Switching web hosts & importing MySQL db’s
I am switching web hosts. How do I import the MySQL db’s from the old web host to the new web host? I do not want my blog to go offline during the transfer process. I’ve already used the WordPress backup feature to backup all my databases. But, here’s the problem: I have very little knowledge of MySQL. I know how to create a db, how to add a user, and how to use the “Check & Repair” function. That’s it.
I have no idea how to import the db’s that I’ve just backed up.
How do I use Cpanel to import the db’s? What’s the general process for switching webhosts using WP?
