    Hi David,

    Do you have any plans to add support to mysql export files?

    Thanks

    Hi Karim,

    UpdraftPlus’s database exports are ordinary SQL files already.

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    If I have a .sql file which I have exported from phpmyadmin, could you please tell me how can I import it using updraft instead of going into the phpmyadmin and import from there?

    Thanks

    Hi Karim,

    You can rename it to match the filename pattern of an UpdraftPlus database file ending in -db ; and then gzip it, if it’s not already gzipped (use 7-zip if you’re on WIndows). Then you should be able to drag-drop it into UpdraftPlus’s restoration area.

    Note that it’ll need to contain SQL that does not hard-code any references to databases. i.e. no statements like “USE my_database” or crazy stuff like “DROP ALL DATABASE”. UpdraftPlus will happily run all the SQL it finds there. So, if it’s got anything hard-coded or crazy, then it will do whatever it is told!

    David
