Importing MySQL Data
If you have exported MySQL data in a text file, you can import it to your MySQL database by following these steps.
- Browse to your MySQL database administration through your customer control panel.
- Once logged in, on the left frame at the top you should see a phpMyadmin logo, and below that the text "Home". Just below that you should see the name of your database, which would be your applicable "domain_com". Click on that link.
- Click on the "SQL" tab which will load in the right frame.
- Click on the "Browse..." button to locate your MySQL file, and import the data to your database.
NOTE: There is a limit of 8 MB per file. If you need to import more than 8 MB at a time, you'll need to split the data up into multiple files.
There is plenty of documentation available to you in the browser-based tool phpMyAdmin which you can find in your account control panel by clicking on MySQL Administration under the Site Managementsection in the Linux Account link. You can also find lots of information at http://www.mysql.org or http://www.phpmyadmin.net.
Error Message #1044 - Access denied for user: 'username_com@localhost' to database > databasename'
The above error message is displayed because you are attempting to create a database in addition to the one you were provisioned with when you signed up for a MySQL database. Simply remove the code you used to create your new database and modify the database you were provisioned with to include information you want displayed in your database. All database management must be done through the browser-based tool, phpMyAdmin, which you can access easily by browsing to http://yourdomain.com/phpMyAdmin.
