I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

> Download and install the MySQL server.
>  In SQL Workbench, connect to your new instance (localhost if running on your PC)
> Go to Manage Import/Export and 'Import from Disk', selecting the file you backed up and downloaded from phpmyadmin.
