    transferring MySQL database to new server

    I'm trying to put an old database (up to now running on my home computer) onto a new server through ftp. I've uploaded the database directory, but how do I now import the database files onto the new database server?

    I know there's a simple answer, but my MySQL book isn't being terribly clear...

    thx

    Hey again,

    thanks for the reference, but I didn't have much luck with it...

    All I want is to recreate the structure of my database on a new server. I've uploaded the database directory to the new server. Is there a simple way to recreate the database simply by looking at the directory files?

    Man, this is really confusing stuff.

    Surely there's a one-liner I can type in to tell the mysql server to make a database out of my uploaded (blank) database files...?! SURELY.
