I exported a database from MySql on my server to my local PC

When I try to import the DB into phpMyAdmin it fails.

The test file is over 5 MBytes

I received the error
No data was received to import. Either no file name was submitted, or the file size exceeded the maximum size permitted by your PHP configuration. See FAQ 1.16.

Can anyone say why this may be happening please?
Many Thanks

John

Probably the file was not uploaded, as it exceeds the upload_max_filesize (by default 2M) on php.ini.

Modify that and all should be well.

HTH,

Go to XAMPP Control Panel, on the Apache line click Config, the click on php.ini.

Once you have php.ini opened, search for "upload_max_filesize" and change it from 2M to 6M or whatever you need.

Save, then restart Apache (click on Stop, wait, click on Start).

See images.
