Restore .pmb backup navicat without connection

Hi there,

We recently moved to another server, but the database wasn't backed up. We now have a backup in navicat, but the new server refuses remote connections.

Therefore, we can't extract the contents and copy these back to the database.

Would you have any way to open a .pmb navicat backup file and export it to .sql ?

Any help greatly appreciated !

Many thanks
Adam

According to this: http://wiki.navicat.com/wiki/index.php/I_have_lost_my_database,_what_should_I_do%3F
you can either create a new database with the same name and restore into that (after which you can extract the data however you want) or right-click the pmb and select "Extract SQL".

HTH,
