    I would like to setup a forum on my home system that is identical to the forum that I am an admin on the web (for testing purposes). The mysql dump is about 56mb, so I can't use phpmyadmin's function to import it to my XP's database.
    Usually, I set up an identical forum on another server of mine and use SSH to import the file, mysql -u username -p databsename < dumpname, but I don't know how to do this on my home XP's system
    My home's system is using XXAMP for apache and mysql. Does anyone know of a way to get my dump into my mysql database? I tried using the command above, but XP says that mysql is not a command.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, wasn't sure if it was an XP or mysql forum category thread.

    Any one know? I was able to do it by manually splitting the big dumps, but I would like to find a better solution for future use.
