I'm sorry but your question is a little unclear ... What is it that you want to package? You can upload data to your dedicated server using sftp (ftp over ssh) using something like Filezilla for example.

Can you provide more detail?

I have a  mysql db file which is aroud 60mb,please let know that how can i upload to server via Filezilla  to server?
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
If you know how to ssh into your server then you're halfway there ... You'll need your root password (or another user that has the necessary rights) to log into your server. I'm also assuming port 22 is open (ssh port).

Basically you follow this guideline but you replace the domain-name in the example with your domain-name or ip-address of your dedicated server.

Once connected search for a folder where you want to put the file, or just leave it in the root's directory.

I have created one mysql db on server and now want that upload its file(60mb) from my laptop to this db.
MOSTAGHASSIAuthor Commented:
As my understanding when we connect to server as user(because this db is under control of user) via filezila we can see the name of mysql and then transfer its file ,am i right?
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
Euhm no ... You connect to your server with any user that has the right to and put the file there, then you log onto your server via ssh and import the database file into MySQL that way, via command line if you don't have a GUI.

There's no way of uploading/importing the db file unless you have phpmyadmin installed on the server.
MOSTAGHASSIAuthor Commented:
Thanks,but on server i have Directadmin and phpmyadmin installed and have created 2 db and for one i have uploaded its .sql file from Directadmin and its ok because its size is around 2mb but for another db that its size is around 60mb, Directadmin does not allow since it is large and this is the main problem,is there a way via Directadmin?
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
You should be able to set this in Directadmin itself under server settings... It's set in bytes.

60mb in bytes = 62914560 but I suggest to set it maybe 65mb = 68157440
MOSTAGHASSIAuthor Commented:
Would you please let me know where in Directadmin ,i'm beginner in this way.
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
It's not that difficult ... But, thinking about it, 60mb is a large file, not sure you will be able to upload it before the timeout is reached.

It'll work better using sftp ...
