Mysql – phptheadmin “no data received to import” error, how to fix

mysqlphpmyadminxampp

I am using XAMPP on a pc atwork to host a database. I exported a backup ("bintra.sql") using phpmybackuppro. I use xampp on a mac at home, and when I try to import the sql file located on my desktop, I get this error.

No data was received to import. Either no file name was submitted, or the file size exceeded the maximum size permitted by your PHP configuration. See FAQ 1.16.

Now, the file size of bintra.sql is 922kb. The max size allowed indicated on the phpmyadmin screen is 3,072KiB, so I don't think it is the size that is preventing the import.

I'm using phpmyadmin v2.11.7

Does anyone have any ideas why no data is being received to import?

Comment Responses:

These are my upload settings from php.ini

;Whether to allow HTTP file uploads.
file_uploads = On
;Temporary directory for HTTP uploaded files (will use system default if not specified). 
//upload_tmp_dir =
;Maximum allowed size for uploaded
files. 

upload_max_filesize = 3M
;Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept.
post_max_size = 8M

EDIT:

Tried using Mamp instead. Works fine with the same sql file. I don't know why.

Best Solution

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND THIS WORKED FOR ME :

Try these different settings in C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.8\bin\php.ini

Find:
post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 2M
max_execution_time = 30
max_input_time = 60
memory_limit = 8M

Change to:
post_max_size = 750M
upload_max_filesize = 750M
max_execution_time = 5000
max_input_time = 5000
memory_limit = 1000M

Then restart your xampp or wamp to take effect

or stop then start only apache in xammp
