2.7.2.1.1.4. Lots of errors when importing an archive

When importing a database dump, you may encounter many errors like “Unexpected symbol"And / or"Unexpected start of expression", Which looks something like this: Please note that errors may vary.

These errors are the result of importing a zipped database dump, most often .tar.gz... Such an import cannot be completed correctly, so there is no need to repeat it.

To solve the problem, unzip the archive and get a file in SQL format from it, and then import the resulting SQL file. This can be done in one of the following ways:

    1. Unzip the archive. For an archive with the extension .tar.gz the command to unpack into the same directory will look like this:
      tar -zxvf name_archive.tar.gz
  • Unzip the archive using any available means (for example, using an archiver application on the local PC) and import in a suitable way.
