Dear tony,

thanks first. when I use the sentence "mysql -h localhost -u oneie_oneie -p100ppneoc oneie_demo < data.sql", it replies Access denied for user"oneie_oneie". then I changed oneie_oneie to mysql admin name "Magento", but it still showes "access denied for user "Magento", could you help to expain...
