Using PhpMyAdmin Export and Import MySQL Data

phpMyAdmin is a popular and free PHP application used for administering one or more MySQL servers. Although this instruction focuses on Windows XP(IIS), you may find helpful hints for setting phpMyAdmin with Apache.

I assume you installed PHPMyAdmin and Mysql before you start this lesson.

It is quite often for web master to export and import data between 2 different MySQL database or backup MySQL data. PHPMyAdmin provides us an easy tool to fulfill this task in just few clicks.

Let's assume we changed our web hosting company and need transfer MySQL database data from old web hosting site to the new one.

Export data from MySQL database

Suppose we have a table named textTable holding all text, numerical data. In order to migrate this data to new MySQL database, we need dump all data out.

phpmyadmin export import, backup data

Open your PhpMyAdmin control panel, select your database and your table want to export. Then click on "Export" tab. You will the the above image on your screen.

Check "Save as file" and type a file name in "File name template" text box. Then, Select "gzipped" for "Compression". This could save you a lot of exporting time if your table is huge. Then click on "Go" button. You will have prompt window asking you where to save your exporting data. You may save it to your desired directory. In our example, you most likely will have an "texttable.sql.gz" file saved.

The exported data more or less look like the following. It is a collection of SQL commands.

-- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump
-- version 2.6.4-pl2
-- Host: localhost
-- Generation Time: Dec 01, 2005 at 01:02 PM
-- Server version: 4.0.16
-- PHP Version: 4.3.11
-- Database: `testingdatabase`

-- --------------------------------------------------------

-- Table structure for table `TextTable`

CREATE TABLE `TextTable` (
`no` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
`test` text,

-- Dumping data for table `TextTable`

INSERT INTO `TextTable` VALUES (1, 'tests');
INSERT INTO `TextTable` VALUES (1, 'tests2');


Import Data to MySQL

Then PhPMyAdmin control panel in your new website, open your database that you want put your data in. You could see the following image:

phpmyadmin export import, backup data

Click on "SQL" tab. Use "Browse" button located the exported data file that is saved in step 1. You may choose "Autodetect" for "Compression". Since we know it is a "gzipped" file, we check on "gzipped". Then click "Go" button.

You will see your dumped table in your new site.
