[Resolved] Transfer Database Strange Error

  • Hello, I am attempting to move my database from one host to another, but am having trouble importing the database. When I attempt to do this, I get this error:

    There is a chance that you may have found a bug in the SQL parser. Please examine your query closely, and check that the quotes are correct and not mis-matched. Other possible failure causes may be that you are uploading a file with binary outside of a quoted text area. You can also try your query on the MySQL command line interface. The MySQL server error output below, if there is any, may also help you in diagnosing the problem. If you still have problems or if the parser fails where the command line interface succeeds, please reduce your SQL query input to the single query that causes problems, and submit a bug report with the data chunk in the CUT section below:

    [ Moderator note: deleted. If you need to share that binary data then use and post a link to it on pastebin.com. ]

    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 ‘BZh41AY&SYx??’ at line 1

    I am not sure what all of those question mark characters mean, but I am assuming it is not good. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? Thank you very much in advanced!

  • Update: I solved the error by using an uncompressed version of the .sql file. For whatever reason, the .zip was screwing up the file.
