Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

Not sure if this is the right board, but … please tell me if not.

I’m trying to set up a new replacement database in phpMyAdmin for a broken blog.

If I try to create a new database preparatory to importin a *.sql file, I get #1044 Access denied.

I do have an unused empty database which I could use but if I try to import my *.sql file into this it spends about five minutes working on it — its 38mb, then I get the green notice saying that the import has been successful, but when I open the database there are no tables.

I will be most grateful for any help.

Re: Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

Supporting Wordpress blogs has suddenly become popular. I suspect Wordpress 5.x is now mandatory due to “hosting” updating PHP to version 7.1. However I’m several years out of date with supporting this.
So you’ll have to cope on your own. Sorry guys reality has taken over.

Re: Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

Rather than creating a new database using phpMyAdmin I think the control panel app has to be used

Re: Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

Many thanks spraxyt (you kindly helped me once before I think) but I’m afraid that I’m more used to dealing with this kind of thing on localhost (XAMPP) than on the PlusNet server, where the interface has changed some since I was last there. So I hate to ask this, but which ‘control panel app’, where ?

Fix
I was referring to hosting.plus.net. You must have logged in there when setting up phpMyAdmin.
The app is the DB Manager

Re: Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

 That's the answer!

I was logging in via a direct shortcut that Bob Pullen gave me long, long ago, which was to ccgi.<me>.plus.net/phpmyadmin. Hence the problem making changes when I got there, as you pointed out.

Many thanks again and I'm sorry it was such a dumb question.

Re: Wordpress Blog – raising the dead

Shouldn't the fix be awarded to @spraxyt?
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Mortified! I just clicked the button when I saw it.

Have now cancelled it and will register a fix for spraxyt. Thanks for putting me right.
