I'm trying to restore a database backup created using mysqldump. If I do:
$ mysqldump -u ROOT -p DATABASE_NAME < DATABASE.SQL
the database remains empty, even though I get some screen output and the line "Dump completed...", followed by a timestamp. I could not spot any error messages in the output
I made sure I quit MySQL before attempting the restore and I have tried to include the password in the command line, with no success. However, if I try:
it works just fine.
Many thanks in advance.
