I am extremely new to MySQL and am running it on Windows. I am trying to restore a Database from a dumpfile in MySQL, but I get the following error:
$ >mysql -u root -p -h localhost -D database -o < dump.sql ERROR: ASCII '\0' appeared in the statement, but this is not allowed unless option --binary-mode is enabled and mysql is run in non-interactive mode. Set --binary-mode to 1 if ASCII '\0' is expected. Query: 'SQLite format 3'.
$ > mysql -u root -p -h localhost -D database --binary-mode -o < dump.sql but this gave me the following
ERROR at line 1: Unknown command '\☻'.
It is a 500 Mb dump file, and when I view its contents using gVIM, all I can see is expressions and data which is not comprehensible. Also when I try to copy contents from the file to post here all I can copy is :
SQLite format 3 This kind of seems strange.
