I have a large database file (1.5GB) named file.sql, I use "source" command to extract it into mysql databse but I receive lots of error messages. It used to work fine.

Here is a snapshot of part of the messages

Unknown command '\''.
Unknown command '\''.
Unknown command '\''.
Unknown command '\"'.
ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host '縺ォ縺、縺・※</a></td>rn' (0)
ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host '</tr>rn' (0)

When trying on a different computer, everything works fine. Thank you for any concern. No one helps ?

Maybe an encoding problem? – ghm1014 Mar 15 '12 at 14:26

Not much to go on here. Check that the input files are identical on both machines using something like md5sum

md5sum file.sql
76c004219056ff255686d3d73aba7e18  file.sql

They should both have the same checksum.
