    Sounds like you did things in the wrong order.

    You should run setup first. That creates a fresh database or uses an existing <span class=”gdbbx-bbcode-underline” style=”text-decoration: underline;”>empty</span> one).
    Then if you want to import an existing database, empty the (not delete) the newly created one before you import the old one. You can still do that now if you want.

    As I had difficulty importing the tables from “theroyals”, my host did it for me using the uploaded gzip file. Therefore, don’t want to delete. If I create new dB called “royals” and run setup, how do I get the tables with all my data over? Or do I need exact name thereby deleting database, setup, ask host to re-import?
