Question: How to execute SQL commands from a file in postgresql?
In my case I had a .sql file with hundreds of insert statements and I wanted to run all of them, I was left with two options namely manually entering every command via copy and paste or executing the file. I went for the second option and it worked. I used Postgres 8.4 on the command line on a Ubuntu machine.
Please follow the following steps
- Connect to the relevant database eg.
- Then run
- All commands will be executed.
