasting the code into the SQL tab of the import function.
No matter what I keep on getting the above error.
If someone can help me I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
