We backed up our mysql databases from our ubuntu server and need to re-attach them to another server.
I believe that all I need is the .sql file and need to run the attach command from the command line.  If this is correct what is the command?  For some reason I can't find the google answer.  Thanks in advance

I am thinking instead of attach you want to import it to new server?

Something like this works:

$ mysql -u username -p -h localhost databasename < data.sql

hope that helps

thanks, that worked...
I used a GUI to do that but I was thinking that you could "attach" a database but instead I had to create one and then import the .sql file
