So now I got a fresh forum, but I also have my sql.gz database backup that I wanna reinstall into my forum.
How do I do that?

I always get this error :
''Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 10 seconds exceeded in /home/mainhost/public_html/phpMyAdmin/libraries/sqlparser.lib.php on line 334''

What should I do? Is there any easier way? Thank you!
If you can, it's better to do that from the command-line, using mysql commands as explained at

From phpmyadmin, if you have FILE privilege, you can use LOAD DATA INFILE as explained at
Ok will try. Will keep this post updated.

Can I use the admin control panel in the forum to import the backup and than upload it directly into the ACP?
Probably not -- That would pose a huge security risk if account got hacked.
