To import and export data in SQL format using phpMyAdmin, follow the steps below:


IMPORT DATA:

  1. Open phpMyAdmin and select the database you want to import the SQL data into.
  2. Go to the "Import" tab at the top of the page.
  3. Click on the "Browse" button next to the "File to import" field and select the SQL file you want to import.
  4. Leave the default import settings as they are, unless you have specific requirements.
  5. Click the "Go" button at the bottom of the page.


phpMyAdmin will then import the SQL file into the selected database.


EXPORT DATA:

  1. Open phpMyAdmin and select the database containing the data you want to export.
  2. Go to the "Export" tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select the tables you want to export or choose the "Select All" option to export all tables.
  4. Choose the export method. "Quick" exports the data as a single SQL file, while "Custom" allows you to specify advanced export options.
  5. Leave the default export settings as they are, unless you have specific requirements.
  6. Click the "Go" button at the bottom of the page.


phpMyAdmin will then generate the SQL export file, and you can choose to download it or save it on the server.


Keep in mind that importing or exporting large SQL files may require adjusting the PHP settings such as the maximum file upload size and maximum execution time.
