You can use a tool like phpmyadmin to manage your database or to load batch files (like the .sql file)

Hi Paul, The only way I know of is to use a program one of which is called phpMyAdmin. You probably have this somewhere in your cpanel (control panel) for your website. On one of mine I have to first go into MySQLAdministration then the phpMyAdmin is in there. Search in your cpanel and you might find it. It was already available in both of the sites I have with different companies. Anyway, hopefully its there, if not maybe you can download it.

 

Assuming its there, what you do is make sure you have made a backup of your database! Just in case. Then go into phpmyadmin and make sure you are in the correct database if you have more then one on your site. You will see several tabs on the top of a box and one wil be Import or if that isn't there then click on the one that shows SQL. You should get a Browse button feature. Just browse for where the SQL file is on your computer for the contribution installation and click GO or possibly RUN and that is all! it should do what the file commanded it to do. You may also manually cut and paste the SQL file into the box, but I would prefer to browse for it.

 

Hope this helps!
