My website hoster is using a older version of mysql, version 5.051a.
I am having trouble importing the database that is exported from my website that , into my local xamp version 1.7.3 which has mysql version 5.1.x

I am getting the error:

#1046 - No database selected

I am 100% sure I selected the exported sql file from my webserver. I tried installing mysql 5.0.51a into the xamp mysql directory, but that doesn't work....

In most cases, there is one big difference between a webspace-hoster phpmyadmin and a local one:
Your hoster automatically opens your (default) Database if you open phpmyadmin. locally you have all rights, like add unlimited databases.
So, if you want to import a dump, you must select a database in your local phpmyadmin first. Otherwise mysql don't know, where to put your data.
