How can I restore a file created by mysqldump?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Suppose if we want to restore a file that has been created by mysqldump then we can restore in an existing database or in a new database after creating it. Then with the help of SOURCE statement, we can restore it. We can illustrate it by an example:

Example

In this example, we are restoring the table named student_info.sql which has been dumped. It was basically in the database name ‘query’. Now we will restore it into a database named ‘tutorials’.

mysql> Use Tutorials;
Database changed

mysql> SOURCE student_info.sql;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected, 1 warning (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.45 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec)

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Query OK, 7 rows affected (0.05 sec)
Records: 7 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

Now, with the help of the following statement, we can see that ‘student_info’ table is restored in a database named ‘Tutorials’.

mysql> Show tables;

| Tables_in_tutorials |
+---------------------+
| rtgs                |
| student_info        |
+---------------------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> Select * from Student_info;
