Restoring Your Database From Backup using phpmyadmin

The phpMyAdmin is a program used to manipulate databases remotely through a web interface. A good hosting package will have this included.

Using phpMyAdmin, follow the steps below to restore a MySQL database.

1) Login to phpMyAdmin.

2) Click databases, and select the database that you will be importing your data into (if you do not have one then you will need to create a new one).

3) Across the top of the screen click on the Import tab.

4) On the next screen will be a Location of Text File box, and next to that a button named Browse.

5) Click Browse. Locate the backup file stored on your computer.

6) Make sure the SQL radio button is checked and click the Go button.
