On a centos linux server, I'm moving from one server to another.

I dumped my current database using this:

# mysqldump -u root -ptmppassword --all-databases > /tmp/all-database.sql

then moved the database.sql file over.

Now, how do I restore all databases?  There is some content in the current databases of the same name that I would like overwritten,

I would have use phpmyadmin to back up the tables in the database and then use to it to restore the tables to a different  MySQL

Yeh, I would have liked to do that too, unfortunately I'm dealing with a server that got hacked and is in recovery mode, I can ssh in and do a limited number of things, but no phpmyadmin :)

note this will overwrite all including the mysql security/db/.
the file has the data in clear text readable directions.
on the new system.
mysql  -u root -p < all-database.sql

In theory you need to run mysql_upgrade after - it knows how to update system DBs for last few mayor versions.
Should it fail you must go database by database.
