There are times when using phpmyadmin is not that wise...Today I inserted a database dump with just a size about 1,9megs, not that terrific actually. Using phpmyadmin the following happened: It kept on loading endlessly... the command "top" revealed that httpd was eating an average of 90-97% Cpu time. Even after 15 minutes nothing else happened but the hourglass turning in Mozilla Wink I finally killed the process in order to avoid crashing the server. Just typing:
$ mysql database -u uraccount -p < urdump.sql
did the job in a few seconds. This way u will get a password prompt, but it has the advantage of not showing the password. I think the critical mass for phpmyadmin to handle is about 600-800k. anything beyond may still work, but it will take endless minutes to complete. I tested it with the following equipment:
Apache 1.3.24, PHP 4.2.1, MySQL 3.23.49a and phpmyadmin 2.26 (most recent version). So use the command line whenever it may be reasonable, saves time, money and unpleasant emails from BOFHs Wink
--edit: oops flipped "2" and "3" in MySQL Smile. corrected.
bye Ken
