Restore MySQL Dump

Hello,

I am trying to restore a MySQL dump using the command,

mysqldump -u root -p database < sqlfile.sql
Enter password: XXXXXX

I get:


-- MySQL dump 10.11
--
-- Host: localhost    Database: database
-- ------------------------------------------------------
-- Server version       5.0.92-community

/*!40101 SET @OLD_CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT=@@CHARACTER_SET_CLIENT */;

/*!40101 SET @OLD_COLLATION_CONNECTION=@@COLLATION_CONNECTION */;
/*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;
/*!40103 SET @OLD_TIME_ZONE=@@TIME_ZONE */;

Why do I get this instead of restoring database ?

Garry GlendownConsulting and Network/Security SpecialistCommented:
The command "mysqldump" is used to CREATE the dump. In order to restore the contents, you need to use "mysql -u root -p database < sqlfile.sql" ... (if the dump only contains the single DB, make sure the database you wish to restore to exists ...)
