    That depends on the access you have to the server. If you are looking to use code to restore the back up, you'll need to:
    1. truncate the old db (remove all tables ) Perhaps a drop and recreate the db
    2. warn the users that any and all data currently in the db and not included in the restore will be lost and 'do they want to do this?'
    3. then open the sql file and start grabbing data and passing it to mysql

    if you have the ability to send the file to the db server, you can use load infile to run the sql file against the db after dropping and recreating the db

    I wish my computer would do what I want it to.
    Not what I tell it to do...
