    While importing databases dump that are of large sizes in GB you may find issues with PHPmyadmin and some other clients also. To import the database you can use the command.

    mysql -uusername -p databasename < sqldump.sql
    

    where username is the username for your database, databasename is the name of database and sqldump.sql is your MYSQL dump file.

    You would be prompted for the password for the user given in the command so keep that handy.

    Hope it helps.
