I can't create a database in phpMyAdmin

Databases need to be created in cPanel.

You can then edit your database from phpMyAdmin. For a flash tutorial on using phpMyAdmin click here.

If you have created the database in cPanel and you are still getting this error, look for a line in the beginning of your .sql file that contains "CREATE DATABASE" and remove that entire line. Now you should be able to complete the restore.
