There are lots of unanswered question here. Just off the top of my head . . .
1. Is the import file an *.sql file or some other type of file?
2. Do you have shell access to the server?
3. What database program was this created in?
4. What database program are you trying to import it into?
5. Do you have root access to the database program on the Linux box (Note: that is not the same as root access to the OS).
If this a mysql error, this might help:
