    How do I restore my database effectively?

    Hi guys,

    I have a 24MB sql file that I took from my existing server which i'd like to bring to a new one.

    I tried using the restore function in cpanel->backup but after much loading nothign really happens. It takes me to a page after about 7 minutes that says "Restoring Database" and nothing happens from there.

    Anyone know what the most effective way of restoring this database without losing any data is?

    Thanks.
