Merging a .sql? - MinecraftGeek - 2012-11-03

I want to merge a .sql into my forum.
How would i do so without the database overwriting all my current tables??

Thanks

you need to find out what is in the file. create table statements, or drop table statements, index fields included, etc.

what is the source of the data? are you trying to merge two forum databases?

merge "one" what? another forum, if so is it myBB, phpBB, vB,what? you need to create a new database and then load the SQL file you have into that and then run the merge system
