Default MySQL backup on GoDaddy

Other hosts I have used have an explicit backup option for MySQL databases. Not GoDaddy. Eventually I decided that Export was the closest thing to backup I could find, and did it.

Now I have a little file called kt_wp.sql. I am upgrading WordPress, and do not expect to need a database backup, but what if I did? How on earth would I get the data out of that file into the DB? (I did not see an Import or Restore option.)

I know I am dim about this stuff, but I can’t find anything in my PHP/MySQL book that gives me any useful hints.

As host, GoDaddy is as confusing as in all else.
