How do I restore a MySQL database?

Restoring a database can be complex if you're not sure how to do this. However, below is a quick outline of how this can be done. Please follow the steps below closely:

   1. Login to your cPanel (Login information is in your welcome email)
   2. Click on "PHPMyAdmin"
   3. Click on the database you want to restore to, then click on "Import"
   4. Click on "Browse" and select the database you wish to import (.sql file)
