Really Newbie question...


I have a fedora server located in seattle... and I live in a different city. Everytime... I have to do something with the server... I know... that I have to ssh or use putty to use the server. My question is... let's say that I want to import a backup sql dump into mysql database in the server.... and so... I type in the import commands... afterward... I let the server do whatever it need to do for 2 hours. The sql dump file is pretty big [1 gig]... and it needs more times to import the sql dump. but... somehow... the computer that i used to putty into the server ... got disconnect...So... is the server still importing the sql dump? or do I have to reimport it again.


Thx a lot.

it may or it may not you never know with those beees %-) (c)WinneyThePoo
to avoid such situations people invented @screen@ command
simple example:
ssh your_server
screen
"dump_your_databese"(i don't know which command you use)
CTRL-a-d (to detouch your dumping session)
now you may safely disconnect and even if U disconnected without you will - your show will go on $-) to enter the session again
ssh your_server
CTRL-x
