Create MS SQL database using mdf file


Dont know if this is the right forum to ask this question. But I cant find suitable ""Location"" from the dropdown. So I am posting here.


I have .mdf file of MS SQL database. How can I create a database on GoDaddy using that .mdf file?

Re: Create MS SQL database using mdf file

Hi @Digitalpal. You'll probably need to convert your MDF file into SQL in order to be able to import it. You can usually do this in database management software, like SQL Server Management Studio. This Help Center article might help you with the process. You can probably skip the first part that talks about creating a backup. Hope that helps.
