import a table into a DB

Recommended Posts


Why can't I import a table into my existing DB using the command below:

 mysql -u root -p mydatabase < file.sql;

This has always worked but now I get the following error.


ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 1: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.7.27, for Linux (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper Copy' at line 1

mysql version is 


vagrant@vagrant:~$ mysql --version
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.7.25, for Linux (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper

Thanks !

Kindly ignore the question. I think the sql is incorrect.
