Default Help: Is it necessary to merge several tar.gz files in one? - 04-11-2012, 03:38 PM

Hi. I am in the process of transferring my website to 000webhost.

I downloaded the database from my previous hosting, but it created 4 different files (abook.tar.gz, files.tar.gz, mail.tar.gz and mysql5.tar.gz).

Now here on 000webhost when I click on Import (in PHPmyAdmin) it gives me the option of uploading only one file. What should I do? Should I merge the tar.gz files in one? (If so, how do I do this?)

Many thanks in advance,

Ana.

import the mysql5.tar.gz to the "database backup"
I have no idea about the mail.tar.gz (as you may not import the mail)
and abook.tar.gz and files.tar.gz is probably your source files?
in that case, just upload those two (one by one) to the server and extract them

Hi Leder678. Many thanks for answering!
I think the mail.tar.gz would be the backup for the emails...not sure.
The files.tar.gz is the source files, yes.

Sorry to ask this...but do I also upload the other file using the phpMyAdmin button? (because it seems it allows you to just upload one file).

phpMyAdmin application expects a compressed file with SQL statements. Possibly let you upload the others compressed files but when it try to read file displays errors.
