Are you placing the file in the same directory as the MySQL data files? Are
the databases and the location you placed the text file on the same physical

Subject: load data in file


We have a 2 server setup. 1 server runs the web server with a PHP 
application, the second server is the mysql database server.

The php application needs to connect to the mysql server, to import data 
from a text file. For this we use Load Data Infile.

While everything else in the application works with regard to connecting to 
tge mysql database, when we try to import data we are getting the following 

Can't get stat of '/upload/wachtbak_cu.txt' (Errcode: 2)

We have checked, and the file is indeed uploaded to the /upload directory 
on the web server. However, after the connection is established with mysql 
database, mysql tries to find the file on the mysql server.

Question is this. Is it possible to import a file into mysql, using Load 
Data Infile, when you have 1 web server that runs the php apllication that 
imports the data, and 1 mysql database server?

If that's not possible, is there a way to achieve this?
