    That won’t work, that’s what I explained you can only import an SQL file that has to be exported from your previous server. You had to manually export it before shutting down the old server.

    Let’s try this though since you have all of your files!! :

    1] Stop the MySQL service from xampp

    2] Go into your current xampp/mysql folder and move both data and backup folders somewhere safe to keep them as a backup ( even though there are no databases yet ).

    3] Go to your old server files and under /xampp/mysql/ COPY the folders data and backup into your new server setup.

    4] Start your MySQL service and enter phpMyAdmin again.

    You should be able to see all the databases you had on your old server and access them properly.

    Tell me if that way helps !

    Again it is not the normal way of copying / moving databases but in your case it’s the only thing that could work.
