Import a MySQL Database

root@Plxxrx:~# mysql -u root -p -h localhost cxxp_cxxtao < /var/www/pplxxx.ixxx/mysqlnewdump.sql


#mysql -u database_user_name -p my_db < /home/username/my_db_backup.sql

More info: Here it should be almost the same as the export. Also, here is a guide on Standalone Veeam ONE installation: How to set up Veeam ONE 11 Server.

#mysql -u database_user_name -p my_db < /home/kudda/my_db_backup.sql.  

Here it is the same as export. After u- you put your database user name and the -p is used for the password option still. See an example of it.

Example: mysql -u root -p my_db < /home/usename/my_db_backup.sql
