To manually initialize the contents of a MySQL database.
There are several different ways to manually initialize the contents of a MySQL database. This document describes a simple way of accomplishing this task. However, experienced DBA's can choose their preferred method to accomplish the same task.
The easiest way to initialize the contents of the Master-DB is to follow the appropriate "stripe" MySQL Database Setups tutorial.
After you've completed the steps above, the Master-DB instance should be serving the contents of the downloaded DB file. To confirm, connect locally to the MySQL server and show the list of databases/schemas that it's currently serving. For example: echo "show databases;" | mysql -u root. You should be able to find the name of the imported DB in the list of database names.
