    Restoring a database through cPanel

    I had a server-related problem with upgrading my forum software, so after trying a million things to try and go around the problem, I had to drop my database and reupload the backup version.

    So I went to the backup section and uploaded the gzipped backup of my database. Well, after uploading for a while, it goes to a page saying Restoring Database. Well, problem is that it has been stuck at this page for the past couple of hours.

    I have not closed the window, but should I just continue to wait, or what?

    I should mention that the file size was 10.4 MB, and I was restoring over a dial-up connection.

    I've never done a restore through cpanel, but 10mb shouldn't be a problem. You can also restore your database manually if you have shell access on your hosting account.
