I have downloaded my Word Press database to place it in my local server in order to update my site. All has gone well until I get to the stage for importing the database into localhost. i keep getting the following message:

--

-- Database: `holmgate1_newch`

--

-- --------------------------------------------------------

--

-- --------------------------------------------------------

--

-- Table structure for table `wpstg0_commentmeta`

--

CREATE TABLE `wpstg0_commentmeta` (

`meta_id` bigint(20) UNSIGNED NOT NULL,

`comment_id` bigint(20) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',

`meta_key` varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL,

`meta_value` longtext

) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8

MySQL said:

#1046 - No database selected

I have definitely selected the downloaded database and I get the same message every time, even though I have downloaded several copies of the DB.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello and thanks for contacting us. You could try removing the database name lines. Also, ensure whatever software you're using has matching settings for the database you're importing.
