I have a sql dump of around 1million records that I need to get into my developers hands to work with.
I have a few ideas:
* Upload it all to my php admin and give him login details?
* Open with textpad and split it into 5 smaller files upload them to my host and give him a link to download them?
Can anyone pitch in with an idea or the best way to do this?
If you live near each other, surely its better to stick it on a cd or usb pen drive and mail it or hand it over to him.
If you can upload the file to the server via ftp in a folder no-one can guess the name of, and send him the link. Once he d/l's it, you can delete it.
At the moment, the phpmyadmin is probably the better idea at the moment...
I tried doing it on my local host but it is too much for me, i even tried some php scripts to insert the data however had no luck.
Decided that the best way forward was to zip the dump and give the developer access to it and get can deal with it.
Thanks again for your replies.
