Mysql importing problem

i have just switched from one hosting company to my own dedicated server and i had a forum on the old server that used a mysql dB.
Now i have exported the db to a .sql file and im using my test server to test this out.
I ahve installed the forums on the new server, started up a new dB and it is working fine.
What i want to do now is upload the old .sql file into it. I never had a problem before using the phpmyadmin tookl but now it times out.
So i figured i would upload the file to the server and run the mysql command.
I uploaded it but when i run the command it doesnt find the uploaded file.
my question is , what folder do i need to upload this .sql file to in order for mysql to see it when i run the command?
I am su to root
The command im running is mysql -u username -ppassword newdbname <new.sql file;
Is this right? it appears to want to work but tells me :
su: ivbd.sql: No such file or directory

I just logged onto my ftp onto the root account and dropped it in that folder, is that wrong?

How did you export out your DB in MySQL? did you include all INSERTs? If you did, you need to take these steps via MySQL CLI:

1. login AS root or user with all SUPER priv into MySQL
2. create empty DB
3. type (without single quotes) 'use [NEW DB NAME];'
4. run this command : (without single quotes or brackets) '\. [file/full/path/here/][FILENAME].sql;'
5. grant the appropriate user ID its priv to read / write to new DB
6. Test connection

you should be set after that.
