I have a problem. I have a 400 MB SQL Database Storage, on my computer. This is huge.
I want to transfer it to my server, in a datbase machine from my Web site. WHAT DO DO?

Dump it as SQL in a file and compress it. If it's a MySQL database it's easier and a lot faster to do a cold copy of the database files. Personally, I wouldn't trust an answer from a random guy. I would like to read it myself in the manual.

If the sql file is 400 MB and then using mysql < filename.sql would do the job of importing. But is it possible to import a zipped file like mysql < filename.sql.zip or mysql < filename.tar ?

What kind of database is it? (mySql, MS SQL Server, etc.)

anjanesh: Pipe the output from tar, unzip, gunzip or bunzip2 to mysql. Ie. mysql < gunzip -c database_backup.sql.bz The -c argument is for: "-c --stdout --to-stdout Write output on standard output; keep original files unchanged." - gunzip's manpage.
