Attaching a database
I'm a beginner at MySQL and need to attach a database that was emailed to me as an email attachment. It has a .sql extension.
How do you do this?
open it up in a text editor, and see if it contains CREATE and INSERT sql statements
if so, you don't attach it, you run it into mysql as a file, so that the sql statements can be executed
In Notepad, it has nothing I can read in it. Most of the characters are not regular letters or digits. There are no inserts or creates in it.
How do you turn this into mysql data?
