Hi Max, I have heard that the command loine is the best method but runnig one from a remote machine to the server is the problem although I do have remote access. Any suggestions? Examples of a command line import?

You might be running into one of the php resource limits set in php.ini (e.g. max_execution_time, memory_limit, max_input_time, post_max_size, upload_max_filesize). I've always found PMA handles non-compressed files better, and if it's larger than 1M or so, skip PMA and do it from the command line instead. -- Max Schwanekamp http://www.neptunewebworks.com/ -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
