You could run a system command from the web browser to import the text file. If you have access to PHPmyAdmin, you could use it to then import the file. Or finally, you should be able to read the contents of the file into a variable (if it's small enough) and then run the query using mysql_query.
My personal preference is phpmyadmin. It's a very good database interface and can be retrieved from http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/ Robbert van Andel -----Original Message----- From: Todd Cary [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Saturday, November 05, 2005 4:02 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Chris Herron Subject: [PHP-DB] Using PHP to import a DB My client switched from a dedicated server to a shared server, so I cannot use the command line to import a DB that was produced with mysqldump. Can I duplicate "mysql -u user -p db < /tmp/mydb" with php? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated....
