  • rustybulb


    I need to do a clean reinstall of my blog from a backup. But my backup plugin provides only SQL.GZ files.

    I have seached for how to upload a sql.gz file and everything I have found only shows how to do .TAR.gz files.

    I can’t find anything for SQL.GZ files.

    Does anyone know please?

    Same idea.

    You should be able to manually upload the file into phpMyAdmin.




    Thanks but it needed to be unzipped first. I couldn’t get 7-zip to work on my PC. And Hamster zip was behaving weird.

    I also didn’t like the idea of having a possibly corrupt installation/restore on my site. I’m not confident doing this sort of tech stuff. I should have outsourced the whole thing.

    So I gave up, installed a brand new blog and will laboriously add my old posts manually. Crazy I know, but I understand this way. And I won’t be paranoid everytime something goes wrong, that it could be a corrupt file.
