How to Restore a large Database using phpmyadmin


Please I have been trying to restore or import a large database using phpmyadmin but I couldn’t. The error was “You probably tried to upload too large file. Please refer to documentation for ways to workaround this limit.”
I modified php.ini file and increased the sizes of these post_max_size,
memory_limit and upload_max_filesize but didn’t work.

Please help. Thanks

Anyway that you can upload the file to the server and then use phpAdmin to restore the database?

Depending on the size of your dump file you could split it up into smaller files, then import them separately…

Maybe a silly question but did you remember to restart the server after making the changes to your php.ini? Did you edit the correct one, sometimes you might have 2 or 3 php.inis lurking on a server
