SQL question


Recommended Posts

Can somebody tell me what "Run an SQL file" means and exactly how to do it? I want to add a contribution to my store, but just want to make sure I do it right.


The .zip file included an SQL file to run. So, should I import this file? If so, where?


Thanks for your help.

It means you need to log into phpmyadmin, select the database name from the dropdown on the left, then click on sql on the top right. You can then either copy and paste the code on the sql file supplied by the contribution or click the browse button and find the file and do it that way.


How you get to phpmyadmin all depends on your host but most of them will have a link to it somewhere in the hosting control panel. (sometimes called cpanel)
