Hi there, I've been trying unsuccessfully to import a database from a dump file to my new host. Whenever I try using mySQL, I get this error message:


SQL query:

-- MySQL dump 10.11
-- Host: Database: wendycoc_pd-- ------------------------------------------------------
-- Server version 5.0.92-community

MySQL said: Documentation
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1

There are no such characters there. The old DB was UTF8 and the new one is UTF8 so it can't be the character set, can it? What am I doing wrong?
