Question

How do I insert data from local database to the new database with tables that I have just created in command line?

In my local database, I have hundreds of data and it would be a worrisome for me if I have to insert all over again one by one. Is there any way I export the local data mysql to the server database so my website (php) can display those data. Please help and I would be really grateful. Thank you.

For your local database you can do this:

mysqldump  --user=YOURMYSQLUSER --password=YOURPASSWORD  --host=localhost YOURDATABASE > thedata.sql

which will create a data file with all of your data. then, upload that file to your server (your users home directory), and then run this command:

mysql --user=YOURMYSQLUSER --password=YOURPASSWORD  --host=localhost YOURDATABASE < thedata.sql
