Hello gus firpo,

I'm sorry you're having trouble importing your WordPress SQL database. The cause of this issue is most likely a line in your SQL file similar to:

CREATE DATABASE gus1104401383276;

In order to import your file to your new WordPress database in cPanel, you'll want to comment out that line in your SQL backup file. Instructions for how to do this, as well as more information on why this occurs can be found in our article
How to resolve a 1044 Access Denied error in MySQL

Please let us know if you have any questions or need any additional assistance.
