MariaDB - How to Restore .sql file to Database in MariaDB or MySQL

Scenario: 

In our last post we created the logical backups of a database by using mysqldump. Now we need to restore that .SQL file to database.

Solution:

Login to MariaDB or MySQL database. Create an empty Database by using "create database DatabaseName" statement. In my case I create database ABC.

Once you exited form MariaDB or MYSQL, on Shell provide below statement to restore .sql file to database. In my case I used empty database ABC.

shell> mysql -u root -p DatabaseName< sqlfile.sql
