How do I upload my mphMyAdmin database to the site? It says no database selected when I import, but it won't allow me to create one so that I can import my table.

You need to make sure there isn't already a database on the target server with the same name. With your database on your local drive, here are the steps you should follow to import that file with phpMyAdmin.

  1. Log in to phpMyAdmin.
  2. Create an empty database from the Databases tab.
  3. Click the Import tab.
  4. Click the Browse button.
  5. Locate the file to be imported.
  6. Click Open or OK, depending on your browser.
  7. Select the proper collation from the drop-down.
  8. Select the format of the import file.
  9. Click Go.

After the import process is complete, check the site to make sure everything is good. If you keep getting an error kindly take a screenshot and send it to answers@afrihost.com.
