I looked up the definition for what an SQL file was after several failures to install a Drupal tutorial in a database on a host site. I tried several times & always got a message that my imports were successful but the database indicated it contained no tables as well as zero data. Turns out the creator of the tutorial didn't include an SQL file with the info provided.
