There is a chance that you may have found a bug in the SQL parser. Please examine your query closely, and check that the quotes are correct and not mis-matched. Other possible failure causes may be that you are uploading a file with binary outside of a quoted text area. You can also try your query on the MySQL command line interface. The MySQL server error output below, if there is any, may also help you in diagnosing the problem. If you still have problems or if the parser fails where the command line interface succeeds, please reduce your SQL query input to the single query that causes problems, and submit a bug report with the data chunk in the CUT section below:

while this is going on from phpMyAdmin , i was able to create and restore a gzipped database manually.

Plaintext restore works correctly.
php.ini settings:

max_execution_time = 60 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 120 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
;max_input_nesting_level = 64 ; Maximum input variable nesting level
memory_limit = 196M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (128MB)

apache is set to keepalive on

what can be done to resolve this situation and to get phpmyadmin work with gzipped importing.

Thank you for any suggestions!

    I cannot reproduce this problem. Was the export gzipped by phpMyAdmin directly?

    Does a similar export done from just one table have the same problem?

    the export is done Directly from PhpMyAdmin,
    the export took place from the same server locally, and from another server - in both cases the import failed.
    after trying to export a single table gzipped, and importing it i still get an error.

    what could this be related to?

    I cannot see no php errors

    apache log:

    [23/Dec/2010:13:41:52 +0100]
    "POST /phpmyadmin/import.php"

    [23/Dec/2010:13:42:20 +0100]
    GET /phpmyadmin/themes/original/img/s_error.png HTTP/1.1" 200 548 "http://www.example.com/phpmyadmin/import.php"

    seems to take about 30 seconds from post to error.

    Can you reproduce this problem on http://demo.phpmyadmin.net/ if you choose the latest stable release?
