Using phpMyAdmin I have exported a database from one server (php version 5.0.4) and want to import it onto a new server (php version 5.0.37) but when I import it I get an error message as follows:


Error
SQL query:

-- phpMyAdmin SQL Dump
-- version 2.6.0-pl3
-- http://www.phpmyadmin.net
--
-- Host: mysql4db.gradwell.net
-- Generation Time: Mar 21, 2007 at 12:51 PM
-- Server version: 4.1.10
-- PHP Version: 5.0.4
--
-- Database: `smallbone`
--
-- --------------------------------------------------------
--
-- Table structure for table `admin_user`
--
CREATE TABLE  `admin_user` (
 `user_name` tinytext NOT NULL ,
 `user_pass` tinytext NOT NULL ,
 `user_id` smallint( 6 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
 `type` tinyint( 4 ) NOT NULL default  '0',
KEY  `user_id` (  `user_id` )
) TYPE = MYISAM DEFAULT CHARACTER SET = latin1 AUTO_INCREMENT =3;


MySQL said:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'user_name` tinytext NOT NULL,
  `user_pass` tinytext NOT NULL,
  `user_id` small' at line 1




I don't know enough PHP/SQL to solve this! Help!
Thank you.

try

CREATE TABLE  `admin_user` (
 `user_name` tinytext NOT NULL ,
 `user_pass` tinytext NOT NULL ,
 `user_id` smallint( 6 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,
 `type` tinyint( 4 ) NOT NULL default  '0',
KEY  `user_id` (  `user_id` )
)

What version of mysql are you using?

In the meantime you can try this

replace `user_id` smallint( 6 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,

by `user_id` 'smallint'( 6 ) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT ,

The problem is almost 100% with the difference in MySQL versions than with php versions.

Try to re-export the db from the server using different options like "Complete Inserts" "Extended Inserts" and "Enclose table and field names with backquotes ". The last time I ran into a similar problem, I just tried different combinations of those options and I eventually got it to work. Better still, just make sure you have the same version of phpmyadmin installed on both servers and the same major number of mysql ( ie. mysql4.x or mysql5.x on both servers)

Sorry, meant to say PHPMyAdmin AND MySQL versions, ie. PHP version itself should not cause any problems, but the version of phpmyadmin and mysql will play a role; try to get the versions of both to be the same on both servers for maximum compatability.

I re-exported the database on a different computer this time and it worked! The settings were the same though... strange.
