Hi, all!

I am new to wikipedia world. I have a Windows XP machine running XAMPP. I
have installed Mediawiki 1.7.1 and is working fine. Now I want to dump
English wikipedia. I have read and used a lot many applicable commands but
none seems to work. Today I have used the following command:

java -jar mwdumper.jar --format=sql:1.5
enwiktionary-20060927-pages-articles.xml.bz2 | mysql -u user -p passw wikidb

According to a suggestion I have placed mwdumper.jar and the dump .bz2 file
in the folder where mysql.exe exists.  (any other suggestion????)

The command seems to run successful.

When i open wikidb in mysql there is no record in any table , not a single
entry. I have deleted from the page, revision and text tables. There is no
prefix set to wikidb tables. I have looked all forums which i found. And now
its driving me nuts!!

Can someone tell/HELP what i am missing. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance!!
