MySQL Question

importing sql file into a database using wamp

I tried importing my yyy.sql file ( a large file) into xxx database through wampserver. I copied yyy.sql file to C: drive and through mysql console
mysql> use xxx
mysql>source C:\yyy.sql

when I execute these commands it seems its reading each row.
after that it gives
and when I check the xxx database it's showing empty.
what's wrong?


Option 1; PHPMyAdmin

1. left click wamp -> phpmyadmin
2. select database then click import (top right)
3. locate the database and click go.

Option 2; Using the command line.

The easiest way to import a sql file into a database in WAMP, using command line is as follows:

1. Open Command Prompt (CMD - DOS) get into the mysql folder, which in my case works like this
C:\> cd C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.0.51b\bin

2. Then use this command to fire up MySQL
   This line basically connects you to the mysql database of your choice.
   (-p for password if you have one)
C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.0.51b\bin> mysql.exe -use databasename -u username -p

3. To make things easier, copy the SQL file into the same folder as mysql.exe, and then run this
mysql> source myfilename.sql;
