Lando ships with a helper
db-import script that is available in all our
LEMP based recipes. Used in the recipe context it should import a database dump into the recipe-provided database by default but can be used on additional database services as well.
You can also import databases into other hosts and databases. It will currently handle uncompressed, gzipped or zipped dump files.
This command will wipe out the target database before it runs the import unless you use the
lando db-import somedumpfile.sql.gz

DB dump must reside within app directory
Due to restrictions in how Docker handles file sharing your database dump MUST exist somewhere inside of your app directory. This means that IT IS A VERY GOOD IDEA to make sure you add SQL dumps to your
# Import a file into the recipe-provided db lando db-import dump.sql # Import a file into an auxiliary second database called 'db2' # with a db called `dataz` lando db-import dump.zip --host db2 # Import without destroying the target database lando db-import dump.zip --no-wipe # Pipe stdout into db-import # NOTE: this is a bit finicky right now cat dump.sql | lando db-import
Options: --host, -h The database service to use [default: "database"] --no-wipe Do not destroy the existing database before an import
If you are not using one of our
php-y recipes you can add the
db-import command and default options to your
.lando.yml as follows.

You will need to rebuild your app with
lando rebuild to apply the changes to this file. You can check out the full code for this example over here.
