I'm running XAMPP on Windows locally. Trying to import a large SQL file into MySQLwith content I am not familiar with, using phpMyAdmin (doing a demo). The error message I'm getting is: #1062 - Duplicate entry '1' for key 'PRIMARY'.

When I attempt the same on my hosting server, the error message is #1062 - Duplicate entry '1' for key '1'. "Do not use AUTO_INCREMENT for zero values" is checked by default on the web hosting server.

phpMyAdmin that I'm using locally is an older version and the option "Do not use AUTO_INCREMENT for zero values" is not available.

I would greatly appreciate any help.
