Subject: [NOVICE] How to load a dump file into a DB
I need to load a pgdump.sql file into a new Postgres db, but I'm totally not
being able to do it. I am no programmer, I have installed the latest Postgres
version for Windows, run the server, open psql. According to the pg_dump
documentation, I should just run the command "$ psql -d newdb -f db.sql" into
psql, but when I do it, nothing seems to be happening, I just get a new
"postgres=#" line right away. I did change the db and file names to my names.
Can anybody give me any hint on how this should be done?? I've been searching
all around without success. Is pg_dump already installed with the main
installation? I even searched for a different way to convert this file into a PG
database, but could not find a tool to specifically do that.
Thanks a lot, any help will be greatly appreciated!
