Manually restoring a MySQL database

Support > Hosting > MySQL databases

If you are logged into the administration interface of the MySQL database with the correct MySQL user, you can import a database backup file of the relevant database by following these steps:

1. Selection

If you have access to multiple databases with the MySQL user you logged in with, open the MySQL database into which you want to import the data.

Click the relevant database names in the grey column at the left.

 

2. Check

Any tables now appear under «Structure». Make sure that the selected database does not contain any tables that can cause conflicts when performing the import. When you create a new MySQL database, it is empty and contains no tables.

3. Import

Click the «Import» button at the top edge of the screen.

4. Select import source

If you want to restore a database from an SQL file, click «Select file» in the section «File to import» to navigate to the file stored on your device.

The procedure for restoring an SQL file is described here.

5. Import database

Typically, you can leave the other settings unchanged when performing a database import, and then click «OK» to start the import.

Depending on the size of the file you are importing, this can take several minutes.

6. Finish

Once the database has been imported successfully, a confirmation appears. You can now use the imported data immediately.
