If you are importing a MySql dump into a new instance, you'll need to remember to create the database first. It's an often forgotten step.

  • CREATE DATABASE database_name;

Additionally, it looks like you are trying to run the mysql command from a MySQL shell. Before running that command, return to the normal command line.

Being able to import and export your database is an important skill to have. You can use data dumps for backup and restoration purposes, so you can recover older copies of your database in case of an emergency, or you can use them to migrate data to a new server or development environment. This tutorial will cover how to export the database as well as import it from a dump file in MySQL and MariaDB.
