Ever tried to import a big dump file with SQL statements via phpMyAdmin? No dice, the limit is 2MB files.
If you’re running some kind of UNIX/Linux environment you can easily import your file from command line:
mysql -p -h localhost dbname < dump.sql
-p flag to prompt for password, -h to connect to host. Localhost can of course be changed to whatever your server IP/hostname is. The < dump.sql refers to what way you will be piping things and of course the filename of your sql-dump. You can easily dump things into a text file if you use > instead.
