How to add a uploaded SQL gzipped file to MySQL on a managed database?

Hi, I uploaded a large (+1.5GB) gzipped SQL file to my dropplet and would like to add it to my MySQL DB hosted on a managed database. Since there is no SSH on managed DB how should I uncompress and install my SQL file?

Hi @cmurph,

You can add droplet ID to MySQL managed database trusted source so that you will be able to access the managed database from the droplet where you have placed (+1.5GB) gzipped SQL file (backup file); Then you can run the below command to import data (make changes to command with your database cluster hostname, password, database name, and SQL file name).

gunzip < backupfile.sql.gz| mysql -u doadmin -p'password' -h -P 25060 -D databasename

For more information on importing data to MySQL managed database check the below link :

I hope this helps!

Hi @cmurph, is this a backup/data import that you would like to ingest into the instance?
