Hello, I have created a new database with Network Solutions.  THey have created a SQL database user for me which I have set to DB Owner and has the same permissions as dbo.

I am trying to restore this empty database on the server with this script:

RESTORE DATABASE myDatabase
   FROM DISK = 'C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\SQL2005_460116_myDatabase_backup.bak'

I get this error:

Msg 3110, Level 14, State 1, Line 2
User does not have permission to RESTORE database 'myDatabase'.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.


What permisison do I have to set to be able to restore myDatabase.  I only have access to that database, but I have full access to it including security.  Do I need access to master?

User does not have permission to RESTORE database 'myDatabase'.

to RESTORE a database, you need CREATE DATABASE permissions on the instance.
