help with sql commands to install db data dumps
Thanks for your help.
Regarding the message below,
I'm new to SQL, which mySQL commands to I type into
phpMyadmin to upload data to the cur tables?

For example, if my db dump is called "123_cur.sql"
what do I type in to add my data?

(also, how do I inc. my max packet size?)

phpmyadmin has an option for uploading a file of sql
commands. This
might work, however be aware that the amount of data
is very large; you
might or might not be able to use that on the large
dump files.

You may also need to increase the max packet size in
your mysqld
