Import MySQL database

I’d recommend doing something like the following to import a MySQL database:

  1. Follow this guide to hosting a MySQL database on Render.
  2. Use mysqldump to get a backup file for the existing database.
  3. Use magic wormhole to transfer the backup file to your mysql Render service.
  4. Import the backup file that you just transferred with the mysql CLI.

For steps 3 and 4 you’ll need to use the built-in Shell in the Render dashboard. I’m happy to elaborate on any of these steps :slight_smile:
