I am trying to import a Mysql dump file.
the file was created on a Linux server, I am trying to import on windows
I logged into the command line and ran
but this seems to have thrown up some character set problems (specifically with smart quotes and other non standard punctuation)
It was suggested to me that I ran
mysql -u username -d dbase < c:\dump.sql
When I try this I get the error
ERROR 2006 (HY000) at line 149351: MySQL server has gone away
A bit of googling suggested that this was to do with the max_allowed_packet switch but I have tried this and it hasn't worked. Has anyone any idea what this could be?
If anyone has a suggestion about the character set issue that would be helpful too.
