;101381']it might well be the wrong way. From what you wrote i am almost certain Complete/Extended inserts were used to create the backup. Nothing wrong with that as long as the MySQL server has a big enough timeout for the queries to complete. Now looking at your error message it seems like the the timeout isn´t big enough for the query to complete, the connection times out and you receive the error message "MySQL server has gone away".
There are a few ways to get the database imported, but which ones might work depends on the database. You can try to manually import the database in chunks or try a tool like Bigdump, worst case would be that you have to manually turn the extended queries into single queries that then will import fine.
How big is the database btw?
Hi, thanks for the help. The size of the database is: 3.02 MB (3,168,080 bytes)
I'm sorry, but I'm really not to code savvy, so I really didn't understand most of what you said, so I'm not quite sure what to do. Would you be able to guide me through, step by step? I'm still not sure why the server times out, its only 3MB...
