wp db import

Imports a database from a file or from STDIN.

$ wp db import [<file>] [--dbuser=<value>] [--dbpass=<value>] [--<field>=<value>] [--skip-optimization]

Runs SQL queries using DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_USER and DB_PASSWORD database credentials specified in wp-config.php. This does not create database by itself and only performs whatever tasks are defined in the SQL.

OPTIONS

[<file>]
The name of the SQL file to import. If '-', then reads from STDIN. If omitted, it will look for '{dbname}.sql'.
[--dbuser=<value>]
Username to pass to mysql. Defaults to DB_USER.
[--dbpass=<value>]
Password to pass to mysql. Defaults to DB_PASSWORD.
[--<field>=<value>]
Extra arguments to pass to mysql. Refer to mysql binary docs.
[--skip-optimization]
When using an SQL file, do not include speed optimization such as disabling auto-commit and key checks.

EXAMPLES

# Import MySQL from a file.
$ wp db import wordpress_dbase.sql
Success: Imported from 'wordpress_dbase.sql'.
