Importing data in postgres from .sql file

Archana K N





Hi,

    I used the "Export" option in the phpPgAdmin for exporting certain database and i got a zip file with .sql file inside it. I dont know how to import it back to postgres as i dont see any option for importing. I am a bit confused with the psql command prompt. Can anyone please help me to import the data back.

Hi,

You can use the psql command line:

$ unzip -c name_of_your_file.zip | psql -U postgres name_of_your_database
