# How can I restore multiple databases or all databases dumped by mysqldump?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Suppose if we have dumped multiple databases or all the databases and now want to restore it then we can do it with the following example −

C:\mysql\bin>mysql -u root < tutorials_query1.sql

With the help of above query, we are restoring the dumped multiple databases named ‘tutorials’ and ‘query1’, which are dumped in the file named ‘tutorials_query1.sql’. In this case, we do not need to write the name of the database.

Similarly, with the help of the following query, we can restore all the databases dumped by mysqldump −

C:\mysql\bin>mysql -u root < alldatabases.sql

With the help of above query, we are restoring all the dumped databases, which are dumped in the file named ‘alldatabases.sql’. In this case, we do not need to write the name of the database.
