Import / export large MySQL dumps on Windows

I’ve to import 1GB MySql dump file today. It was the biggest MySql dump I’ve ever worked with and it gave me a bit of problems before I managed to imported it on my development platform.

phpMyAdmin is unsuitable for this kind of tasks and other Windows GUI tools I have for dealing with MySql were unusable as well.

The key was to modify my.ini file and increase max_allowed_packet value.

Then I used windows command line tool (run cmd) to import sql dump.

If I’d want to export database I’d use
