Problem uploading big sql file via phpMyAdmin

I faced problem uploading a huge sql file to my shared hosting server. The size was not that big. It was only 1.8MB in size with about 30,000 records but phpMyAdmin (provided in cpanel) still failed to fully upload and run the file.

I then googled for a solution.

One of the solutions suggest to use SSH but I’m not familiar with it.

Another solution is by using mysqldumper but the configuration seems quite tedious.

Then I found another solution called BigDump which is very straight forward. You upload a PHP script together with your huge sql file via FTP. Then just run the PHP script as usual. In a second all the data has been restored in your database.
